Boutique News: Coco Ribbon goes Bust!

Designer boutique Coco Ribbon goes into administration

The Luxury underwear, clothing and gift boutique Coco Ribbon has ceased trading after the economic downturn caused a slump in sales.

The west London store had recently publicised plans to expand into Russia. It had also reported a 60% growth in its online output and had been nominated by fashion industry magazine Drapers for a best independent online retailer award.

However, Alison Chow, founder of Coco Ribbon, said online sales did not contribute enough for the company to remain buoyant. The retailer is currently entering administration and will assess a number of restructuring options.

The high-end boutique, which opened in 2002, closed its Sloane Street store in 2006. Its streamlined offering included a Notting Hill boutique, an online presence at and a supplier relationship with department stores including Harvey Nichols.

It has been a favourite among celebrities and received regular publicity in the women's glossies.

Coco Ribbon's panty postman service received particular coverage. For £58 the boutique would post two new pairs of knickers to the customer's door every three months.

Boutique Brand: East Village

East Village is a boutique label specialising in feminine styles made from embroideries and textiles from the Far East.

Designer Karmin Kenny started the label 1.5 years ago with a small range of embroidered dresses that were snapped up by the likes of Graham and Green in London and Mee in Bath. East Village has since produced 3 collections, adorned with embellishments from India, Japan and most recently Vietnam. Each season, Karmin travels to a new place to hand-source fabrics and discover new embroideries.

The current collection features hand-embroidered flowers, birds and butterflies on deliciously-soft silk. Each piece is versatile (beautiful on their own or layered over jeans), comfortable and luxurious. They not only look gorgeous as fashion, but also hung on the back of a door or draped over a screen. A number of boutiques have snapped them up to add to their loungewear offerings.

The label caters to independent boutiques by offering short orders and small quantities.
