In North London, style is a pretty big deal. You’ll often see ladies who lunch dipping in and out of North London Boutiques or opening their doors to a huge delivery from an online order.
Here at North London Calling we’re huge fans of simple chic pieces, ones that are timeless and elegant and can be worn over and over. We don’t mind splashing out on these pieces especially when we know they’re fantastic quality and super stylish.
Wild Swans, based on Upper Street in North London’s Islington sell Scandinavian Fashion that’s both minimal and with a hint of vintage. The brands sold are 95% Scandinavian. Coming from the fairytale ‘The Wild Swans’, by Hans Christian Andersen, the store brings you a range of designers as well as customers – each “beautiful, strong, gracious birds with a bit of an edge”.
