Introducing the app that lets you flick through the stock of London’s best boutiques and stores
Launching tonight at Boxpark, Shoreditch, We Like Shopping is switching up the way you shop little-known labels. Scoping out hard-to-find boutiques in London, starting with the East End, WLS matches up a little black book of the best fashion and design stores with mapping technology into one neat app. Scouting for that one-of-a-kind piece got a whole lot simpler - scroll products, compile shopping lists and see exactly where to find them from your iPhone. Matching the know-how of online shopping with the authentic experience of boutique visits, the makers hope to give a leg-up to independent stores and pull shoppers away from the high street.
Over 30 cult destinations feature, including Start, YMC, Goodhood, Lik + Neon and The Child of Jago – swing by tonight to see a curation of select pieces and try the technology for yourself. To celebrate, Dazed fashion team here select their top finds – from co-operative art gallery and fashion showroom 39-39 on Dalston’s Kingland Road; mid-century specialists House of Vintage just off Brick Lane, Shoreditch; choice menswear specialist Number Six. Wandering the streets will no longer be necessary - click here to download now.
The pop-up shop runs from Friday 2nd August until Sunday 4th August, 11 am-7 pm on Friday and Saturday, 12 pm-6 pm on Sunday at Unit 56, Boxpark.
