Shoreditch indie Celestine Eleven closes

East London-based premium womenswear independent Celestine Eleven has closed after three years of trading.

The shop has been emptied of stock

One source indicated the business has fallen into administration.

The store was opened in 2013 by former stylist Tena Strok. It stocked a selection of labels including quirky womenswear from JW Anderson and Meadham Kirchhoff.

A space in the basement housed pop-up events, classes and treatment rooms.

The shop was located at 4 Holywell Lane, a quiet street near Shoreditch High Street station. There are no other retailers on the street, although Agent Provocateur founder Joe Corre’s independent A Child of the Jago is nearby on Great Eastern Street.

However, the area is being developed and boutique hotel CitizenM opened on Holywell Lane last week.

Celestine Eleven’s website is down and its Facebook page was last updated on 2 September.

It is thought some brands pulled their stock out of the store weeks ago, after hearing of the impending administration. 

Drapers was unable to reach Strok for a comment.
