British menswear is a hot topic this season. First we broke the news of the brand new dedicated men’s fashion week, London Collections: Men, and now The British Design Council has collaborated with Value Retail to open a limited edition pop up boutique. Launched on Wednesday 16th May in Bicester village, this exclusive menswear boutique will remain open until 30th June 2012.
Bicester Village is a trendy and chic outlet located in Oxfordshire, which is home to over 130 stores. Bicester Village is just one of nine Outlet Shopping Villages owned by Value Retail and the British Fashion Council. You’ll find signature pieces from some of Britain’s most influential designers and brands, with all clothing up to 60% off the recommended retail price.
Sartorial elegance and off duty dapper looks are at the heart of this new pop-up store – with some labels straight off Savile Row. Whilst it is a great opportunity to purchase some of your favourite brand names at a reduced rate, it will simultaneously allow you to explore collections from some of Britain’s hottest up and coming menswear designers – providing them with the platform to showcase how the British design industry is thriving.
Designers included in the project are B Store, Chucs Dive & Mountain Shop, Emmett, Patrick Grant’s E. Tautz, Folk, Gentlemen’s Tonic, Grenson, Heritage Research, James Long, Jane Carr, Jonathan Saunders, Lily and Lionel, Lou Dalton, Margaret Howell, Mr Natty, Oliver Spencer, Richard James, Sunspel, YMC and Tim Little.
