Joe Casley-Hayford is not the first name you might think of as a leader of Britain's newer fashion designers. Nor is it the name his own parents might think of. In Ghana, his ancestors were lawyers and politicians. So when Casely-Hayford decided to pursue a fashion career, he made a break with tradition. But not a complete break, he says. "There is a lot of power in clothing. People respond to each other on the basis of how they look."

On paper Altai, a new interior design and men's apparel and accessories shop that opened its doors here last week, sounds straight out of “ Portlandia ”: It's a high-end boutique run by a combination midwife-interior designer-landscape architect from the U.K. who also happens to dabble in custom furniture and high-end luxury menswear while her boyfriend builds bespoke motorcycles from the ground up in the back room.
