Sarah Coggles, York

Chosen by Richard Ash, founder of Green Room Retail Design

I always look forward to a visit to York, not only for the stunning architecture, but especially for a visit to mega-boutique Sarah Coggles.

I’ve tried to define why I love Coggles so much. It could be the wonderful choice of 200 brands for men and women, the fact that the buyers are prepared to give fledgling labels a platform, or indeed the exceptional design of the store. It’s always a challenge designing stores in such antiquated environments, but director Mark Bage and his team have created a bazaar that never ceases to excite as you move from room to room - a true Liberty for the north.

What’s more, the staff have all perfected the art of invisibility until you need them, at which point the charm offensive really starts in abundance as they politely recommend alternative looks or accessories that, in my case, has certainly driven incremental sales.

And if the trip up the M1 seems too daunting for any Southerners reading, then a visit to the well-designed Coggles.com site should scratch any designer itches.
