B Store has been revolutionizing Savile Row with its gallery/ retail space that specializes in emerging designers and artists, The brand will be showing its own clothing label and footwear at (capsule) New York as well as London Fashion Week. We've got a little q&a with the guys here.
What was your inspiration for your A/W 2009 collection?
1968 Paris riots.
Which items do you consider to be the most significant or representative of the collection? The cord collared shirts in black+white, pea coats with a modern twist, shawl collar tops and overshirts.
How was the recent global economic crisis affected your collection/company? We keep doing what we do best, and firmly believe that the differences in design were never as crucial as now. The financial situation, we think, will benefit those that stand out.
Do you have any other projects in the works? Collaborations? Stores? Expansions? We are showing on schedule for London Fashion Week, which is a major challenging step for us.We have a collaboration with DoubleM in the pipeline for ss10.
