We have been working with Chester Barrie since Bobblehat was founded back in 2013. We have delivered various projects over the years, including multiple showrooms, retail concessions, exhibition stands in Florence and retail stores around the UK.
Our favourite project for Chester Barrie was the design and delivery of their flagship store on Savile Row. The challenge was redesigning their store to create a minimal, formal retail space.
Working closely with Chester Barrie's Creative Director, we took influence from the era in which Chester Barrie was founded while adding contemporary elements. Artwork from the 1930s lines the walls, bronzed powder-coated fixtures framed the brand's collections and the floorboards were exposed and polished.
A crucial aspect of the brief was to achieve and create a sense of space within the long and narrow store, as the previous store felt crowded for the customer. Light-coloured walls & flooring, open & minimal bespoke displays with glass shelving and multiple mirrors helped achieve this.
