This striking boutique provides a platform for an eclectic array of up-and-coming designers such as Bora Aksu, Gyunel and Lucy Choi. A good chunk of space is devoted to its extensive menswear offering, while its basement gallery is reserved for installations and pop ups. The brand’s sister store on Ledbury Street is also home to tiny, specialist labels such as pyjama brand Desmond & Dempsey and jewellers Astrid & Miyu.
