Now that Topshop is within spitting distance of the Hudson, it's time to start lusting for other European stores that should have US outposts but don't, namely Weekday, an off-shoot of Sweden's Cheap Monday. CM's founders, Örjan Andersson and Adam Friberg, started with a second-hand store in Stockholm called Weekend (it was only open on Saturdays and Sundays), and from the root of that tiny little shop springs their empire. If you've ever been to a Weekday store then you'll know there's usually an entire level dedicated to jeans and an upper level of non-denim goodies, including vintage pieces and indie designers. The fall lookbook is a mish-mash of all the many labels available at the Weekday store, vintage and non-vintage. Even if we can't bribe our Scandinavian lovechild to ship us the whole collection, the Village People stylings and GI Joe flourishes (beanie and military boots for the boys) are good inspirational bookmarks if nothing else.
