Luxury accessories brand Strathberry of Scotland has opened the doors of its first standalone store in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket.
The 750 sq/ft shop will serve as the brand’s Scottish flagship and will offer the label’s full collection of 10 men’s and 15 women’s bags, which combine Scottish tweeds and equestrian leathers.
Colours include Tantallon and Portmore, the name of the foothills near Strathberry of Scotland’s mill, set in Peebleshire. The range includes a Weekender bag, a Saddle bag, a satchel and a music case. Retail prices range from £600 to £1500.
Guy Hundleby managing director at Strathberry of Scotland said the brand’s position in the market had “serious growth potential”. He added: “In 5 years we see Strathberry as one of Scotland’s leading luxury brands, a multimillion pound business which proudly and confidently competes alongside other luxury brands internationally.’’
The brand also opens within the Massimo Bizzocchi store in New York’s Meatpacking district this week. The company is currently operating a five year growth plan which will see wholesale expansion in the UK and US, as well as “development” in Hong Kong and Japan.
