Your Guide to Local Fashion and Lifestyle Stores for Your Next Shopping Fix

Your Guide to Local Fashion and Lifestyle Stores for Your Next Shopping Fix

Local brands, international labels and novelty finds in one shared space

 

 

Just when we think heading out to do our shopping is as good (or predictable) as it’s ever going to get, these local stores flip the script to keep us on our toes. The idea now is to make shopping in-store exciting again and let shoppers nab an experience that, would you imagine that, no amount of convenient online shopping could replace.

 

The promise of specialty stores like new-shop-on-the-block Frankie & Friends and the other fashion and lifestyle stores mentioned in this roundup lies in a number of things: the inclusion of international brands you won’t find anywhere else, the curation of local labels you never knew existed but you now don’t ever want to live without or, perhaps, it’s the cool and unusual in-store gimmicks that make you want to shop for a bit…and stay a while longer.

 

Ahead, fashion and lifestyle stores that have more up their sleeves than mere merchandise. (You’ll have to head over to see for yourselves.)
