laura-j-london.jpgLaura J London, the boutique and short-run designer label is one of Islington's better-kept secrets, but those in the know go back time and again. Having been to check out the new stock for summer 2010 it's easy to see why: these gorgeous styles from the store's signature label are made using time-honoured methods and to the highest quality - always with an eye for the hottest trends.

Arranged alongside cutting edge labels like Chie Mihara, Lady Double You and Beatrix Ong, Laura J's new collection has some strong standout pieces: I'm particularly fond of the colour block ankle boots pictured top left, and there's a real emphasis on contrast and bold styling throughout the range. And if you like what you see here, chances are you'll love the current sale that's now underway, with loads of similar styles from last season's collection right here.
