The culmination of 2 years of work and the realisation of founder Anya Hindmarch’s long-held dream, Anya Village launched on the Cadogan Estate in London’s Chelsea this week.

The Village is a collection of five neighbouring Anya Hindmarch stores located near Sloane Street. The ‘houses’ will be ever-evolving and offer unique collaborations throughout the year.

Hindmarch said: “I feel that the next 10 years are going to be about ‘localisation’ not ‘globalisation’ and it feels so right to return to the brand’s roots here on the Cadogan Estate and to realise my dream of The Village. If retail is to exist in a digital world, there needs to be a reason to visit.”

The five unique storefronts include:

 

Anya Cafe

At the heart of The Village is the new Anya Cafe. Open from 8am-8pm to dine in or for takeaway, it serves breakfast, lunch and early evening drinks. Inspired by the British cafe of old but reimagined with the finest ingredients, and some trademark Anya humour, the Cafe offers a selection of specially created AH cakes and biscuits, designed to eat in or be taken away as gifts.

The Village Hall

A space that embodies different creative concepts and collaborations throughout the year and launches with a Hair Salon in celebration of founder Anya Hindmarch’s book ‘If In Doubt Wash Your Hair’. The pop-up Salon will offer ‘Shampoo and Therapy’ with coffee and cocktails for three weeks starting May 17th where you can book in groups of up to 4 friends.

The Plastic Shop

Dedicated to Anya’s passion for circularity of materials and reducing plastic going into landfill, the Plastic Shop centres around our ‘I Am A Plastic Bag’ sustainable collection and is a platform to showcase and collaborate with others working and creating in this field.

The Labelled Shop

Dedicated to the art of organisation and offering the best-selling Labelled collection: a system of cases and bags that are (quite literally) labelled to keep you organised. These will be presented alongside collaborations and workshops exploring the subject of organisation with an on-site embosser also offering personalisation.

The Bespoke Shop

Our very first Anya Hindmarch Shop that opened on Pont Street in 1996 and was the Anya Hindmarch HQ for the early years of the business. Our Bespoke Shop continues to focus on personalised gifts to pass down the generations that are not about a season but mark a special moment in time.
