Hackney Shops

Shop neighborhood
18 Shacklewell Ln., Hackney
You'll find this underground, fantastical shop—which usually requires an appointment—in the far reaches of East London. The space is as sculptural as the labels: You'll find Damir Doma, Margiela, Ann Demeulester and plenty of drool-worthy Dries Van Noten. While the appointment component might seem intimidating, the service is casual and friendly. Stopping by is worth it even just to see the space (don't miss their quirky and pared-down book selection). >>Contact to arrange a visit.
Momosan Shop
79a Wilton Way, Hackney
Momosan, a teensy, whitewashed space a few doors down from Violet Cakes on the up-and-coming Wilton Way, is a collection of beautiful, useful objects owner Momoko Mizutani has found on her travels. While there is a definite Japanese bent to the look and feel of the delicate glassware, quirky ceramics, and home-y odds and ends, these are her finds from friends across the world. Ceramic mugs by LA artist Peter Shire, London-based Jochen Holz' delicate colorblock glassware, Japanese incense, and more: It's a hodge podge, but a painstakingly edited one—and at great prices—making this an ideal gifting destination.
