Couverture & The Garbstore
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Husband and wife team Emily Dyson and Ian Paley opened Couverture & The Garbstore in March 2008; Emily’s Couverture shop was previously housed in Chelsea, while the Garbstore was a wholesale operation with a cult international fanbase. Upstairs in this fabulously renovated townhouse Couverture stocks clothes, accessories, jewellery, homewares, furniture and the odd vintage knick-knack.
Garbstore, on the lower level, is the first stand-alone shop stocking Paley’s vintage-inspired label for men; every item is made using old-school techniques from the 1940s and ’50s (some of the garments, for instance, feature three-hole buttons that have to be hand-sewn on to the item). The shop also stocks footwear from Pistolero, womenswear from Humanoid and sweatshirts from Blue Blue Japan. Plus both shops stock exclusive label collaborations, such as the run of Garbstore X Reebok trainers.
