What better way to kick off London Fashion Week than with an exclusive pop-up store in Covent Garden showcasing some vintage items from Triumph's archives. I am talking about the full on printed duo from the 70's, the corsage form the 80's, the uber sexy satin ensemble from the 40's ... It was a nice reminder of the difference between style and fashion. Fashion weeks come and go and every season fashion - the fast fashion - pops its head round the corner and we go all out with the trends, and key pieces of the season. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, actually it makes Fashion Week and all its attendees quite an amazing show. But it is nice once in a while to sit back and appreciate true style and some heritage.
If going back in time is not your thing, then maybe the unique one off a kind pieces resulting from some more than talented collaborations with leading designers such as Matthew Williamson, Felder Felder and Louise Gray. Think craftsmanship and expertise meets couture.
Now open to the public from Friday 15th until Monday 18th February - 71 Monmouth Street, Covent Garden WC2
