Comme des Garcons is no stranger to the perfume business and has been knocking out great scents year after year at a good clip. Its new fragrance, Floriental, comes from the idea of reimagining a flower that has no scent (in this case, the Cistus flower). It also redefines traditional notions of perfume-making with no definite top, middle, or base scent notes.
Eizenstein is a new multi-brand boutique nestled in the heart of Shoreditch. Split over two floors, the design of the store draws its inspiration from Russian Constructivism.

Their selection encompasses jewellery, accessories, fragrances and a range of womenswear and menswear featuring designers such as forme d’expression, Julius, Uma Wang, DRKSHDW, Alexander Plokhov, LAYER 0 and others.
