Shopper’s Diary: School of Life in London

June 29, 2011

Located in Bloomsbury, the School of Life is an intellectual concept store established by Alain de Botton and a group of collaborators where "geek meets chic," in the words of Giles Hattersley of the London Times. On offer: a range of programs that "explore questions of fulfillment and how to lead a better life," a shop space offering books, cards, quirky and inspiring objects, plus packages for weekend adventures (including Reading Retreats with Living Architecture)." Go to The School of Life for more information.
