Lucy in Disguise

On the way to menswear designer James Small's fashion week party last night, I passed by Lucy in Disguise, the vintage buy or hire shop set up by Lily Allen and her sister Sarah Owen.

I was drawn in by the spangly shelves filled with vintage fare from the 1920s right up to pieces from the 1990s. The mix of eras results in beaded charleston dresses and drop waist gowns sitting prettily alongside 90s puffa patchwork bombers and powerful Escada blazers, fit for any alpha female.

The store could do with more shoes but that's because I'm a sucker for a pre-worn pair of 60s courts.

The swing tags have both the hire and for sale price on so you can pick whether to buy or borrow. The hire period is a standard two days, but you can extend it if you fall in love.

There's a little chill out area where blokes can kick back on a couch and flick through a vintage Vogue or two while lady friends stock up in this Aladdin's cave of one-off finds.
