One of our favourite reads for obvious reasons, so we're super flattered to be featured over on The Shopkeepers, a website dedicated to celebrating "shops that delight" all around the globe. Have a read. Victoria spills all the secrets on shopkeeping at The Hambledon; who designed the building, where she buys the wares, the lessons she's learned, the shops she loves...
We did it! Independent Retailer of the Year at the 2016 Drapers Independents Awards. And Best Lifestyle Independent to boot. Announced at a special celebratory lunch in London on Wednesday, with Victoria, Lucy, Rob and Finn there to pick up the gongs. (Rob promptly broke one but ducked out of the ceremony to a bicycle repair shop over the road and got it fixed). In the world of fashion retailing, Drapers is the oracle and these the most coveted industry awards there are, so we couldn’t be more thrilled. Big smiles all round, and huge thanks to all our lovely customers, suppliers and staff who make it all happen.
Thank you to Michael Sinclair, lovely photographer, Chloe Mitchell, lovely journalist and Caroline Taylor, lovely factotum at 91 Magazine. You have made us look very good indeed.
Hurray! Check us out at no16 on Drapers' list of inspring independents.
How thrilled and excited are we to feature in Vogue's list of the '100 Best Shops Outside London'?!
Great to see our new menswear department getting a well deserved mention in our favourite mens glossy. Thank you Esquire for your lovely words - has made us all warm and happy on this very wintry day!
