Designer Road Trip New!

Print is the new black - at least it is according to, which is celebrating the most frantic shopping period of the year by giving London's iconic black cabs a designer makeover.

On Monday, 26 November, the e-tailer will be sending a fleet of taxis 'wrapped' in its exclusive print by London design hothouse Meadham Kirchhoff onto the capital's roads to ferry around Christmas shoppers in style.

Not in the vicinity? Never fear. Wrapped cabs are but a small part of a broader Christmas collaboration with four creatives - illustrator Gary Card, photographer Melinda Gibson and artist Margot Bowman, along with the Meadham Kirchhoff boys - on exclusive giftwrap for the 2012 festive season. That, you can find online from the comfort of your sofa.
