Dalston Department Store

We are living in the most vibrant area in the country, one  that resonates with creativity and ingenuity.  A walk down Stoke Newington High Street through Dalston to Haggerston is now punctuated with “oooh, another new restaurant!”, “well, just look at that art gallery!”.  Having lived in the neighbourhood for almost 20 years, I am well versed in the long stretch that is the A10.  The frenzied nights in Hoxton and Shoreditch felt much further away than they do now since those wonderful creative folk have been joining up the dots so that the route is one of discovery and surprise.

The latest concept to pop up that shouts out “surprise” and “discovery” is the Dalston Department Store selling a hand-picked selection of wares.  Housed in a warehouse just off the beaten track it has the vibe of  Walter in Antwerp or, dare I say it, the potential to become what Corso Como is to Milan and the fashion community.

The first few pieces of our own collection have just arrived and there couldn’t be a finer place in town to launch it.  “Cerys”, affectionately named after my niece,  is a capacious tweed swing back coat with a playful mix of genuine vintage buttons and bright satin linings.  Its intricate patterned weave is reminiscent of Welsh tweed and already is being heralded as the coat of the season.  Our colourful spin on the iconic desert boot is a rather cheeky little number, trimmed with a fringe kiltie, it has its own distinct character.

Alongside our cherry picked selection of children’s wear you will find women’s wear from the quirky and humurous Labour Of Love, sartorial style and tailoring for men from DS Dundee, 1940s to 1980s vintage from Retrove’s and highly sought after prints from This Is Rude…and more besides.

The Dalston Department Store is open for business today.  Catch it before it closes at 6pm today and make sure you sign up to their mailing list for news of the next event.
