Hermès Luxury Laundromat Comes To Manchester In UK Exclusive

Hermès makes is set to make make Manchester the first city in the UK host it’s incredible laundromat concept

A year ahead of Hermès‘ 80th anniversary of the launch of its famous silk ‘Carré’ – the iconic silk scarves unique to the French fashion house – Hermès has launched a luxury laundromat pop-up which has traveled already to Strasbourg, Amsterdam, Munich and Kyoto.


Hermèsmatic, a playful standalone concept designed to breathe new life into pre-loved Hermès silk scarves will make its UK debut in Manchester this October 2017.

Coming to the UK for the first time, after a colourful voyage around the world, Hermèsmatic laundrette is open to everyone and offers a chance to discover the wonderful world of Hermès silk.

Here’s how it works: If you already have an Hermès scarf—maybe you inherited or were gifted one that you’ve been saving but feel just isn’t quite your colour—you can take it in to be dip-dyed for free. The colour experts on site guide you, and explain what each of the dyes would do to transform (they call it “colourful metamorphosis”) the scarf to a jewel-toned little treasure.

The dye selection process just takes a few minutes, and then the scarves are left in-store for 24-48 hours to be washed, dyed, dried, and made ready for pick-up. If you don’t have an Hermès scarf, don’t fret. They have a small selection of vintage 90 cm scarves from retired collections available

From Thursday, 5th October for 7 days, the launderette will also play host to Hermès silk styling workshops, where our specially trained stylists will dip into the Hermès scarf collections and show you a myriad of ways to wear a Hermès scarf. You can also bring your scarf to the Hermèsmatic launderette on Manchester’s King Street and select from a choice of vibrant colours – denim blue, fuchsia pink and bright red. Then watch as your scarf is transformed by the vivid and colourful dye bursting onto the print. A must visit experience for all luxury fashion fans.

The Hermès Luxury Laundromat pop-up is will be open for 7 days from Thursday 5th October – Thursday 12th October 2017
Located at 31 King St, Manchester M2 6AA

Topshop Trafford Centre Revamp Unveiled

Our MCR Fashion Industry partners Topshop have opened their largest UK store outside London at the intu Trafford Centre.

The newly remodelled and revamped shop is now second only to the fashion giant’s Oxford Circus flagship, having almost doubled its shopping space to 38.5 square feet across two floors.

The store opened its doors with a weekend-long secret store party – featuring beer pong, selfie swings, Nintendo, Crazy Pedro’s pizza, a balloon pit and DJs. For the city’s fashion lovers, there’s much to be excited about.

And bigger certainly means better for the ever-popular retailer. Mirroring the Oxford Circus flagship, Topshop have introduced popular King Street nail salon, Nailista, as a brow and nail service on the top floor. Shoppers can take advantage of various beauty treatments and makeovers at the expanded concession.

More space to play with also means more new lines delivered weekly. The store now stocks a comprehensive selection of both Topshop and Topman collections – ranging from core classics to leading designer collaborations, including its much documented bridal wear.

A Manchester first, the Trafford Centre branch additionally features a personal shopping lounge; offering customers a premium tailor-made shopping experience from dedicated style experts.

A grand spiral staircase, soon to be completed, will sweep up to Topshop on the second floor, overlooked by a giant screen showing footage from Topshop Unique’s catwalk show at the Tate Modern.

Topshop now consists of Mainline, Maternity, Boutique and Moto Denim collections as well as Orelia and Quay sunglasses. Topman is not an afterthought in the new store, however. Men can now shop Topman’s mainline collections on the ground floor – including a selection of signature suiting, outerwear and denim – alongside premium lines from Topman Ltd, Premium and AAA.

Topman shoppers can also expect upcoming designer collaborations from Charlie Casely-Hayford and James Bay, as well as a Manchester-only exclusive with Okuh.

With a large student population and a core customer base, expanding in Manchester is a logical step for the fashion brand.

Introducing BABE POWER the debut fragrance from Missguided. With the company going from strength to strength, the fast fashion retailer has expanded its beauty range with the launch of its first perfume.

In celebration of their new fragrance debut Missguided celebrated their collaboration with Per-scent, an industry leading perfumer, revealing a ‘sexy and effortless’ scent.

Babe Power is the embodiment of the iconic Missguided brand, with its scent designed to evoke feelings of “strength, confidence and femininity.” The quirky, drink can shaped fragrance, is designed and packaged to perfection, in typical Missguided fashion and features 10 ‘babe commandments’ which every girl should obey. It’s fair to say that the fragrance is for the girl who wants her scent to match her unapologetic attitude.

It certainly is exciting times for Missguided, having opened its first store in Westfield Stratford, and understood to be eyeing stores in Liverpool, Newcastle and Bristol plus, opening its second bricks-and-mortar store in Bluewater in Kent this summer. It seems there are no boundaries for CEO Nitin Passi and his Missguided team.

The official launch of new perfume Babe Power had plenty of that – as a host of glamorous guests were invited to the lavish Menagerie Restaurant, the previous setting for our own MCR Fashion SS17 Rethink:PINK event last month. Guests in attendance included bloggers, press, plus media personalities from tv & radio.

A host of paparazzi greeted famous faces on arrival and inside guests were transported into a world of Missguided, including pink cocktails, candy, unicorns, dancers and acrobats, plus The Gypsy Shrine on hand to give guests a glittery glow.

The Babe Power EDP combines notes of grapefruit zest, orange blossom, vanilla and candy floss to leave a provocative and lasting impression and has already sold out on its initial release, with the brand rapidly restocking to fulfill the high demand for its worldwide customer base. We have no doubt this will be your go-to scent of the summer!
