"143" POP UP BOUTIQUE

As far as retail spaces go during current times a lot are just pants, so when i heard a store had just opened which had involvement from Kate Moross I knew i was in for a treat and boy was I right.

Last week Monday saw the opening of the pop up boutique 143, spear headed by few of London's creatives, its a well put together spot.
I was highly impressed with the visuals and products on offer in the store.

For a quick round up on the store here's a snippet from there website

"143 is a shopping experiment in the heart of London’s Newburgh
quarter, for a two week period in May, featuring an edited selection of
exclusive product as chosen by cult sub-culture brand Silver Spoon
Attire, art directed by the rising star of the London creative scene, Kate
Moross, and supported by the iconic scene brand of the moment, Gio-
Goi.
143 will be a fresh and visually stunning retail experience, showcasing
a range of international products available only on limited runs at the
143 location. Whilst the store will only handle globally exclusive
goods, it is essential to understand that these products are market
accessible to all consumer demographics."


I strongly advise you make the effort to get down there and take a look because its definitely a experience of which a lot of time and effort has been put into . . .
Oh, when you do go don't be a tight ass, purchase something as well, support your own.

Pictures just don't do the shop justice

Customer service was great as well, I will definitely be returning to pick some other stuff up before it closes.
