2 Pay a visit to Patagonia’s new repair centre in Haringey
Breathe live into older clothes with this exciting new opening. Outerwear specialist Patagonia has unveiled a new repair centre in London, established alongside social impact companies United Repair Centre (URC) and Fashion Enter.
Based in Haringey, the centre is focused around making repairs more accessible, allowing other brands to also participate while also contributing to the local job market.
Clothing manufacturer Fashion Enter will train the centre’s team on-site in regards to technical repairs, with URC to then take on carrying out repairs for Patagonia’s UK customers, as well as three more brands that are expected to join the initiative within the next year.
The opening follows URC’s launch of a repair centre in Amsterdam, where it teamed up with Makers Unite, the Amsterdam Economic Board and Patagonia and now handles 30,000 repairs per year, according to a press release.

3 Pop in to Good London’s Victoria station pop-up
If you’re a sucker for vintage fashion, you’re in luck.

The new London Victoria store becomes Good London’s second pop-up to launch within Network Rail locations, having debuted at London Bridge this summer. Commuters can now browse high-quality, pre-loved designs at both stations until early 2024.
Since its 2020 inception, Good London’s outlets have inspired shoppers to consider buying pre-loved clothing first. In just three years, they’ve opened three permanent stores and have now added a duo of pop-ups at London Victoria station and London Bridge station – a first of its kind for the brand taking space in travel retail locations.
Commuters at both locations can now shop a selection of high quality, carefully curated pieces ranging from trendy high street dresses to unique one-off vintage and designer items. Whether it’s a quick fashion fix before hitting the town or a stylish gift to greet loved ones with, shoppers will be sure to find what they’re looking for here!
