Hackney at Heart 

Sara Riverberi came to London to study Psychoanalysis only to discover that her instant love for the city opened new doors.Today she is a fashion store owner and photographer, living with her husband James in Hackney.



– I moved to Hackney as soon as I came here and I am definitely a Hackney girl at heart. The area has everything I love such as live music, markets, multiculturalism and so much more. It’s a magic world here; everchanging and never the same. I love sitting outside a café in Hackney and just watch people passing by or pick another area and explore, you know, breathe the vibe. Living in London is like having the whole world at your doorstep.




Sara’s style is eclectic. "I love to mix emerging independent designers with vintage finds and to base my style on my mood".
Always different, like the city she loves.




James Mariotti, married to Sara, is an Event Organiser. He finds Hackney to be full of inspiration and loves its multicultural vibes. His prime London tips are to visit Rough Trade and New River Studios for the coolest gigs and parties.





James' style is influenced by "Motörhead".
