MK2UK Shoreditch

We have recently started stocking our scarf collection in MK2UK.  This little store in Redchurch Street is a great place to shop for emerging UK and international designers.  As well as clothing you can find a wonderfully curated selection of fashion accessories, and jewellery.

Here are some of my other favourite places in the area.  You will be able to tell my essentials in life – accessories, coffee, chocolate, and the odd pint and pizza!!

Ally Capellino

9 Calvert Avenue, E2 7JP
British Designer making classic, beautiful and utilitarian bags.  Love their SS15 lookbook!

Allpress Espresso

58 Redchurch Street, E2 7DP
Great coffee and brunch here! (An Aussie said this was an Australian Café - typical!).  From New Zealand originally.  For the Antipodean missing a full flavoured and velvety flat white.  Mmmm….

Dark Sugars Chocolate

141 Brick Lane, E1 6SB
Funky music, unpretentious staff, and delicious hand made chocolate.  Apricot Brandy is beyond words!

Story Deli

123 Bethnal Green Road (around the corner), E2 7DG
Escape the crowds on Brick Lane and head to this small intimate deli for pizzas with wafer-thin bases and super fresh toppings.

Right about now my partner will have lost interest in “discovering” Shoreditch again and want to relax with a pint.  Head to the Well and Bucket (143 Bethnal Green Road, E2 7DG) for a pint of English lager or cider.
