Lily Allen Stocking Her Vintage Clothing Store From Her Closet

Fans of Lily Allen are in for a sartorial treat next month when the British singer launches her own clothing store – especially as some of the items are coming straight out of Allen’s personal closet. Chatting to UK Elle in its August issue, the stylish musician (who has already dabbled in jewelry design as well as modeling), said she’s excited to share her clothes, especially if the swap shop encourages a less throw-away shopping culture. “It’s not ethical to do that, so I’m quite happy to turn it into a business and see other people having enjoyment out of it,” she said of the store, called Lucy In Disguise. Debuting at the Vintage at Goodwood festival in August before officially opening at a London location in September, it’s exciting news indeed. But don’t expect to find any one-of-a-kind Chanel handbags on the rails, especially not in her reportedly broody state of mind. “When I’m buying expensive things I tend to think, ‘yep, that’s something timeless that I can give to my daughter.’” We can’t help think that’s going to be one very lucky little girl! The August issue of UK Elle is on newsstands now.–Monique Jessen

I heard Lily Allen closed her store. Is this true? I hope not. She has such great style, I can only imaging what wonderful things are stocked in her store!
