B store...B Blighty


Here in good old Blighty, past the rolling green hills, through the meadows, the horses and the cattle one can find many a modern day bazaar with their imposing square footage all boasting identical and predictable collections that simply leaves us looking like mirror images of are comrades in the U.S. of A and the continent. I ask, is the lure of immersing oneself in the  brashness and in many cases the down right gaudiness of the major fashion collections too much of a pull for many of the buyers? Does interest ultimately dissolve on the part of the buyer when the Davids of the fashion world say No! to being a part of Goliath's (This is in no way a reference to Anna Wintour and her minions...Pfff!) marionettes. My point is (I have a tendency to waffle) their are a vast number of talented individuals that simply don't have the financial backing to bombard us with its offerings and so are overlooked by the powers that be and we the public, in turn become ignorant to their very existence. All is not lost...I introduce B Store, a concept store that says No! to branded luxury and instead looks to entice those whom wish to indulge in innovative labels and budding graduates (My very British stiff upper lip was lost for a moment - Ha). Lets take a looky look...

Bristol pinstripe cotton tunic - £159



Barker natural short sleeve t - £59





Basil Gingham trousers - £125

Pleated front Burnley shorts - £119






Suede cut out shoes - £189



Leather Malcom shoe - £189

For the ladies amongst us - I give you...


Leather and suede fringe Edie shoe - £179

B store is a wonderful concept. Really the only thing that separates a lot of "young designers" from becoming household names is exposure. It's great when people try to recognize and help to promote new talent!
