The Hoodie of the Future

British clothier Vollebak makes garments for today’s superhero.

We've always loved 10 Corso Como in Milan and Collette in Paris—and we've wondered why there's never been this sort of well-edited epicenter of hip for men. Well, it's here: Microzine, in the north London neighborhood of Islington. The far-reaching collection of clothes, accessories, furniture, CDs, and books is so quirky and unique that words like "furniture" (a hand-stitched, leather-upholstered LCD television) don't do it justice. There are also Adidas sneakers, copied from a pair worn in the 1968 Olympics, that cost nearly $400; and a Flos Arco lamp, which looks at first like any other reproduction but is actually of a limited edition with a black marble base ($2,700). Microzine is a bit out of the way—a 15-minute cab ride from Oxford Circus. But you should have to work a little harder to discover extraordinary things. At 66-67 Colebrooke Row; 44-20-7704-6667; www.microzine.co.uk.
