Longstanding Islington fashion boutique Diverse is set to be the latest arrival on Fortess Road, a sneaker’s hurl from both the quirky new jeweller’s Jessica De Lotz and Sarah Khan’s SK Vintage store.
Diverse takes over the recently-vacated Soho Hip, which closed in December. It has been something of an Upper Street staple for three decades, opening back in 1987, selling international brands like Acne, Jill Sander and YMC as well as new up and coming designers.
So what will the new store offer? “Womenswear to begin with, including jewellery and accessories, with the clear intention to add menswear as soon as possible.”
