Shopper’s Diary: Goodhood Lifestore in Hoxton

August 9, 2013

A couple of weeks ago, Julie and I found ourselves wandering around (trendy) Hoxton in London in the oppressive heat. It was worth the trip to discover Goodhood’s new Lifestore. 

Six years ago, Jo Sindle and Kyle Stewart started the “Goodhood” aesthetic in a small storefront in Hoxton with a carefully selected inventory of brands from around the world who shared their ideas of independence, exclusivity, and quality for fine clothing and objects. They recently expanded across the street into the Goodhood Lifestore with a campaign to “Improve Your Life” through design. With brands like Hay, Present & Correct, Ferm Living, and their own Goods by Goodhood, we were instant fans.
