The J Brand, Helmut Lang and Theory sample sale kicked off yesterday with an exclusive Preview Event where I got the chance to rummage rails...
Are you getting excited by the prospect of buying brands like Mulberry, JOSEPH, M.i.h. Jeans, Orlebar Brown and Whistles for up to 60% off? We do and we wanted to know more. In anticipation of Kilver Court's first ever designer furniture warehouse sale, we caught up with Kilver Court to find out why the designer outlet is a must-visit for everyone on the hunt for discounted designers.
Shopping Spy: "What is Kilver Court about? What did it set out to be and what makes you different from other outlet malls?"
Kilver Court: "Created by Mulberry founder and English designer Roger Saul, Kilver Court Designer Village is a unique designer retail outlet destination featuring an eclectic, fresh and constantly updated edit of the best in fashion, interiors and lifestyle. Situated within regenerated textile mill buildings, our super stylish designer village comprises of stand-alone outlets, a designer Emporium, Arcade and Silk Lane offering over 50 designer fashion brands and the Great House offering a treasure trove of decorative items, home accessories, gifts and artisanal food and drink products.
Behind the old mill complex is a stunning 3.5 acre garden, as seen on BBC Gardeners’ World. Highlights include a reproduction of George Whitelegg's Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winning rockery, organic vegetable garden, parterre, mill pond and newly redesigned 100m herbaceous borders, all set against the impressive backdrop of the Charlton viaduct. We also have a garden nursery featuring an eclectic mix of the very best plants from specialist plant growers."
Shopping Spy: "What can shoppers expect when they come to visit? Describe a perfect day out at Kilver Court."
Kilver Court: "Shoppers should expect the unexpected when they visit Kilver Court! They’ll find not only a selection of amazing fashion brands with up to 60% off RRP, including the only TOAST and Rapha outlets in the world, but there’s also the stunning landscaped garden with its colossal viaduct and interesting planting scheme. Elsewhere on site, there’s the Harlequin Café and Sharpham Pantry Restaurant with delicious seasonal menus using locally sourced ingredients, including spelt harvested at our organic farm, Sharpham Park. No trip to us is complete without a visit of the Great House; a lifestyle emporium filled with the cool and quirky in gifts, homeware and bedding."
Shopping Spy: "When scouting the brands to work with, what do you look for? Did you have a specific customer in mind?"
Kilver Court: "We have a select, curated group of brands that appeal to our core customer base. When scouting new brands to work with, we look for those that not only bring a new dimension but also enhance and compliment the brands we already have on site."
Shopping Spy: "On the 28th June your first ever designer furniture warehouse sale kicks off. What brands and products will be on sale? What discounts will you offer?"
