The Girl Can't Help It
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Named after the Jayne Mansfield film, the Girl Can’t Help It is classic Hollywood territory, personified by co-owner Sparkle Moore, an exuberant platinum maned New Yorker who, with partner, Cad Van Swankster, sources most of her stock from the US. Always in stock are classic 1940s suits and 1950s circle skirts, decorated with everything from kitsch kittens to Mexican-style patterns.
You can achieve the total look here, right down to the lingerie and glam accessories. Van Swankster presides over the suave menswear – Hawaiian shirts, gabardine jackets, slick 1940s and ’50s suits, pin-up ties and camp accessories, such as tiki-themed bar glasses.
