Review of Pelicans & Parrots in LONDON
When Pelicans and Parrots opened on Stoke Newington Road in the summer of 2010 it was thanks to the efforts of Dalstonites Juliette Da Silva and Ochuko Ojiri. With Da Silva already a textile designer, Ojiri’s history as a buyer made them the perfect match. The store is a smorgasbord of wearable classics, dealing in anything from vintage Italian jumpsuits to tailored tweed. Alongside the clothing, there is room for an array of curious Victorian ornaments as well as the shop's signature record player-cum-cabinet – a must-have for anyone with a love for vinyl! Just a handful of shops down the road and you find Pelicans and Parrots Black, the darker, more exotic of the two stores. “At Pelicans and Parrots the products are either stunning, or just really, really useful,” says Ochuko. That’s two good reasons to pay a visit.
