The convenience of instant luxury crystals
I love the idea of the new Moët & Chandon vending machine in Selfridges. The contraption, housed on the fourth floor of the Oxford Street store in London, contains 350 mini art-deco-inspired bottles which have been adorned with Swarovski crystals and are yours for th[e] taking if you have a spare £17.99.

Personally, I’d rather they skip the crystals and artsy-fartsy designs and simply increase the size of the bottles. What a terrific excuse for a visit to this store, either by me or anyone who can get there soon and report back. Any volunteers?
