Religion and Bolongaro Trevor scrap joint stores

Young fashion brands Religion and Bolongaro Trevor have ended their retail partnership just 14 months after launching a joint venture.

The two brands opened three joint B+R stores, one in Leeds’ Victoria Quarter and two in London, in Shoreditch and Islington.

The Leeds and Islington B+R stores have closed and the Shoreditch store will become a store for Religion and its sister brands Buddhist Punk and House of the Gods in February.

Religion said the closures had happened because of space issues which had not enabled them to show their collections in the best way.

Bolongaro Trevor said it would push ahead with standalone retail plans as a result of the closures. It opened a London store on Broadwick Street, just off Carnaby Street, last week.

“The Carnaby opportunity came and we decided to take it,” said Stuart Trevor, managing director of Bolongaro Trevor. “We are going to concentrate on Bolongaro Trevor standalone stores. We have been looking for a London West End store for a few seasons, this store became available and we secured it.”

The Bolongaro Trevor store is 625sq ft and sells the brand’s full menswear and womenswear collections.

Simon Quayle, director of Shaftesbury, the Carnaby Street area property developer, said: “The brand is perfect for the independent retail mix of Carnaby Street, and the edgy style is a welcome new addition to the line-up.”
