If the thought of cult garments from Comme des Garçons, archival pieces from Martin Margiela and rare selections from Katharine Hamnett and Hussein Chalayan baffles your heartbeat, there’s a pop-up shop for you in Soho.

Here is La Nausée, the e-commerce site specializing in collectibles chosen for their ability to represent the creators and their era of creation.

Harry Tibble and Ross McLeish are the men behind the pick picks. Tibble founded the company during the 2020 lockdown and borrowed the name from the 1938 novel by French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre. He was reading the book at the time, and it nicely captures the thought that goes into every piece purchased; a skill he honed while working at destination shops Machine-A and Dover Street Market.

“Things started to accelerate much faster than expected. I brought Ross [McLeish]my now partner in the business who has had a similar experience to mine in the field, and two years later we have recently moved into our first studio in Camberwell,” says Tibble.
