Earlier this year, Cath Kidston store, Pravins, Famous Memorabilia, and Rupert & Buckley closed for good with the last two stores claiming that they were only pop-ups after their departure. Rex and American Candy also closed for good later in the year within a space of just two days.
Despite departures, the shopping centre has welcomed a number of stores including Bershka, Gogo Gadget, and Tag Heuer, a high-end watch store. A little further up in Quakers Friars, a new Bristol Sport store has replaced Cath Kidston, selling merchandise for Bristol Flyers basketball team, Bristol City FC and Bristol Bears rugby team.
Another exciting addition to Cabot Circus is the & Other Stories, a classy women clothing store that opened in Autumn. Occupying a prime pitch at the ground floor of the centre, the & Other Stories replaces Costa Coffee and spans 12,682 square feet. The store further enhances its parent company’s footprints at Cabot Circus as it joins H&M sister brands, Cos and Monki.
The & Other Stories store caters to the demands of fashion-conscious shoppers. It showcases H&M brand’s full offering including accessories, beauty products, bags, shoes jewellery and ready-to-wear collections.
& Other Stories is a Swedish clothing, accessories, and beauty brand owned by the H&M Group. The brand has strong attention to detail and offers everything a woman can wear – stationery, accessories, beauty products, bags, shoes and ready-to-wear. The designs are not only reasonably priced but also ageless and inclusive – their campaigns have featured trans women and women over seventy years old.
& Other Stories’ collections are designed in three design ateliers: Stockholm, Paris and Los Angeles. The tag of each item states which city it was created in and the aesthetics differ in obvious ways. Stockholm designs stick to the Scandinavian predilection for architectural shapes. Paris’ atelier collections are delicate, adorned in rhinestone heart ruffle and the Southern California designs are minimalist and tomboy. However, the atelier designs blend seamlessly and are sold alongside each other within the & Other Stories stores. This way, shoppers can walk into a store and build, from the three ateliers, their own personal style.
It’s only at & Other Stories that a shopper can simultaneously be the Parisian it-girl, dress in a laid-back cool look associated with Los Angeles or try out a Scandinavian top.
