Don’t be surprised if you see a London taxi whizz past you on your way to or from work in Abu Dhabi this month. It’s probably ferrying a limited-edition Hermes bag or rare Richard Mille watch to its new owner.

By Appointment, a luxury concierge company, has launched a private shopping service with a twist: you can now have your shopping delivered to you, or flit about yourself from mall to spa to dinner, in an official London hackney carriage, a small fleet of which have been specially flown in for the company’s intrepid clients.

By Appointment specialises in sourcing hard-to-find items and creating bespoke experiences, such as an after-hours tour of Louvre Abu Dhabi with an art expert or a grooming session with a make-up or hair stylist of your choice at your residence.

The private shopping service includes home deliveries, as well as shopping excursions with a fashion or beauty stylist. If you’re travelling to Abu Dhabi and want specific items of clothing for your visit – or, say, if an airline has lost your luggage – By Appointment can have a walk-in wardrobe ready for you, with the brands, colours and sizes of your choice, all delivered in the London cab.

The vehicle has already been spotted and images of it shared on social media.
