Richard James is thrilled to announce the unveiling of the £2 million refurbishment of its Grade II listed Georgian townhouse – the new ‘House of Richard James’.
Thirty-two years after metaphorically gate-crashing Savile Row with a rebellious spirit and boundary-pushing approach to tailoring, renowned luxury menswear label Richard James will mark the opening with a VIP event on 29th February.
The 2,500 sq ft store and workspace located on Clifford Street, directly opposite the brand’s Savile Row store, has been reimagined as a three-storey temple to beautifully crafted ready-to-wear and bespoke tailoring.
The brand launched in 1992 with a £10,000 overdraft by designer Richard James and co-founder Sean Dixon – swiftly made its mark in British luxury menswear, rising to prominence on the wave of Britpop, and attracting an entirely different audience of Young British Artists and cult musicians to The Row.
The brand’s established status on Savile Row has been underlined by the new Clifford Street space, which has been overseen by celebrated international interior designer David Thomas.
Thomas delved into the Richard James archives with the brand’s Creative Director Toby Lamb for references that appear throughout the polka dot carpet leading to the first floor, striped curtains echoing silk ties, and custom rugs inspired by pocket square designs across the years. Colour is key to the experience; walls are saturated in rich immersive hues of Blue Pearl, Rhubarb, Noon Whiskey yellow, Caravan orange with deep Georgetown red tones that simultaneously envelope and open up the space leaving customers cocooned and revitalised all at once.
