Co-founded by ex-Vogue directors Serena Hood and Lucinda Chambers, Collagerie’s Art Shop, will appear throughout the guest journey to, and within Bicester Village as a shoppable ‘pop up’ exhibition, with prints on display at the Marylebone train station Kiosk, Bicester Village train station, The Apartment, and more. There are 22 artworks available, all created by a mix of local and International female artists, with six additional prints by Kavel Rafferty, which are exclusive to Bicester Village.
