One of my favourite shops to browse when I am in London is & Other Stories. Owned by the Swedish H&M group, they own a number of brands including COS, which I also love. Currently there are just 3 stores in London, but the good news is that you can order from them online.
The brand is all about fashion, with particular focus on quality and design details as well as personal expression and styling. Like its sister COS the lines can be quite blunt and masculine, but it gives an interesting diversity to other high street stores. They have lots of great affordable and interesting accessories for when you just need a little statement something.
They recently collaborated with Rodarte the American luxury label brand known for its artistic mixture of high couture, modern femininity, and California influences. The result: lots of sumptuous crushed velvet, silk, sequins, patchwork suede.
My selection from the store:
Lippy Statement Necklace – £55
Pink Suede Shoulder Bag – £105
