Singer-turned retailer Lily Allen has denied reports that her vintage clothing store, Lucy In Disguise, is closing down after just ten months.
Allen, who co-owns the store with her half-sister Sarah Owen, said the shop has relocated from its Covent Garden premises into a pop-up store on Lowndes Street. Writing on Twitter, she said it is a temporary measure before Lucy In Disguise moves to new permanent premises on Lexington Street in August.
A statement released on behalf of the store said: “Our Covent Garden space was a nine month pop up store that helped us successfully launch the Lucy in Disguise concept and this current move was always part of our plan.Everyone can now expect the same incredible vintage pieces for sale or hire and our very own ready to wear. Everything can also be found online.”
Allen’s Twitter response came after yesterday’s Mail on Sunday claimed the pop-up shop was a “last ditch attempt” to save the shop.
Lucy In Disguise offers designer vintage clothing both for sale and for rent. The store and its launch was a subject of Channel 4 documentary - called Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags – which aired earlier this year.
