MODERN SOCIETY - STORE MANAGER


Modern Society was born through a series of pop-up stores in 2013. We wanted to offer diversified shopping experience, creative inspiration and to connect with those that share the same vision with us. Today our goal remains the same.
 

In 2015, we opened the doors to our flagship store in Shoreditch, London. In this space we work across different mediums from fashion and photography to hospitality. There's nothing we won't do. Collaborations are always welcomed and nurtured.
 

Summer 2016 saw the launch of Modern Society eponymous label, which focuses on quality, wearability and modern simplicity. We love unisex feeling of clothes, so we design with both genders in mind. The label exists outside of fashion seasons. We will keep adding to the line throughout the year, so keep your eyes peeled.
