BEYOND NOW

06 September 2021

Shake up the way you shop! 

Join us from Wednesday, the 15th September as we shine a light on how our brands are shaking up their offering to help give you more sustainable shopping choices. 

Throughout the month of September, as part of our BEYOND NOW activity, we’re inviting you to  enjoy a host of in store experiences, services and products all centered around how we can shop better together.  Discover the best and brightest examples of sustainable innovation taking place across the fashion industry from your favourite stores –  from upcycling stations, inspiring workshops and new conscious collection drops! We will have something for everyone; whether it be sustainable customisation at Nike Town, or natural wine tasting with John Lewis & Partners.  We are dedicated to highlighting how our brands are evolving their offering to provide more sustainable shopping choices.   

What’s more we are really excited to announce that we have partnered with esteemed author and presenter Candice Brathwaite on our first ever destination wide Edit, which features a 50 piece capsule collection using products from the responsible and conscious collections of the participating Oxford Street brands.  To inspire our shoppers and show the versatility of the responsible collections, Candice has curated her edit into ten key looks, all products of which will be shoppable in our store from 15 September!
