London is a multifaceted destination. While on one hand it is longed for its landscapes and streets rich in history, on the other hand it’s also coveted for its multicultural and avant-garde heritage. Indeed, in London you can find historical places like Westminster Palace and the Big Ben, but it’s also the cradle of some of the coolest hidden gems in the country.
And that is the case of LN-CC, a unique and progressive concept store in Dalston. Here you’ll be able to find anything from books, music records, art, menswear and womenswear. LN-CC offers an impressive brand portfolio, including Veilance, Stone Island, different luxury brands, as well as their own collections and collaborative capsules.
LN-CC’s store interior is just astonishing: it features a mix of futurism and experimental design. It feels like you are entering a minimalist spaceship, only the store is not in outer space but right under the street level. It’s an underground experience 一it’s actually located underneath a drab office block一 which you can access only with a previous appointment.
As you can see, LN-CC is not an ordinary store, yet that’s not all. The space is also home of Late Night Chameleon Café and occasionally private events, which is topped by a hip sound system. All products are distributed along the store and separated into themed zones.
Although it is temporarily closed due to the pandemic, it’s worth the visit once everything goes back to normal. Friendly reminder: you will have to schedule an appointment before you go or you won’t get through that door. Meanwhile you can still check their online store.
