Few would guess that a former global marketer at American Express would be at the helm of an exciting directional indie, but that’s who’s steering menswear indie Trunk.
Mats Klingberg describes the London store as the “missing fit” between luxury stores Matches and Liberty and an old-school menswear shop, the likes of which he says don’t exist in the capital anymore. The business, situated close to London’s Marylebone High Street, reported a profit in its first year. In the latter months of 2011, sales doubled on the opening few months of the previous year.
