Tea Time at the New Ted Baker

Ted Baker London will open its first Washington store at Bellevue Square on March 4. And its interior design might have you craving a cup of earl gray tea. The store will be decorated like a British “high tea” party. According to a Ted Baker spokesperson, the theme is in part inspired by the local area’s love of coffee. The color pallet includes pastel pink, blue, and mint. Oversized white doily decals will be stamped around the store along with bespoke tea tin-printed wallpaper in the fitting rooms. The light fixtures will be made out of tiered cake-stands and “knitted cakes and sandwiches” will be on display in wooden trays.

The new store will launch with the brand’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection. On opening weekend there will be gifts and giveaways. But here’s the real treat. Ted Baker sells excellent clothes for the office. They take classic pieces and put their own spin on them.

If you’re a man on the hunt for alternative, cotton button ups, be sure to pop into Ted Baker. They have simple patterns that are different but not overly flashy. And if you dare to dabble in floral prints this would be the place to do it. They also sell suits, blazers and all the regular business wear. Plus, their bags are reasonably priced and come in different colors in addition to brown and black.

Simplicity and unique fabrics are the name of the game for womenswear. Almost all Ted Baker dresses are office appropriate. Cuts are classic but colors and prints are in a league all their own.  This floral tunic is stunning. They also have suits for women. This jeweled bomber jacket is a perfect example of a classic design transformed.

So, is it time for tea?
