To celebrate the launch of the Girls Fall 2010 collection hitting stores, Vans will be touring the country to spread the word of their latest collection! Select retailers have been chosen for this event in the likes of London, Liverpool, leeds and Manchester. The Vans ‘Off the Rail Tour’ have called upon a London stylist to be on hand in each city along with make-up demos, (fake) tattoo artists and lots of cupcakes and drinks to keep you fed and watered…..oh and did I mention the Vans goodie bags? For the London leg of the tour, the stylist will be hitting the streets to select a few lucky people to style an outfit in store with a chance to win an exclusive Vans shopping spree, so make sure you’re at Carnaby Street on the June 25th!

Its official, Kid Robot are finally opening a store in London. They have decided to cross the Atlantic and set up shop in Covent Garden’s Earlham Street…just as every other shop in the area is closing down! (sad times). I’ll have to admit I can’t see myself in any of the apparel, but my vinyl toy collection may see some new additions…
