So this east London base for the Junky Styling clothing label is, most unfortunately, just across from the Big Chill Bar: a place where music and hope come to die which is strange because Rough Trade is just a few doors down… But anyway, that aside, Junky: recycling for the future is great.
It stocks the very best of Junky Styling’s unique collections – pieces created from the deconstruction and reconstruction of (high quality) second hand clothing – as well as some interesting jewelry, a few books and Pants for Poverty pants – good pants innit.
They have an in-store ‘wardrobe surgery’ service where customers can bring in their own clothes for transformation. Excellent. They also have the best chandelier-esque creation made up of red cable and loads of eco-friendly twisted light bulbs (which you can purchase) (the light bulbs, not the chandelier, get a grip, no one has a house that big…)
