Back in the Game

How we have missed you, you beautiful people. We are absolutely beyond delighted and very, very thrilled to be reopening the shop on Wednesday 2 December. While the packing elves have been busy with the craziness of online orders, the VM elves have been busy with getting the shop up and together for your arrival, just in time for all your Christmas shopping. Believe us when we say we are awash with all the good stuff.

How Were Looking

It has been a world of packing chips, bubble wrap and cardboard boxes since we last saw you at the beginning of November. The First Floor, usually a haven of calm and immaculate womenswear, was repurposed as our despatch depot but the digital team have now moved back to their eyrie in the attic. The front counter, once a scene of cheer and wrap and personal transactions, was transformed into Robs courier command station but he has now moved back to his Basement lair. And so life at The Hambledon returns to some semblance of normality, for which we are inordinately grateful.


The Window

How better to mark the festive season than a teetering pile of parcels and presents? Weve all been busy honing our wrapping skills to build these crazy towers which are absolutely all about colour and joy.

The Christmas Shop

Were a little bit old fashioned department store (and where better than B.Altman from the marvellous The Marvellous Mrs Maisel). Were quite a lot classic Cecil Beaton in all his My Fair Lady glory (Audrey Hepburn in her monochrome stripes for the Ascot scene might have inspired a tablecloth). Were something of a greengrocers with our plentiful fresh produce and repurposed supermarket carousel. And theres always a touch of the fun fair with our crazy, vinyl topped tables and loops of colourful satin ribbons. In essence the theme for this time of year is anything goes, as long as its joyous and fun and beautiful or just plain silly.

The Gift Tables

Weve laid up the tables to make your present shopping super simple. Gifts for him and her and diminutive hims and hers. Riffing on the Cecil Beaton-esqu black and white stripey theme, there are bowls and bowls and trays and platters of perfect presents. Shop the tables and shelves in Homeware, Menswear, Beauty and Grooming and Womenswear. The Kids department is groaning under the weight of brilliant stocking fillers, toys and books.

The Garland

It just wouldnt be Christmas without our traditional shop front garland. Papa Mike and Granny Wendy have been tramping the woods and hills of Dorset to gather the wherewithal for our fresh greenery swag. Sadly this year they wont be doing their annual PA and installation (were keeping these precious beauties safe) but the store team will attempt to match their exacting standards up the ladder.

The Fashion

On the First Floor new Spring 2021 is beginning to be delivered. Its looking very, very lovely, and Lord knows, were ready for a new year and a new start and new things. Check out Stine Goya for some sparkly Christmas treats (super nice) and new Ganni is deliciously Ganni-ish and well worth a visit. And fingers, and everything else, crossed. Bellerose will be on its merry way very shortly. In the Basement New Yorks finest, Adsum, is in the building. Colorful Standard are solving your gifting dilemmas with new beanies and boxers. And Rototo socks to the rescue as ever.
