I have fallen in love. With a store. Based abroad. Who doesn't ship to the United States. DAMMIT. Star-crossed fashion lovers. I came across & Other Stories in last May while I was visiting London and I was immediately taken. If Zara and COS came together to create an affordable and insanely cool line, & Other Stories would be it.
Their physical store is amazing. Their online shop has photography that is lovely but doesn't quite showcase how amazing the products are. Zara falls victim to this on the regular and it's a shame to see it here. But if you get yourself into a shop, be prepared to spend hours there. Their designs are couture level type s**t. Their fabrics and construction are stunning. And their prices are beyond reasonable.
The most excellent of all the excellent news is that this place has been started by the brainiacs being H&M and...you ready for it...THEY ARE OPENING A SHOP IN NYC THIS YEAR. Thank you, Fashion Gods, for looking down on me with this one. You are truly great and powerful.
Anyway, browse the site and, if you have the chance, get yourself into one of their stores...it's worth the price of the airline ticket, straight up.
