A visit to Lucy in Disguise

27 Sep

Lucy in Disguise is a vintage store owned by famed Lily Allen and her younger sister. First of all can I just mention how STRIKINGLY COOL their shop front is. You can literally spot the gold glitter a mile away!

Walking into the store I was surprised with how organized the store looked. It didn’t have that typical London vintage store feel to it – nor smell at that matter. I started going thru the clothes and quickly realized, this isn’t your everyday vintage store – this is high-fashion-couture vintage! HELLO! CHANEL. DIOR. YVES SAINT LAURENT.  In between my gasps I managed to speak with the store manager who basically told me that Lilly Allen and her good friend Karl Lagerfeld (oooh laa laa) travel the world to scout for these pieces from different collectors. And because of how rare the pieces are, some are on a rental only basis.
