According to Terry Rawlings in his book Mod: A Very British Phenomenon, the emerging mod scene of the late 1950s attempted to be at once “neat, sharp, hip, and smart.” It comes as no surprise that London, the city that gave birth to the hyper-cool-fashion-obsessed-scooter-riding mod subculture, would also house Darkroom, a new concept store, which sells everything from clothing to jewelry to interior accessories. In a perfect tribute to mod culture, Darkroom’s selection is streamlined but never dull, hip but not trendy, and tirelessly fresh.
