& Other Stories

whenever i discover a new online shop i go through various stages of emotion. 1. i’m excited by all the beautiful clothes. 2. i’m sad that i can’t order any of them. 3. i’m relieved because my credit card sits untouched. rinse, and repeat.

so when Catherine alerted me to & Other Stories i went through all these stages, but i also marvelled at the care that went into the look & feel of the shopping experience. i ended up browsing for far longer than i usually would any other online shop.  i’m also taken by the beautiful design of their in-house beauty range - which i’m actually lusting after more than the clothes. i can just imagine these pretty serums and potions sitting atop my sink.

& Other Stories is actually a brand under the H&M group, it kind of feels like a rad Scandi version of Zara. they just opened a shop in Regent Street in London, so i expect they will be branching out further afield soon enough.

    Gah I want it all! Window shopping and drooling will have to suffice for now.

    So many amazing shoes! Thank goodness they don’t ship to the US, or I’d be in trouble.

    hmm don’t believe the hype! have to say my overall impression on the clothes was decidedly ‘meh’. The dress in the first photo above was the only thing in the shop I really liked.. I love Cos, its pretty much the only place I shop but Other Stories isn’t a patch on Cos especially the fabric choices. Also I wonder about the quality of the cosmetics as their nail varnish is possibly the worst quality I have ever bought! It is a unique shopping experience however and I did enjoy how the shop is laid out.

      oh that’s interesting (and sad) to hear! i suppose with a big chain you’re always going to have the inevitable quality control issue, which sucks. i also love COS.

    I feel your pain Diana! As a Brit living in New Zealand, it’s so frustrating seeing all the pretty things from afar, but my bank balance is better for it. I’ll settle for lusting over the images instead.

    Am I missing something? How can I find these items (like the flats?)

    I’ve been lusting after & Other Stories since they started talking about the opening and launched their [quite agressive] social media campaign. Like you, I was attracted to the gorgeous and clean look&feel and was kicking myself for having chosen to move back to my hometown right before they opened! Fortunately I have some amazing friends in London and have a package coming my way to Rio, can’t wait!

    I live in Stockholm where & Other stories opened this weekend! It is like a candy store for women! The beauty section was actually what caught my attention the most – the preciousness of all the different colors arranged in harmony :) Also, great with sinks where you could rinse your hands after trying the different shades of makeup – smart because then you get to try out the lovely scented soaps (lemon, fig, Shinjuku bloom etc.). I ended up buying the fig hand lotion, shantung green nail polish and a lipstick “Ninon Pink”. I wish I had more money so I could buy some bags and shoes :)
