Zoë Jordan is a multi-tasker. With a background in finance, the designer was able to launch her womenswear brand in 2014 fulfilling both the creative and the business side. The year after, alongside her line of feminine, sports-inspired designs, Jordan launched KnitLab: a reinvention of knitwear basics.

The KnitLab collection is modelled by her (often famous) friends and family, who are also the inspiration behind the casual cashmere pieces with signature cut-outs. Since Jordan’s designs aren’t trend led, she focuses instead on achieving the perfect balance between practicality and style. “It's important that my collections are easy to put together, and take me through the day, whatever role I'm playing!” Jordan tells us.

With this in consideration, Jordan has decided to collaborate with The Shop at Blue Bird. “We love to work in partnership with stores,” Jordan says. “Bluebird is only a stone’s-throw from our studio.” The exclusive Zoë  Jordan pop-up shop will open in their King’s Road store in February for two months.

Monday: C Press (285 Fulham Rd, London SW10 9PZ) 

C Press does delicious drip coffee and acai bowls. I like to walk to work on a Monday and this is my treat at the end.

Tuesday: Phat Phuc (151 Sydney St, Chelsea, SW3 6NT) 

An old-school Chelsea institution! I never get bored of their chicken pho for lunch, with extra chilli! It’s particularly good in the summer as it’s a little sun trap and there is a walk-in reflexology next door which is always tempting.

Wednesday: Box clever (Lowerwood Court Car Park, Westbourne Park Road, W11 1EU) 

I box it out mid-week with Pete at Box Clever. The guys there are great, although they have started giving me the odd smack back now, not sure about that! Actually, some of them actually helped me move house last year, and built my kids’ beds, thank god for these boys! 

Thursday: Casa Cruz (A, 123 Clarendon Rd, London W11 4JG) and Fez Mangal (104 Ladbroke Grove, London W11 1PY) 

Time for a night out! I either dress up and head over to Casa Cruz for a martini, or for a more casual night I go to Fez Mangal for the best kebab in town.

Friday: Portobello Road (Portobello Road, Notting Hill, London W11 1LJ) and Lisboa (57 Golborne Rd, W10 5NR) 

And breathe. I drop the girls at school and then head up to the Portobello and Golborne Road, to check out some vintage stores and peruse the markets. I’ll probably have a quick coffee at Lisboa with friends, and grab a bunch of flowers on the way home.
