T+L gets a sneak peek at London’s latest go-to spot for men’s fashion.
“Shopping in places like Italy and Japan is like going on a treasure hunt,” says Sweden-born Mats Klingberg about his inspiration for Trunk Clothiers, in London. “You discover amazing brands from all corners of the world, and I wanted to bring them together under one roof—with a personal touch.” Klingberg, who had previous stints at Nordiska Kompaniet, Sweden’s iconic department store, and Giorgio Armani, chose the sophisticated Marylebone neighborhood for his cozy (there’s even a log fireplace), Scandi-style men’s store. His highly curated collection—from wintry quilted jackets by Italian label Aspesi to lamb’s-wool cardigans from Beams+, of Tokyo—is lovingly handpicked on his travels around the globe.
