The Old Curiosity Shop

Built in 1567 and commemorated by Charles Dickens’ novel, The Old Curiosity Shop has a distinctive, fairytale-like ambience. Daita Kimura started his business here in 1992 by creating handmade shoes in the basement. In addition to a new collaboration with the designers of Blaak, Aaron Sharif and Sachiko Okada, men’s attire from Blaak’s current collection can also be found in this historic space.
