Merchant Archive has arrived

Post by Laura On 4 September 2016

Merchant Archive 1Merchant Archive is one of the new brands which we have in store for the Autumn Winter season and we can’t wait to shout about it from the rooftops! It was featured in our fashion show last Thursday and we thought we’d have a little chat about it.

Merchant Archive started in 2007 as a true archive sourcing and selling vintage clothes on appointment largely to designers for inspiration. In 2008 Sophie Merchant curated a corner of a small retail space, in a Victorian Lipton Tea shop, in Queens Park London, and three months later – due to demand – the small edit had taken over the entire space.db_file_img_6021_2000x2000 db_file_img_6020_2000x2000 db_file_img_5994_2000x2000

The store continued to provide inspiration for designers, but also attracted customers who mixed vintage with contemporary fashion for a unique wardrobe. Merchant Archive introduced contemporary labels in 2008, often supporting new British designers.

Revolving art exhibitions kept the space interesting and press, bloggers, stylist, celebrity and some of the world’s leading fashion designers frequented the little West London store.

In 2011, keen to push the brand forward, Merchant Archive opened a new luxury location in Notting Hill and in 2013 Sophie slowly began to introduce key elements of her own designs.

n September 2014, due to the success of the label, the store became exclusively Merchant Archive collection offering womenswear, accessories, homeware and of course its heritage; an exquisite vintage archive.

SS15 launched exclusively with Net-A-Porter. For AW15, the brand grows further with select international stockists in Europe, Middle East, the Americas and Asia.

For AW 16/17 we are delighted to be exclusive Scottish stockists.
