Hail Britannia, home of Big Ben, Pippa Middleton’s gravity-defying fanny, and cult beauty boutique Space NK!
The first two appear to be staying put, but Space NK founder Nicky Kinnaird is (bless her) continuing to spread the love stateside. She’s opening an outpost of her well-curated emporium at Brentwood Country Mart today.
Housed in a 1940s apothecary, the boutique’s interior pays homage to its predecessor (see: restored woodwork, original pharmacy ladder, vintage schoolhouse light fixtures).
Expect to find more than 60 prettifying brands, as well as a friendly staff who knows beauty like Hugh Grant knows rom coms. Mainstream and hard-to-find labels (Nars, Diptyque, Tata Harper) plus the expansive in-house line are all in the mix.
Kinnaird and her team personally vet each item. Her current faves? Eve Lom’s treatment cleanser, By Terry’s Baume de Rose, and Oribe’s dry texturizing spray.
Space cadets, the mothership has landed.
