& other stories
I used the search but could´t find a thread yet.


anyone ever went shopping there? I was in one store in Scandinavia (I think it was Kopenhagen) but it was so crowed, I didn´t tried on any item.
Through I liked a lot of them. They quality seemed pretty nice, the prices were okay.

If anyone knows that brand, how is the sizing?

I adore this shop ! I order online because I don't live in Paris. Actually I've never bought clothes, but jewelry and shoes. Yes the quality is okay, and it is really worth it in sales. The coolest thing is that they care about the packaging, it is very well done and has pretty painting designs

I have this dress from a collaboration with Vika Gazinskaya. The quality is pretty awesome if you ask me. And the price for the dress was aroung 80 EURO.
And to be honest I just love their newsletters Every time I get so excited when I see &other stories send me an e-mail

they recently opened a rather large branch in NYC's soho...
a sales person told me they are owned by H&M...
the quality and pricing is in line with zara though...
and there is definitely a french twist to the prints and styles...
very vanessa bruno in some ways, which i quite like...

lovely store design and display, i might add...
and very strong in the accessory dept...

i like it...




can't say anything about sizing cause i didn't try anything on though...

I knew it´s from H&M but that doesn't automatically mean it´s bad.
COS is by H&M, too. And I love COS and the quality is great.

You say &other stories quality is alike ZARA.... to me ZARAs quality isn´t the best....

I just can't believe we didn't have this thread yet, thanks for opening it, myown!
It is my favourite highstreet store and I always shop there when being in London. The store on Regent Street is really great! Besides basics and cosmetics (which I adore, especially their body care products and nail polishes) I have their wool winter coat which is pure perfection. Very elegant, the material and the cut are great, as is the quality. All in all, I'm very satisfied.
As I said, the quality is outstanding for the price, more so than with COS and much MUCH better than Zara ... You really can't compare these two brands quality-wise ... I find the sizing a bit on the large side, but mainly because the items fits are longer (yay for us, tall people!), but this is to be expected since the brand is Scandinavian.

Lakomka, I love your dress, very pretty! And also agree about their newsletters. It's a shame they aren't shipping here, I have to ask a friend to get it to his own place for me. I hope they will add delivering countries to their list, like COS did.
