Beyond Retro LABEL
Through a rigorous grading process, only 1 in 1,000 items are selected for the shopfloor. The brands own upcycled range – Beyond Retro LABEL – is their answer to the other 999. Crafted from reclaimed materials, Beyond Retro LABEL gives a second life to unwanted clothes, creating on-trend pieces and saving over 600,000 items from landfill a year.
The brand also makes a conscious effort to stay green in all elements of the business, from packaging to shipping, to minimise any impact on the environment. As part of one of the world’s largest recycling companies, Bank & Vogue, Beyond Retro has an established international infrastructure that allows for recycling and upcycling on a global scale.
The store will be an affordable, exciting destination for original fashion, following the creative values of the brand whilst seeking to be influenced by, and become a part of, Bristol’s fashion scene.
