There is, of course, plenty going on in London besides London Collections Men. Exciting design experiences and retail opportunities abound, including Modern Society, a new concept store in Shoreditch. Monocle’s Ilana Hanukov caught up with Nazifa Movsoumova at the shop on Redchurch Street to talk design, coffee bars and how people living in the fast lane just want to slow down.
