Holiday Favorites from London

As we all slowly re-emerge from the festive season with new goals and new directives, the changing of the calendar signifies also the coming of an all new fashion season. In a loose round-up of sorts, we take a tour of London and its diverse retail landscape. We spoke with the staff at a handful of retailers including Dover Street Market, Slam City, Garbstore, Goodhood and Hideout amongst others, to gather a general shop consensus on each spot’s in-store favorites of the outgoing 2009 Fall/Winter season. If you get the chance, be sure to check in and enjoy the eclectic mix that London’s scene entails.
