Selfridges has partnered with London Craft Week to launch the RESELFRIDGES pop-up event, focusing on creativity, craftsmanship, and the importance of repurposing, reusing, and repairing unwanted items and waste materials.

The event is set to take place from 13 to 19 May and will be hosted in the new permanent RESELFRIDGES space within the Accessories Hall of the Selfridges store on Oxford Street. This setting will allow customers to explore a curated selection of unique pieces that incorporate innovative craft techniques and new approaches to sustainable making.

The pop-up’s offerings include fine jewellery, accessories, homeware, and contemporary designs, all crafted from repurposed materials such as unwanted garments or waste materials. These items will be presented alongside RESELFRIDGES’ collection of secondhand accessories, reinforcing the theme of sustainability.

Highlights from the pop-up feature the work of artist Celia Pym, who has collaborated with the Waste Yarn Project to create blankets that explore themes of damage and repair in textiles. Additionally, Anabela Chan showcases fine jewellery made from lab-grown stones and recycled aluminium cans, highlighting innovative material use.

The pop-up also includes creations by graduates of the Chanel and King’s Foundation Metiers d’Art Fellowship, who have used their specialised skills in embroidery and embellishment to produce unique designs on upcycled Turnbull & Asser shirts. Moreover, visitors will find homeware and design pieces from Blast Studio, which combines nature and technology to repurpose urban waste into practical artefacts and architectural elements.

Running concurrently with the activities of London Craft Week, this pop-up provides insight into the future of sustainable design and the role of craftsmanship in rethinking material use. Selfridges and London Craft Week aim to encourage both consumers and creators to consider new perspectives on the lifecycle of products and their materials.
