There's A Range Of Fancy London Underground Accessories At Selfridges

By Holly Brockwell on at

London Underground merch is all the rage lately. We've had trainers, more trainers, and now a whole range of snooty accessories at Selfridges.

Spotted by prolific London blogger IanVisits, the 'collectables' are themed to different tube lines, and like the Adidas trainers that were also tube-line specific, they're ridiculously subtle.

The Central and Bakerloo shoes, obviously. 

We said it then and we'll say it again now: if you're going to go to all the effort of designing something to celebrate a particular tube line, it has to be recognisable that that's what you've done. On some of these products, it is, but some are way too subtle.

We thought this was a toilet brush at first, but it's a £13 Piccadilly Line luggage tag apparently:

Similarly, the plain-colour Oyster wallets are very classy but they don't look official, which makes it kind of pointless to spend £18 on one. The tube roundel is there, but it's so easy to miss that this could just be any old red wallet.

That logo is going to be pretty damn tiny in the hand. It just looks like a big red square. But maybe that's what they were going for, who knows.

Other merch on offer includes 6 pencils for £8:

Some rather lovely notebooks, £8 for a set of three:

Bone china mugs for £11:

A coin purse that costs £14 and therefore doesn't leave you any coins to put in it:

And finally, a much cheaper way to get a blue passport than Brexit:

Yours for £13 and your sovereignty.

The full collection is available online at Selfridges now.
