London’s Kingly Court, just off Carnaby Street, has added three new independent retailers to its 28-store line-up.
Contemporary menswear and womenswear store Carte Blanche, retro womenswear store Nikita Sablier and lifestyle boutique Supernice have all set up shop in the area.
Supernice was founded two years ago by former Selfridges interiors buyer Louise Sandor, and Carte Blanche specialises in selling fashion labels such as Harajuku Lovers and jewellery brand CC Skye.
Nikita Sablier sells vintage-inspired labels and bespoke corsetry. Owner Nikki Hambry said: “Although I realise there are risks involved in setting up a new business in the current economic climate, I’ve negotiated a competitively priced lease and I am convinced that quality items will still sell regardless of the state of the economy.”
Shelley Webb, Kingly Court manager, added: “The three new boutiques add even more to Kingly Court, which was designed as an incubator area for small and interesting brands.”
