Big Brit design names Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and Giles Deacon (describing the collab as “super-exciting”) have all lent their considerable talents to customising the classic swing-y Selfridges shopper. Simply shop til you drop, and have your purchases packed up in a limited-edition bag - bound to become collector’s items. “I thought, ‘If I ever got to 100, I’d want something juicy as a reward,’” said Ms McCartney of her pineapple-adorned number.
You could just spend pence a lil’ something to get your designer carrier, but we’ve got our eye on some of the centenary products: limited-ed yellow Converse, £75; Giuseppe Zanotti platform heels, £585; or a special edition trendy Moleskine notebook, £15.99. Elsewhere celebrations abound: enjoy Gay Bingo with Jonny Woo; watch’n’listen to catwalk shows with superstar DJ Henry Holland; and dance to acts such as ultra-cool VV Brown on Music Fridays.
