Onetwentyeight founder adds Number Seven store

Mark Batista, founder of streetwear show To Be Confirmed (TBC), is to open his second streetwear store in London.

Batista will launch new concept store Number Seven in September after opening his debut streetwear store, Onetwentyeight on Columbia Road in Bethnal Green, east London, last year.

Number Seven will be a 1,400sq ft store at the Old Truman Brewery site on Brick Lane, east London. The brand mix in the new store will echo that of Onetwentyeight, which stocks Lyle & Scott, Adidas Originals and Penfield. New brands that will be introduced for autumn 09 include Canada Goose and Baracuta.

Number Seven will also be used as a gallery space by artists and host live music events.

Onetwentyeight is open only at weekends, but Number Seven will open seven days a week. Batista said: “Now is the time to take the brands we carry to a busier location.”
However, he said he would like both shops to retain an independent feel. “The thought of being recognised as a chain scares the living daylights out of us,” Batista said.
The TBC show was sold to Idex Media in 2007. The show was subsequently axed after the planned relaunch edition in February failed to garner brand support.
