This is no ordinary clothes shop – it's been conceived by interior designers Fred Rigby Studios following the principles of biophilic design.
All the timber panelling is repurposed from London plane trees which would otherwise have been destroyed; the countertop is made of recycled yogurt cartons; and there’s a meadow of textile blooms representing the organic materials in the clothing on display.
The fashion industry’s output has doubled to 100 billion units in the last 15 years, most of which will end up in landfill. A certified B Corp, Lestrange aims to make clothes which last longer and work harder, and to prioritise the use of recycled materials. Using locally-sourced repurposed London timber fits the bill perfectly.
