This is the contemporary branch of the trio of Hackney vintage stores run by Hoana Poland (see Strut and Stroll, North London), which opened in late 2011. This is where Poland places her most fashion-forward finds. The store is non-vintage in its appearance; stock is merchandised sparingly, and the decor is icily modern. You ll find special garments by the likes of Comme des Garcons, Margiela, Moschino and Yohji Yamamoto here (priced appropriately, with designer jackets selling for £250). Much like its sister branches, Strut is special in that it crowd sources a lot of its product on Sundays and Mondays you can bring your own quality cast-offs into store. If they pass muster, you ll be given about a third of their re-sale value for them.
