Style Jaunt: The Concept Shopping Experience in Glasgow

Style Jaunt By Style Jaunt

This third episode of Style Jaunt Glasgow series highlights the city’s best concept stores. Canadian fashion bloggers Gracie Carroll and Alanna Durkovich meet the people behind this new concept in the Merchant City district, where upmarket designer fashion shops abound.

Factory 45

Gracie and Alanna kick off their day in Merchant City, one of the city’s cultural quarters, a haven for upmarket fashion shops. At Factory 45, they discover an alternative to fast fashion and mass production. A funky boutique that masterfully reflects the Scottish community spirit, Factory 45 not only carries clothes, accessories and art from local and emerging artists but also draws homegrown talents who want to learn and develop skills.

Piece

One should never shop on an empty stomach, so the girls stop in at Piece, Glaswegian for “sandwich,” to refuel. Hoping to elevate a sandwich from a merely tolerated lunch staple to an innovative meal, Piece’s “hearty, homely, adventurous, sometimes ridiculous” creations, always made from scratch and with locally sourced ingredients, cater to even the most discriminating of taste buds. No wonder its sandwiches have been named the best in Scotland.

 ten30

Gracie and Alanna then head off to ten30, reputed to be the leading bespoke tailoring outfitter in Scotland. A fusion between old and new worlds, with a little wacky thrown in there for good measure (think duck cufflinks), ten30 enlists the talents of Yorkshire tailors to create suits that are so inventive they will shame Don Cherry.

 Café Gandolfi

The girls wrap up their trip at Café Gandolfi, one of Merchant City’s must-eats. Doused in a speakeasy vibe, Café Gandolfi trumpets local Scottish produce in its signature dishes, which rely on fresh ingredients that are locally sourced and simply cooked. Simply delicious!

Book an Air Transat flight to Glasgow, Scotland to discover the concept shopping experience.
