The Adventures of B&B ~ Harvey Nichols Birmingham

HN 2

Last week we were lucky enough to be invited amongst a select few to experience the brand new Harvey Nichols store in the Mailbox, Birmingham before it opened to the public. Who were we to say no to a sneak peak and spot of shopping with one of our favourite luxury stores!

Set in the heart of the Mailbox, the new 45,000 square foot store was designed in collaboration with the retail design specialist, Virgile + Partners. We loved the super luxe feel of the store with oodles of brass, copper and marble. Any store that uses gold over silver in it’s shop fittings is all right in our book.

The store showcases over 200 of the world’s most desirable brands across womenswear, menswear, beauty, food and wine, many of which are exclusive to Harvey Nichols Birmingham. The exquisite edit of brands are complemented by exceptional services throughout the store, including beauty rooms offering the very latest in beauty enhancing and relaxing treatments plus a highly trained Style Concierge team who will be on hand to offer expert advice on seasonal trends and styling tips across fashion and beauty. Icing on the cake are the delightfully swish changing rooms that feature neat sliding doors and cupboards to protect your modesty aswell as the very first of it’s kind video to film you 360 degrees and all angels to answer that age old adage “Does my bum look big in this” {no Dahh-ling, of course not}

Exclusive to the new Birmingham store, Harvey Nichols has collaborated with celebrity chef and owner of the Michelin starred Purnell’s restaurant, Glynn Purnell. We sampled a few dishes cooked in front of us by the charismatic chef himself and they were not only delicious but were extremely pleasing on the eye & fit in with all the surrounding eye candy in the store {and we are not just talking about Glynn}

We had fun playing dress up with the lovely shoe department, had an introduction to available beauty treatments and got our gobs around some of the most heavenly sweet treats in the small but perfectly formed mini food hall.

So if you fancy a day trip from London or are nearby, go shop, go eat, go grab a cocktail at the super stylish bar and take a selfie in the delectable black and gold loos. ‘Cos who doesn’t love a good luxury #loofie. See you there.
