scoute + darklands



i totally forgot about scoute. i don't know how, because everything they write about is amazing. in their most current issue they feature darklands, a store in berlin opened by fellow vancouverite campbell macdougall (who also owns my fav. mens store and sometimes my size store, komakino). the store looks simply stunning. it really makes me want to live in an old decrepit heritage building. but convenience won out with this place, rather than the beautiful heritage conversion we looked at in gastown.





i'm totally stealing some of his decor ideas. i will have me a candelabra and old set light. we desperately need lighting in here, and everything we like is uber pricey. there must be a way to find an old set light in "hollywood of the north".

I'm going to be thinking of this all night.

this store is incredible- I like the intentional somberness that actually makes me feel joyful and warm...

-h: indeed.. i bet they're antique hand forged nails though... i love most of the mens bags he carries. i should stop obsessing about fancy brand bags and just buy a crumbly leather bag from him.

la femme- i know, i'm kind of obsessed with these pictures now.

diane- definitely warm. there were some amazing stores in japan along those same lines. i wish my eyes were a camera.

What a gorgeous place to have a shop... seriously I love spaces with a story to tell... there is something very special about buildings like this
