Cool store alert: Just opened in Camden, London, Guts for Garters is a concept shop that stocks artists' and designers' merchandise based on changing themes throughout the year. Right now the theme is "The Royal We," and products in store include subversive tableware like this, above, as well as homewares and apparel. "We are functioning a bit like a gallery in that we are going to work under these very specific themes," co-owner Rachel Chudley told Dazed Digital. "There will be three different themes a year and we are opening with ‘The Royal We’. We have split up the theme in to four different sections: the public, the private, the anti-Royal and the pro-Royal. It will be a mixture of old and new and we have collected artists from a really broad scope." Check out more of the merch here at Dazed.
