Fleeting fun is happening in London in form of Pop-Ups, whether you’re into food, fashion, or the arts, there’s something for everyone…but not for long!  Here’s the Luxury Travel Advisor tip off to what’s on.

L’Eden by Perrier-Jouet, September 23 - 25

Imagine a place where champagne grows on trees!  It’s a reality here in London:  spanning the duration of London Fashion Week and London Design Festival, L’Eden by Perrier-Jouët celebrates the creative effervescence of two of the biggest cultural weeks, with an interactive installation by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance (renown French architect and interior designer) and the world’s first bio-responsive garden by Bompas & Parr (the English culinary duo that invented alcoholic clouds and Jello sculpture).  Yes, think: champagne bottles you pick off the vine, plants that mimic movement, a hidden Eden “tasting cellar,” plus talks, master classes and a limited edition champers shop.
