Over at The Imagine Shop on the ground floor, you will find a range of pioneering products at the forefront of modern technology and design. From everything to 3D Printers, a virtual watch store, GPS shoes and the most expensive ever item sold at Selfridges:  a yacht shoppable via augmented reality at a whopping £300 million.


With our offices located directly opposite Selfridges itself, we had to pay them a visit to see for ourselves what they had to offer. And we weren’t disappointed. Below are a few of our faves:
