Ohh Deer Pop-Up Shop at Wolf & Badger: Review

There are plenty of things you could say about an arty pop-up shop complete with workshops on everything from comics to ceramics, but 'oh dear' is not one of them.

Written by Jessica Cook

Ohh Deer Pop-Up

The only thing I know about Mayfair is that it's a pretty good property to buy if you're playing Monopoly. In reality, this pretty 'n' posh street is filled with people wearing suits standing outside clubs in the afternoon sun and, as far as I can tell, looking (or at least trying to look) as though they make lots and lots of dough. The cash kind, not the squishy kind.

It is strange but sort of perfect that the latest Ohh Deer Pop-Up is on Dover Street. As I head to the launch I notice that skinny jeans, hipster glasses, tattoos and dyed hair are dotted amongst the briefcases and Oxford shirts, as people make their way to the opening of this creative hubs latest temporary shop. These arty folks are a stark contrast to the suited up worker bees hanging out for cocktails after a hard day in the office.
