North Street newbies!
Recreo, an independent premium menswear brand launched their first store on North Street, Bedminster last month. The company was already an established e-commerce business for 4 years before deciding to open a retail outlet.
The store, which is open 6 days a week at present, has an impressive portfolio of streetwear brands including; Brixton, Dickies, Wemoto, Asics, Saucony, Herschel, Eastpak, and many more. An attractive collection for the fashion conscious man of today.
The team chose Bedminster, and North Street in particular as their location because of it's creative buzz and sense of community. They share the same supportive ethos as other independent businesses on the road and are excited to be part of the neighbourhood.
The store isn't only a shopping space, it's a fully functioning platform to showcase creatives work. With wall space dedicated to regularly rotating exhibitions, and the store available to book for event space, this new creative hub adds vibrance to North Street. The current exhibition is by East London artist Reuben Dangoor, who is known for his drawings of UK Grime artists. Coming up very soon is an exhibition dedicated to Louis Theroux by Jiggle Apparel.
recreo's most recent event was last Saturday, April 8th. The team hosted an exclusive launch event for book and EP, 'Skit City'. A collaborative project from London based artist, Jack Ramsay and Bristol based drum & bass producer, Foreign Concept. Jack Ramsay has spent the last 2.5 years working on his first book, a no-text urban story book; and more recently illustrated Foreign Concept's latest EP cover and music video. Both book and vinyl were on sale, and the pair were available for signings, as well as a DJ set by Foreign Concept.
recreo have stated that they plan to host regular events of this ilk and to 'watch this space'. Make sure to follow their social media accounts to keep up-to-date with future exhibitions, events, and offers.
