Shoreditch has grown into a one-of-a-kind shopping destination in London, rivaling traditional clothing meccas of the West End.
From big brands to designer boutiques, you’ll find what you’re looking for or even a small piece of gratitude in an unexpected place. This list includes some of the best chic indie labels to designers echoing all things vintage and retro. All of these stores are located on Redchurch St. in Shoreditch. These stores are all very close to one another, about 550 feet total distance from Nudie Jeans to Vinti Andrews.
Since 2012, all Nudie Jeans denim is made with 100% organic cotton. Nudie designs jeans to last a lifetime, and this company believes that jeans become a part of ourselves when worn for a long time, just like a second skin. “Lagom” is the motto, or, “just the right amount.” Nudie Jeans is a way to get the balance just right.
Folk clothing is influenced by all things nature as much as trends in culture. This brand believes that how we see the world around us affects our choices in what we do; meaning, our state of mind is just as important as the individual and how we present ourselves. A clean, utilitarian design is at the forefront, with pieces that can stand the test of time. Minimum environmental impact is practiced with responsibly-sourced garments and sustainability in mind.
Modern Society works with a variety of mediums, from fashion to photography. The brand focuses on quality of material, wearability, and modern simplicity. Unisex clothing is common; designs keep both genders in mind. The label exists outside of fashion for the seasons, and you can always find something to fit your own quirky individual style.
This store was voted by Time Out as 1 of the 50 Best Boutiques in London. Designs are subtle but playful, comfortable yet timeless. There are often surprises in these pieces of clothing: pockets become belt loops, and collars change their shape. Dragana’s philosophy? Garments are a blank canvas to paint experiences, dreams, inspirations, and memories. Fabrics used are of the highest quality, with soft cottons and silks. Dragana is also very well known for its multifunctional handbags.
This London-based brand is a collaboration between Vinti Tan and Paul Andrews. Both designers are inspired by British culture but also the world music scene, creating a contemporary brand that highlights innovation and originality. Each collection is designed for the fashion-conscious individual, and garments reflect unique textures and colors. The label stands for rebellion and self-expression, redefining freedom in fashion. Garments are often recycled high-end clothing and re-constructed with detailed appliques.
