Astley Clarke chooses Seven Dials for debut UK store
Jewellery brand Astley Clarke is to open its first UK store at Monmouth Street in London’s Seven Dials.
Due to launch this autumn, the 900 square foot shop will sell the brand’s full collection of jewellery and will also offer engraving and locket personalisation.
Founded in 2006 by Bec Astley Clarke, the brand started life as an online retailer, although its jewellery is now also stocked in Selfridges, Liberty and on FarFetch.
Scott Thomson, chief executive of Astley Clarke, said: “Authenticity, sustainability and heritage are all elements deeply rooted in our ethos as a brand and are features that also happen to be reflected in the make-up of Seven Dials as a destination, making it the perfect choice for us to launch our debut flagship store. This is just the beginning of our bricks and mortar story as a brand, and we look forward to launching our flagship store.”
Other brands that have taken space at Seven Dials recently include skate and streetwear brand Route One, COW Vintage and homewares and lifestyle brand Olive Jennings.
Samantha Bain-Mollison, retail director at Shaftesbury, said: “Astley Clarke is another milestone signing for Seven Dials with its esteemed British heritage, and loyal customer following, it is the perfect fit for the destination. Sitting comfortably alongside an enclave of jewellery leaders on Monmouth Street, including the likes of Dinny Hall, Astley Clarke positions Seven Dials at the forefront of retail trends, including the uptake in jewellery ownership throughout the pandemic,”
