It’s been open just over a year but this east London retail concept has attracted the attention of fashion editors and edgy fashionistas alike.
The brainchild of former Oki-ni creative director and Harrods buyer John Skelton and DJ Dan Mitchell of music collective Bad Passion, the appointment-only store, tucked away in Dalston, mixes established, premium brands including Jil Sander and Rick Owens with quirky, exciting pieces from upcoming talent such as Japanese brand Unused.
Seven concept rooms across the 6,000 sq ft space also house music, books and art. The owners describe it as “essentially a platform for you to experience and engage with”.
