Harry Gordon Selfridge’s dream was to open a store where “everyone is welcome.” So back in 1906, he travelled from Chicago to London and did just that when Selfridges & Co opened on Oxford Street in 1909. With live music and displays, famous window displays unlike no other and even championing women’s rights and creating the first toilets for woman, Selfridges changed way we all shop.BUY NOW
Back in 2005, Selfridge banned all fur products and now it supports up-and-coming designers as well as causes such as Project Ocean, a global awareness campaign for marine conservation. With women’s and menswear, home and tech, beauty, bags and shoes, food, jewellery and watches, the department store lives up to what Mr Selfridge intended over 100 years ago.

“With instantly recognisable yellow shopping bags, everyone’s heard of Selfridges & Co, the store was even brought to our televisions in 2013. We currently have our eye on the adorable kid’s Christmas decorations.”
