LN-CC, London, England
The Late Night Chameleon Cafe (LN-CC), lies behind an unmarked, unassuming door. Easily missed, this unique and trendy shopping destination is one of London's must-visit locations. Meant to be a 3-D representation of the internet, LN-CC is an always-evolving concept space that morphs and changes depending on the different fashion trends. LN-CC has difficult-to-find fashion items, collections by top designers such as Vetements, Alyx, Fendi, and Y-3 as well as other pieces.
