London is a bustling international city filled with everything from designer flower shops to funky barber shops (Jack the Clipper might be one of our favorite names ever). It’s also home to some of the most unabashedly awesome fashion we’ve seen anywhere in the world. You can plunk down pounds for high heels inspired by Animal from “The Muppet Show” at Irregular Choice over on Carnaby Street or venture out for a serious plastic fix courtesy of the acrylic artisans at Tatty Devine.
Tatty Devine got its start in 1999, when two friends named Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden combined their laser sharp forces. The duo’s one and only Brick Lane location opened its doors in 2001. Thankfully you can also purchase their gorgeous designs online via Tatty Devine’s website.
You’ll find tried and true designs that have been around for years as well as a mix of seasonal pieces and higher priced special limited editions.
Tatty Devine designs range from standout necklaces featuring everything from Tyrannosaurus rex to giant red lobsters.
We’re massive fans of Tatty Devine’s new seasonal collection called, “Spring Forth and Break Through.” The line was inspired by Igor Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring.”
The perky floral designs call to mind the many lovely flower shops we saw while strolling around London.
Throughout the years, Tatty Devine has collaborated and tapped into a number of global events and local organizations for inspiration like Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. For Tatty Devine’s, “Girls Got Ideas,” collection it teamed up with another London shop called Poppy’s Papercuts to roll out a slew of designs focusing on empowerment and women.
If you’re on the hunt for a crazy cool souvenir, Tatty Devine has a neat Stonehenge line it designed alongside English Heritage. English Heritage preserves hundreds of historic building and monuments, including Stonehenge, across England.
If laser cut bouquets or animal pendants don’t strike your fancy, you can work with Tatty Devine to design your own personalized name necklace. Each piece can be made and hand finished right on the spot by Team Tatty. Next time we pop into London, we’ll be hankering to sign up for one of Tatty Devine’s jewelry making workshops, so we can buff up our own design skills. Maybe we’ll catch you there.
