Here are some beautiful pictures in the March 2011 edition of Vogue Sposa shot at The House Next Door. The quarterly Italian magazine by Conde Nast concentrates on mixing all things wedding with all things style. These vintage themed pics by Wendy Bevan certainly fit that category!

You Magazine: Hem Fatale
Here are some amazing images from this weeks You Magazine shot at The House Next Door by Laura Alice Hart. Placing emphasis on long hemlines mixed with punky details the textures of the location complement the clothes beautifully.

Restraint by Fleet Ilya
Fleet Ilya recently took over our brand new Dalston location for the weekend to host a pop-up shop featuring examples of next years collection. The Hackney based boutique leather brand had gone into collaboration with world renown photographer Rankin fusing his iconic photography with their fetishistic style exemplified through the exhibition “Restraint by Fleet Ilya”. Prints and projections of model Sophie Willing and Jethro Cave wearing strategically placed Fleet Ilya products were on display, prostate tactfully woven into the natural character of our five storey Stoke Newington Road property.
Also on display was a 10ft leather horse made out of dozens of intricately cut pieces of leather which had been jig-sawed together and had arrived via a stint at Dover Street Market. The friday night saw the launch with a bar and DJ set up in our basement whilst a violinist and animal-faced operatic dancer serenaded guests upstairs. The top floor was reserved as an interactive role-play experience for certain attendees as they were summoned by a dominatrix onto a gothic bed in a balloon-filled room for their “special treat”. The less said of that the better.
The shop was open for the rest of the weekend giving a chance for Susie at Style Bubble to come down and write a very complimentary review while the sunday saw the return of the scantily-clad operatic dancer in our shop window enticing curious passers-by as well as somewhat bemused neighbouring cabbies!
It was also the first time we had managed to put our new cinematic front sign to use and we were delighted to see it in all its glory featured on the Vogue Italia website!
Many thanks to Tobias Radcliffe for the use of these great images.
G-Star RAW Conference
We recently hosted the sales conference for the managers and behind the scenes team at G-Star RAW. Employees were flown in from all over Europe for the two day exhibition at MC Motors where the warehouse was split into the four main themes with each one decorated to compliment their extensive shoe collection. Me, Him and Her were on hand to stamp G-Star’s mark on it by decking the main room out with 12ft ceiling banners and setting up a rather cool cotton backdrop to project the “business talk” onto.
Multimedia demonstrations were also integrated into each area with background music and themed films helping to set the mood further. There was even a gentlemen’s rest and recovery room upstairs complete with classic Chesterfields, Scaletrix and themed magazines (though the cigars had to remain unlit for health and safety reasons!).
As the pictures show the industrial setting complimented G-Star’s brand identity and their creative team did a great job in placing their abstract ideas onto a concrete platform.
Many thanks to Ian at Me, Him and Her (not bad pics for a non-professional!) and Matthew and Carly and the team at G-Star for letting us use their images!

Beth Graham Collection
We recently had the girls from Hub, our favourite local store, in to photograph their new collection for in-house label Beth Graham. Their 2010 winter collection draws its inspiration from classic 70s British glamour with their combinations of silks, tweed and corduroy coupled with mother of pearl and fine leather. Playing with a sumptuous palette of dusky rose, mushroom, ocre and peat (tones which suit the shades of The House Next Door perfectly!) the collection echoes of faded decadence.
Hub’s two boutiques (one male and one female funnily enough) have a fantastic selection of good quality, cherry-picked clothing and accessories. For the men (of which I can personally vouch) they have the smart-casual look sussed to a tee!
If you’re in the north/east London area it’s well worth making your way to 49 and 88 Stoke Newington Church Street and checking them out!
Many thanks to photographer Simon Wisbey and the girls for letting us use their fantastic images.
Mix it up with Vintage
If you’ve seen the latest Marks and Spencer’s advert on TV and thought some of the locations looked faintly familiar you’ll be pleased to know those cognitive skills are still as alert as ever!
We welcomed Lisa Snowdon, Ana Beatriz Barros, VV Brown and Twiggy to the upstairs room of our MC Motors location. Set to Cheryl Lynn’s disco classic “Got To Be Real” the iconic advert highlights key autumn items such as the aviator jacket and military coat as well as paying tribute to the return of tartan check.
The ad also higlights this autumns “Vintage Chic” trend and we think our dilapidated walls compliment this superbly. Full credit to their design team for their vision and creative set dressing!
Look out for our space from 0.30 mins onwards! (We can’t lay claim to the airfield or Millennium Bridge unfortunately!)
