Opening Ceremony London is OC’s first European outpost. Opened in October 2012, the year of Opening Ceremony’s ten-year anniversary, the store is located in Covent Garden, just down the street from the OC pop-up shop launched in July 2012 to coincide with the city's summer Olympic Games.
The spacious shop floor stocks Opening Ceremony brands from around the world. Cult US favorites like Patrik Ervell, Proenza Schouler, and Opening Ceremony’s own men’s and women’s lines sit side-by-side next to British labels, as well as brands from Korea, OC’s featured country of 2012.
Representing the full spectrum of the Opening Ceremony world, the store is also host to Tinker
, a furniture-based art installation created by British designer Faye Toogood and commissioned specially for the space. In addition, visitors can browse a custom Claire de Rouen bookshop-in-shop curated by the team at the famous bookstore. In a fitting fusion of fashion and art, OC London opened with a joint celebration, feting London’s annual Frieze Art Fair.
