Nestled along the Margate coast is independent fashion boutique Albion Stores, set up by Katie and her husband Joe in 2018 after a relocation from London. Together they brought their lifelong dream of owning a shop to life.
“Our aim is to bring to our customers a little extra everyday” says Katie, “so we look for brands and products that bring a little something more. This could be another level of detailing, or the effort to be consciously kind to the environment, or a level of joy by design.”
Stocking cult favourite indie brands such as LF Markey, Nigel Cabourn, Seventy + Mochi and Hikerdelic, Albion Stores curates a mix of contemporary mens and womenswear that is set to inject a little joy to your wardrobe refresh this season.
