Clutch bags

Friday, 24 August 2012

Just some clutch bags we are lusting after in the studio! Above that wonderful circle of blue, clutch bag by Jimmy Choo.
Classic Pucci

Pretend you're Daisy Buchanan with this embroidered clutch from Olympia-le-Tan

I'm a sucker for a splash of bright orange, and love this clutch from Marc Jacobs.

The fantastic range of Allegra neon clutches in the Anzu Pop-up shop Pomp, 2 Hoxton St. Grab one whilst you can - the shop ends on Wednesday!

Dries van Noten set

Love the backdrop for this past Dries van Noten catwalk show. Would make the perfect studio!

The Anzu team time travels

Friday, 17 August 2012

It was strange the other day for the Anzu team to pop to the shops and suddenly find ourselves in the Edwardian period, 1909 to be exact. The first sign was this car.

The African shop had been turned into an all purpose hardware shop.

We then found out we were on the set of the new Itv drama about Harry Gordon Selfridge, which is billed to be the next Downton Abbey. 

Mr. Selfridge reolutionised English retail and lived a glamorous life until he lost all in the Depression, and moved from his grand castle in Hampshire giving up his lavish entertainments to move to Putney and travel on the bus. Sounds like great drama, you can read more about his life in this wikipedia article here

Don't be fooled - this isn't Mr. Selfridge or even an actor but Anzu's very own graphic designer, Ben getting into the spirit of things. Sporting a bowler hat and slightly out of era VE flag, both available at Anzu's Pomp

Snaps around the East End

Thursday, 9 August 2012

One of the things I really love about the East End is there are always quirky things going on and it has also been interesting seeing it prepare for the Olympics. Above Olympic graffiti, spotted via Made in Shoreditch.

The beautiful Leadenhall market (which dates back to the 14th century) decks itself in British flags ready for the Marathon.

The Olympic torch arrived in Shoreditch, near the Anzu studio.

In the past week we have seen a man dressed in an astronaut suit holding a giant banana, this character jumping around and a LOT of people in togas.

And of course the Anzu Pop-up shop opened. Yesterday we opened Time Out to see it had been picked as their shopping event of the week! Thank you Time Out.

Meadow posies at Anzu's Pomp shop

Tuesday, 7 August 2012

Hattie from That Flower shop's bouquets have now arrived in the Anzu Pomp shop!

And even better still Hattie will be teaching how to make her beautiful headdresses in the shop. Email us for details of the evening at

Hattie's posies of flowers look as if they have been picked from an impossibly beautiful English meadow. 

The hand-tied posies have country flowers, herbs, berries, seed pods and British foliage. Sophisticated yet natural.

Hattie often displays her smaller posies in old jam jars and ceramic pots.

So have an English meadow in your home for only £10-12. Stop by the Anzu Pomp shop, 2 Hoxton St, N1 and treat yourself!
