Take mum for a day out
If you like your clothes stores to offer more than just rails of apparel, Aida is the Shoreditch outlet for you. Marketing itself as a neighbourhood hangout, it invites you to pull up a flea-market pew in its in-store café. Those just interested in clothes won’t be disappointed either: Aida is bursting at the seams with chic indie labels, from Minimum for girls to Knowledge Cotton for boys. It also covers the gamut of wardrobe needs, with T-shirts and beachwear among city-friendly daywear and occasion pieces. The merchandising (clothes spilling artily out of Scandi furniture and super-sleek industrial design) gives the place an exclusive boutique air, but prices are varied: ladies can bag a dress for £75, or splash out on one for £255, while gents can go for a basic shirt for £45, or go all out on a sharp, off-the-rack blazer.
