Fashion Compass: From Japan to UK

Stylish neighborhoods, alternative shops, luxury boutiques and even vintage garments in different iconic fashion destinations.

Fashion allows us to express ourselves. Through the clothes we can also say who we are, what we like, what we believe in, etc. In addition to the world trends that we find in the most recurring sideboards, there are also proposals for those looking for a more unique look.
