Darkroom is not somewhere you go to develop 35mm film. It is in fact a concept store, which opened at the start of 2010, adding further credence to Lamb’s Conduit Street’s claim to being one of London’s most intriguing shopping destinations. The shop is quite literally dark (the walls and lampshades black), creating a blank canvas for the carefully chosen selection of unisex fashion, accessories and interiors items on sale. Designer pieces include Lizzy Disney leather bags, Hay geometric mirrors and Stitchwallah fabrics. The space doubles up as a gallery, with displays intermingling with a range of sculptural jewellery by Eleanor Bolton, By Boe and Henriette Lofstrom. Each piece begs the question – do I wear it or hang it on the wall?
