When I was in London late last year, I only had one place that needed to be urgently crossed off my ‘places to visit list’ and that was to visit the LN-CC showroom. I had seen so many images of it’s infamous ‘hallway’ and decided that I needed to make the trek there to see it in person.
As LN-CC is an appointment-only store, I had to schedule a visit prior to leaving Sydney. Originally, I had scheduled it for the day of my arrival but quickly realised that jet lag and shopping would make for a terrible combination.
Instead, I ended up visiting on the 3rd day of my trip. Since I was staying in East London, the store actually ended up only being a couple of stations away.
I was absolutely mesmerised by the interior – in an area that looked quite dingy and rough on the outside, the store – by contrast, had the most amazing fitout. Don’t even get me started on the collection of clothes …. seeing Jil Sander, Balenciaga and Ann D all in the one store is so rare in Sydney so I pretty much went crazy on my shopping.
I spent 10 hours at Heathrow airport because the morning flight to Singapore had no availability. I’m pretty used to waiting at airports now as it kind of comes with being a standby passenger so you really learn how to kill time hour by hour.
However, one thing i really can’t stand are airports that don’t provide free public wi-fi. I don’t know how a big airport such as Heathrow wouldn’t have any shop that offered free public wi-fi yet my tiny, isolated airport in the south of Germany had it throughout the airport?

It’s funny what you find in toilets.
Whilst 2ManyDj’s mixed in the introduction of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ as the final song, confetti exploded all over the crowd. An amazing moment.
