A History of Richmond Classics
Richmond Classics was born on April 1st 1988, a small store (1500 sq ft) over two floors situated in a secondary position just off Bournemouth square at 9 Richmond Hill, hence the origins of our name .
Richmond Classics now Celebrating our 32nd anniversary, over the years we have built up a reputation as the destination for the innovative fashion conscious customers of the south of England and beyond.
Over time we (Richmond Classics) have been featured in various fashion magazines; Arena, FHM and the iconic lads magazine Loaded - with our strap-line "Wear to look the dogs bollocks" (A slang term for the best) using our infamous Staffordshire bull terrier "spesh" in our adverting campaigns. read more>
Founded in 1983 by Franco Moschino, the Italian luxury fashion house became famous for their colourful, innovative and unconventional designs that quickly became a hit amongst celebrities. Now headed up by Jeremy Scott the brand has catapulted back into the fashion spotlight with their popular logoed designs, slogan t-shirt and pop-culture referencing.
Carrying both Moschino Couture and Love Moschino in store we have an extensive range of Moschino accessories and Moschino clothing for the fashion forward thinking individual. Moschino will always be a favourite at Richmond Classics.
Richmond Classics Buying Team first came across Moose Knuckles Three Years Ago at The infamous Italian Mens Designer Fashion Trade show ,Pitti Immagine Uomo held in Florence twice a year showcasing new innovative and exciting up and coming brands as well as established stalwarts the likes of Canada Goose , Blauer. Woolrich, and Parajumpers.
Moose Knuckles stood out as the next must have outerwear brand amongst them and is now a favourite with both celebrities and the terraces here in the UK, mainly due to its high quality design and tongue in cheek attitude towards its competitors .Rather than quoting Thermal insulation values they simply say "Moose Knuckles Jackets are WAF"!!!!
. Moose Knuckles is the go to brand of choice for the cast of Top Boy , Ashley Walters as well as in the music industry Giggs and more recently Young and Bugsey,(UK) Young Thug from across the pond (USA).
