Men’s boutique of the week: A Child of the Jago

By Colin Chapman on January 27th, 2009

On a lonely stretch of Great Eastern Street more likely to be seen from a speeding cab than on a casual wander, men’s boutique A Child of the Jago has been around since July 2008.

The brainchild of no less than Vivienne Westwood, Barnzley (founder of Acupuncture and Zoltar the Magnificent) and Westwood’s son Joe Corre the shop is named after a novel set in these very environs (then a notorious slum) in the 1890s.

The gothic script and dark colours suggest something of a cross between the worst of River Island and All Saints but scrape under the surface of Heartless and you’ll find a great selection of menswear. With online boutiques being few and far between for men any new etailer is a bonus for mankind, and what’s more they’re soon opening a store in Mayfair in addition to their Essex boutique.

Obviously Heartless are never going to veer completely off from their Essex roots, -and why would they?- but don’t let that stop you as the site is well worth a visit.

The shop itself is pretty stylish, combining traditional wood cabinets with industrial shelving and neon lighting.

Visit Catwalk Queen for the sleb images of Henry Holland and Brix Smith and see after the jump for some pictures of the store.

Philip Start’s Fashion Week diary

By Isabelle on January 23rd, 2008

Philip Start has been in Paris at the menswear shows looking for new pieces for his London Boutique Start. He caught up with us and gave us the lowdown from the last few days:

Tranoï a small French retailer, had the best brands that didn’t have showrooms and some of the bigger names included Juun-J, U-ni-ty and Tillmann Lauterbach.

Philip went to the Dior show which he said was ‘a bit retro, all black skinny jeans and nothing new’. Ever since Hedi Slimane’s departure Dior has struggled to find a new style and Kris Van Aasche’s MC Hammer trousers weren’t impressing him: ‘My suspicion is that because he
didn’t invent skinny jeans he’s trying to make a mark but I’m not interested in
it’. Philip’s celebrity companion Brian Molko apparently wasn’t too impressed by the baggy trousers either.
