After at least two years of building work and a cost of Â£ 40 million ($ 70 million) he new (rebuilt) Asprey store was opened this week. http://www.asprey.com It is a triumph, designed by Sir Norman Foster. The store is basically a collection of Georgian town houses and a once covered up courtyard has been opened up and has become a huge atrium covered with a glass roof. At present Asprey's London store must be the most luxurious shopping experience in the world. It is essentially a gift shop, just the most exclusive (and most expensive) gifts you can think of. Anybody visiting London ought to put it high on his or her list of "must sees". Even if you don't spend any money, go and "spend a penny" (it's actually free), visit the rest room, it's out of this world.
