Universal Works – Lambs Conduit Street shop

July 17, 2012

Fans on Nottingham’s Universal Works will be pleased to know that the label have finally made the foray into a permanent bricks and mortar shop on London’s Lambs Conduit Street. Those that visit the street regularly will notice that it’s situated in what was Oliver Spencer’s shoe shop (which has now moved further down the street) and the guys have certainly made the most of the bijou space.

The shop actually feels much bigger than the small space should allow, but the plain walls and raw floorboards provide a welcoming environment with which to view the collection in its entirety (as opposed to the select pieces stockists buy) and the whole shop feels compact but in no way cramped.

The full range of garments is simply displayed via hangers on scaffold poles, which are suspended by yellow seat belt material from simple wooden shelving. Everything the label produces is here, from outerwear to blazers to shirts, through to more casual jersey pieces and T-shirts.

Knitwear sits neatly folded on the shelves above and the center shelving unit is home to trousers and
key items. Socks take up the old fireplace with bags either side, and a selection of framed black and
white photographs break up the white walls. It’s a welcome addition to the street and one that’s worth checking out.

For more information on the brand, or to find your nearest stockist, go to the website here: Universal Works.

    I was in there a couple of months ago and they were having a sale, but it seemed like it was mostly t-shirts? I’d never heard of them before.

      That might have been the pop-up shop at Cube. This opened last Saturday, having previously been Oli Spencer’s shop.

    Went in last week and really like what they’ve done with the space. It’s also good to see the full breadth of what they produce, as there always seems to be much more on their website than you see in the stores.
