Just got back from another trip to the inspiring city of London. Yes we love this city very much, and one of the reasons is that you just keep discovering new cool places, inspiring people, sustainable shopping and new lovely ethical labels all the time. Here are some more shopping tips!
Broadway market and 69B
Make sure to visit Broadway market in Hackney on saturday morning. Lots of delicious coffees,cakes and more deliciousness here but also vintage and the new cool store with sustainable fashion labels 69B. In 69B you will find some of our favorite labels such as Camilla Norrback and Monkee Genes, but the owner of the store also has her own line and other unique and upcoming ethical fashion brands are stocked in this stylish store at Broadway market.
When you walk around the area of Broadway market you will find vintage and designer markets all around. Every single one of them has a good vibe and there is always delicious coffees and bites available.
When you want to chill out a bit you can bring along your take away coffee and settle down in London fields, the big park at the end of Broadway market and watch the good looking people striking down in the green fields.
Another great store is the 123 store , which is at the corner of Bethnal Green road and Brick lane. This store is run by brother and sister Ross and Michelle they draw on over 30 years family experience in textiles recycling, following in the footsteps of their father and grandfather. Utilising a unique archive of vintage fabrics collected at the recycling HQ in East London, 123 brings these unloved materials back to life. Everything that goes into a 123 piece is local and sustainable. All garments are made from clothes and fabrics that would end up in landfill if it weren’t for the talents of our dedicated design team. Every garment by 123 is unique, expertly made in London and a delight to wear. 123 offers other unique pieces from various other deisgners of the moment.. all made in london…all chosen by 123. One of the labels is our favorite London based label Neurotica! Go and have look when you stroll down Brick Lane and visit the Sunday Up market to score the best vintage pieces anyway.
