Loads of the dreamiest high-end labels (Dries and Margiela, to name a few), but none of the shop-keeper snobbishness that usually accompanies them, this iconic high-end store (it stands for Modern Appealing Clothing) is as welcoming as it is stunning. Housed just a few paces away from the main Hayes Street strip, this sister-and-brother-owned shop is especially fond of moody Belgian labels and also commissions local designers to produce special capsule collections for the shop.
