Flare Street Blog
For a long time, we've had a love-affair with Magenta Pink but this magical colour has proven verrrry difficult to find in a beautiful velvet! So we've super excited to announce some new flares, not only Magenta Pink Velvet, but in our Midnight Stardust fabric too... these babies have the beautiful golden and amber sequin trim on the base of the flare along with the trickling sequinned flowers running up the leg.
Once again we have a very limited amount of these, and once they're gone, that's the end of them!

Bright, bold, beautiful and quite short lived, The Apple Boutique by The Beatles was designed and stocked by design collective, The Fool, in 1967 in bustling London.
The store was managed by Jenny Boyd, sister of Pattie Boyd, and Pete Shotton, who was John Lennon’s school mate. In addition to psychedelic and vintage clothing, the boutique sold books, music, spiritual objects, instruments and art.
The concept of the store was that everything within it’s walls was for sale and was meant to capture the vibrant essence of the Fab Four and be a cultural centre for their friends and fans alike.
Despite the overwhelming popularity of The Beatles at the time, the boutique was not ultimately a success for Apple Corps and had to shut its doors after only eight months.
On closing day, The Apple Boutique opened up for the last time and decided to give away the remaining treasures within the store for free, on a “one item per person” basis, could you imagine??!
Even though their boutique was short lived, the fashion and style of the iconic Beatles is sure to inspire until the end of time.
