Every Wednesday, The FADER Style team asks employees and employers at our favorite shops around the world what their most cherished in-store item is at that exact moment. This week, we talked with smart staffers at London's Beyond the Valley and L.A.'s Ooga Booga.

This wonderfully practical coat/dress was inspired by a vintage piece from the late 20's that was handed down to one of the Beyond the Valley designers by a relative. The Noreen dress has been re-contextualized into a contemporary design, springing this little gem into the now without losing its 1920's glamour. The silky smooth cotton will keep you cool during those hot summer days whilst the shell-like collar adds a flare of elegance to the silhouette.

Lisa Sitko's ceramic apple pipe is awesome because it's a beautiful object that fits in nicely with my apartment and it doesn't make me look like a stoner. Every apple is different but my particular piece has this awesome fold in the side that
makes it look like the decomposing apples I used to find in the orchard near my childhood home.
