In London one can learn a lot about design... in most cases that the older the better. Vintage, of course is still extremely popular. Starting from the old decor, shoes, watches and china, going to cars, bikes and even weddings. But the real sense of luxury provide only Victorian-Edwardian interiors and architecture, still wonderfully pervasive there. Of course, for the nowadays connoisseur of styles, the historical legacy should be adapted to modern culture, best soaked with gothic-punk references and slightly emotional perversion. Then it loses it's antiquarian virginity what attracts even more. Photos come from the collection of House of Hackney.
