London might be obsessed right now about an opening ceremony of a sporty nature, but if you want a bit more of a fashion based affair then head to the London opening of Opening Ceremony – the renowned New York style store.
Opening Ceremony is a super cool retailer who select fab products from emerging American designers and artists and then house them in their stylish and hip store, for you to shop like crazy. Each year they also add a new selection of designers from a chosen country, with past countries including Brazil, Sweden and Japan.
So check out Opening Ceremony from 19 July in their new London home on King Street in Covent Garden.
Let the games begin and all that!

Jonathan Adler is an American interior design guru, who loves using modern forms, bold colours and strong graphics to create a harmonious home.
His interior design is highly regarded and his collection for the home spans decorative accessories such as rugs, lighting, pillows, pottery, tabletop accessories, cushions and throws, all in his happy chic style.
So if this all tempts you, head to his first UK store which opened last month on Sloane Avenue, London. As Jonathan’s manifesto is quoted ‘We believe our lamps will make you look younger and thinner’ what could possibly go wrong.
Vivienne Westwood for The Rug Company features a British flag, her signature tartan and strong geometric patterns, plus this beautiful Magnolia Black creation (right), which is a hand-knotted Tibetan wool number.
Take your pick, to add some softness under foot but more importantly to add some Vivienne Westwood individuality and flair to your home.
The Rug Company also feature collections by other big design names such as Alexander McQueen, Tom Dixon, Sam Taylor-Wood, Paul Smith, Diane Von Furstenberg and Ron Arad.
The Selfridges shoe hall is a must-shop, with brands like Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Viktor & Rolf, Tory Burch and of course the likes of Topshop and Kurt Geiger.
These gorgeous Dolly shoes from Charlotte Olympia are perfect for wearing on a night out to recreate some old school glamour. Inspired by Agatha Christie, the Charlotte Olympia A/W 2011 collection titled ‘To Die For’ is a visual delight capturing the glitz, drama and decadence of the 1930’s Art Deco period.
The obsessively groomed and stylish Poirot would be proud. Miss Marple need not apply.
