This friday we went to visit Spitalfields market (the best day for fashion) spotting new designers. It’s a great place to pick up unique pieces and support local artists and designers. Set in Old Spitalfields, under cover making it perfect even went it rains- no weather issues! With loads of stalls from art to clothing to jewellery you can find some great items. It’s a little bit more costly but you expect to pay more as a lot of it’s handmade. I personally don’t mind paying more when you know you’re supporting independent designers.
Here are some of the stalls that really stood out to us!
Working with leather to create beautifully handmade minimalist accessories. We loved her roll top back pack – well designed and super safe with it’s roll top fastening. The perfect accessories to compliment any outfit. From the bright and clashing pattern to one thats head to toe chic black.
The brand sells one pack which includes 70′s inspired bang on trend round frames with 6 different lenses so you can swap and change with your mood or outfit! At a special price of £20 (just at the market £25) online they are are steal! Seen on the catwalk at Rio Fashion Week s/s 2013. A pair of sunglasses you can really rock whatever the weather or mood! they donate 10% of every sale to War child charity.
Amazing African printed garments. Ranging from the must have coat (pictured below) to simple jersey tees with printed panels! All handmade by the designer. Follow her on instagram @chanty74
Think these will be big if we get some sun that stays! Gorgeous leather sandals that come in a array of colours ( on trend matte neon are our favs!) Or if you fancy a bespoke pair pick out your leather for a unique sandal. The soles are make from tyres making them rather ethical! Loads of ways to wear them from evening to day!
If you’re hungry after all that shopping make sure to head to Square Pie for a freshly made hearty pie.
