About Us

Couverture & The Garbstore is a creative concept store by Emily Dyson and Ian Paley conceived in 2008. Housed in a three-storey converted period townhouse as well as operating online, this Notting Hill style haven transports you through an eclectic edit of womenswear, menswear, accessories and homewares. Focusing on championing emerging and independent labels with a story to tell, our carefully curated collections perfectly embody the ‘shop independent’ philosophy that Couverture & The Garbstore stand by.

Run as two separate stores within the same building, Couverture is dedicated to womenswear, accessories, jewellery, homewares and beauty.

Downstairs is home to Garbstore; firmly established as one of London’s best menswear shopping destinations. Deliberately eschewing the mainstream in favour of something innovative and unique, Garbstore seeks to champion niche, independent labels, providing a showcase for emerging talent, limited edition products and collaborations. In addition to representing the very best of cult brands from the UK and globally, Garbstore also is home to its eponymous menswear label, created and designed by Ian Paley.
