Hostem, London, where I bought an Ann Demeulemeester pullover for myself

LONDON: London is the perfect town for men’s clothing. If you do not have an appointment with your tailor on Savile Road, have a look at a variety of new and unique menswear stores with a special atmosphere which also appeal to women. I am inspired by the presentation, the decor and of course the items for sale. Start with Hostem, on Redchurch Street; as I step through the doors, I feel an immediate sense of something more informed, of something executed with a little more élan, as a new men’s establishment in the heart of London’s East End. This enclave on Shoreditch’s Redchurch Street, is quietly assured and unique to the last.

MY FAVORITE GENTLEMEN’S SHOPS:

  • Goodhood store, 41 Cornet Street
  • Couverture & The Garbstore, 188 Kensington Park Road
  • Trunk Clothiers, 8 Chiltern Street
  • Spencer Hart, 62-64 Brook Street
  • Start Tailoring, 40 Revington Street

IRMA

brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.

WHERE IS IRMA NOW?

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
