There's a lot to like about Kensal Rise; cosy pubs, curious
antique shops and London's prettiest florists - Scarlett &
Violet. But for locals been there's one thing missing - a
great women's clothes shop .
But as of this week - it has arrived! The shop's called
Lark and is the creation of former model Phoebe Pring and Vogue
writer Lucy Olivier.
Both are local girls who've made the dream shop stuffed with
clothes for freelancers, yummy-mummies or
need-to-change-after-work-folk. And at sensible prices, "From
£30 to £300" says Lucy Olivier plucking out great LNA basic tees
and track pants, the perk-up-a-grey-day Wildfox rainbow sweater and
just-smart-enough boots by Beau Coops.
The shop is peppered with fashion books, pants by Hanky Panky
and pieces found on the owners' travels. But look out
especially for the rail at the back - stuffed with vintage finds
and local stylists cast-offs - there are glorious treasures to be
had (I spotted a YSL velvet tunic and great sequin pencil
This is a great shop for the area and everything's available
online for those non-Kensal folk. Good stuff to lark about
