Fashion Fans, rejoice! Urban Outfitters sister label, Free People, has finally found a place on the British high street. Popping up on Chelsea’s elite King’s Road, the boutique will play home to trademark boho dresses, tops and accessories. (We’ve got our eye on a seriously sweet pair of winter boots.) But be quick, in true London style, its doors opened as a pop-up store meaning won’t be around for long, leaving its residency in early 2016.
Pop-up shops have become increasingly popular over the past few years in the UK, opening for anything from 2 days to 2 months and beyond. So to make things a little easier, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite temporary haunts currently in London. Don’t hang around though, they won’t be there forever!
The UK’s favourite high street store has spent its summer showcasing its Divided collection at a six-week long pop-up in East London. As well as treating yourself to a new outfit, the pop-up also allows you to enjoy DJ sets, complimentary manicures and a spot of jewellery designing.
