Located in the Bussey Building in Peckham, Alpha Shadows is London’s best kept secret for trendy Japanese menswear and Californian ceramics. Started by Tom Piercy, Alpha Shadows brings many of their minimalist Japanese labels over to the UK for the first time, stocking everything from slick chambray shirts, to leather accessories, beautiful hand-made footwear and effortlessly cool quilted jackets.

On the other side of the store is their amazing homeware collection. Of course carrying a range from staple Hasami Ceramics, Alpha Shadows is the only UK stockist for dreamy California potters Kat & Roger and A Question of Eagles. Such is the demand, when new Kat & Roger pieces come into stock, most are sold out within the first few days. This is one store, more than worth the trip across the river.
