Fashion: Toast of the town

Toast has excelled at bringing cosy country pieces and homespun cool to city folks – and now the opening of a pop-up store on Marylebone High Street means it will now be doing so right in the middle of things. The label's first central London space opens this week and will hang around for a month, selling womenswear, menswear and home ranges in a specially created and curated temporary space. toast.co.uk
