This has been a while coming, but I wanted to write a post to introduce my new stockist, Hitome Adore.
The shop opened a few months ago and is situated on the second floor of Afflecks palace, Manchester’s premier alternative fashion market. It’s boutique-like feel makes it stand out from the other stalls and the eclectic mix of items make it well worth a visit.
At the opening we talked about the shop ethos and products on offer, tried on latex and gave people advise and even signed flyers for some excited school boys.
Hitome Adore is run by model Kira Krueger and TG Manchester promoter Frankie Knuckles and is also the official TG Manchester ticket vendor. They chose a dark but sumptuous look for the shop with dark striped wallpaper, damask curtains and dark wood vintage furniture, the shop name definition typed out on an old type writer is a nice touch to finish it off. My personal favourite item of furniture in the shop has to be the saddle chair, my current home decorating obsession has made me really appreciate quirky seating.
I was delighted to hear that they wanted Eustratia as the main brand, I’ve always enjoyed introducing new customers to latex, incorporating current trends into my collections and mixing latex with different fabric and textures, so making more wearable items to appeal to a more mainstream audience sounded like an idea that would lend it’s self well to my label.
Aside from the Eustratia range they also stock some latex accessories from Arcanum, chainmail accessories by Richard Ayres and a selection of wigs in various colours and cuts. Frankie Knuckles also has some of his own artwork displayed in the shop.
