Designer-heavy vintage store of over two decades standing, specialising in young fashions
Many Bristolians will be familiar with BS8 on Park Street; a shop that's been central to the local independent scene for over 20 years, and under the same ownership throughout. Having previously operated over multiple floors, BS8 has more recently decided to forego concessions and concentrate its goodness into one – still expansive – floor of up-to-the-minute young fashion.
The vintage section at the rear is a key part of the store’s current identity. Thanks to an ever-growing list of nation-wide suppliers, it now stocks a wide variety of vintage styles, encompassing classic and cool in one fell swoop. The stock is hand-picked, with a focus on quality and street style trends; a discerning approach which yields rare designer gems – from Balmain to Versace – at a bargain price. If you’re after genuine leather or sheepskin jackets, Levi’s jeans and jackets or one-off printed silk shirts, make BS8 your first port of call.
Catering to its young customer base, the store hosts local DJs from noon-5pm every Saturday, adding extra liveliness to a busy weekend shopping experience.
