TOP DRAWER 2019 PREVIEW

By Belinda Morris

Described as ‘a global edit of the very best products across the lifestyle spectrum’, Top Drawer (13th-15th January, 2019, Olympia, London) covers 11 curated sectors, from ‘Home’ and ‘Food’ to ‘Fashion’ and ‘Craft’… and everything in between.

The ‘Fashion’ sector (apparently ‘the UK’s largest edit of jewellery and accessories’) is further divided into specialist areas, which this year includes MR. – a new showcase for fashion and lifestyle brands ‘that embody the modern man’.

With the menswear market set to outperform womenswear globally by 2020 (says Top Drawer) MR. has been developed in response to industry demand and will present the ‘UK’s most dynamic’ display of design-led accessories, jewellery, grooming and lifestyle products for gents. Among the names signed so far are: Anchor & Crew, Arne Jacobsen Watches, Wild & Wolf, Thomas Clipper and Ted Baker.

A complimentary trail, aptly named the MR. Lifestyle Trail, has also been designed to guide buyers through a mens’-focussed edit of curated products and key exhibitors.

With the Fashion sector is ‘Capsule’, a showcase of timeless conceptual jewellery and accessory brands such as Sibilia Buenos Aires, Pink Powder, Vanile on The Rock, Eduards Accessories, Narratives the Line and Dukley Jewelry. The UK Jewellery Collections presents a selection of designers who design and make in the UK, among them: Shyla London, Black & Sigi, Esa Evans, esoteric London and Cabbage White England.
