Self Discoveries: five things you don’t want to miss at Selfridges this week

Welcome to Self Discoveries – our round-up of extraordinary happenings across Selfridges’ four stores. From an exciting swimwear collaboration between Virgil Abloh and Vilebrequin across all four stores to sparkling wine with a view at Selfridges London, here are the top five things not to miss at Selfridges.

Off-white c/o Virgil Abloh x Vilebrequin in all stores and online

Eek, it’s here: the hotly anticipated collaboration between Virgil Abloh – he of Louis Vuitton and Off-White fame – and swim shorts extraordinaire Vilebrequin. With five different styles of swim shorts to choose from, this collection caters for lovers of print, colour and logos – that’s our attention captured then. Effortlessly cool yet still practical (well, what more would you want from a pair of swim shorts?), these styles are guaranteed to make your holiday feel that little bit more exclusive. Cue the Insta snaps.

Sparkling wine with a view at The Nyetimber Manor Terrace, Selfridges London

English sparkling wine? Tick. View of London to rival any high rise? Tick. Sumptuous food to boot? A lip-smacking tick. It wouldn’t be us unless we provided the summer with its best wine terrace now, would it? Open now until 29 June, The Nyetimber Manor Terrace – an extension of our rooftop restaurant Alto San Carlo – provides the perfect setting to sample England’s finest wine while watching the sunset over the city. Pair your bottle of Classic Cuvée with rock oysters and grilled Mediterranean prawns. Here’s looking at you London.

“One drop can make a rainbow” Virgil Abloh x Evian pop-up at Selfridges London

Discover the collaboration in store in the Men’s Designer Street Room on 1.
