Anatomé was created by Bendan Murdock as an antidote to the lack of finding all the best nutrients, vitamins and essential oils in one place. We usually wouldn’t be advocates of someone not getting what they want but if this weren’t the case, he would never have created anatomé, which means we would never have anatomé.
You see, once you step into the oasis of calm that is the Shoreditch store, you’ll find everything you need from the very best essential oils and healthy treats. Think concept store part café.
Spend time with the extremely knowledgeable nutritionists behind the counter who will advise you on tonnes of issues.
The best thing I’ve found so far is the Essential oil, I’m currently using Balance + Stability which blends 24 botanical oils (there’s Pettigrain Paraguay which has reviving qualities and Geranium Bourbon which boosts emotional wellness) to ground and support the body whilst maintaining physical energy levels.
One of the optical industry’s best kept secrets, Alexis Amor counts Poppy Delevingne and Jodi Whittaker as fans.
We’re seriously into the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC debut eyewear from Raf Simons, (their global head quarters are at 205 W 39 Street in NYC, incase you were wondering). There are two further collections, CALVIN KLEIN and CALVIN KLEIN JEANS, which focus on elevated RTW accessories and include denim inspired design details respectively.
Because it would be rude not to.
We’ve seen a few subscription services lately, but when we heard about Ordo, we knew we would love it. The starter pack is £30 which includes a stylish toothbrush, travel cap, 80ml whitening & sensitive toothpaste, 25ml travel toothpaste, a portable stand plus an AAA battery (yeah, literally everything). Once you’ve run out you can opt for the refill packs (£10), which last for 2 months.

With celebrity fans like Jourdan Dunn, Alexa Chung and Alicia Vikander, SKIIM is the latest brand everyone is talking about. This SS18 things were inspired by icons of the 60s and 70s so think leathers and suedes and everything is pretty divine tbh. *Adds to shopping bag*

A self styled lifestyle brand with an unyielding focus on both quality and style (designed in the UK, handcrafted in Italy), even if you don’t have a pet, the Instagram-ready brand imagery on site will suck you in.
