Juliet Da Silva and partner Ochuko Ojiro are a couple stuck in the past – in a good way. Da Silva scours Italian markets and stores for fashion from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, and showcases them in the fashion branch of Pelicans and Parrots. A few doors up, Ojiro sells stylish vintage furniture and ornaments, as well as the odd bit of clothing, from Pelicans and Parrots Black, the homewares outpost. Both stores are beautifully turned out, with neatly presented stock, stylish art deco fixtures, and a selection of product bought with the Dalston hipster demographic in mind – think silk blouses, £30, and Barbour jackets, £80. Not cheap, but good value.
