Ingenious and accessible: Leim’s zero-hassle jumpsuits
“I don’t want to be out for drinks (in a toilet cubicle that doesn’t lock) holding my jumpsuit in one hand and the door shut with the other” is how Leim’s practical jumpsuit came into being. Henrietta Lawrence, Leim’s founder, has designed a jumpsuit that works around your body rather than the other way around. Both functional and stylish, you can go to the loo without taking the whole lot off. Game-changer.

A co-working space for parents: Cuckooz Nest
An office with creche space is the concept of Cuckooz Nest, London’s first co-working environment that allows parents to be close enough to their children to breastfeed and care for them without the distractions of working at home. Rather than shelling out for daycare and office space, Cuckooz Nest piles the two into one and facilitates you looking after your children in a child-friendly workplace. The pay-as-you-go office is based in Clerkenwell, a short walk from Farringdon station.
