Meet the Team: Brighton Store

Posted on May 26 2015

Passionate about vintage and everything that it stands for, our staff are key to the Beyond Retro world! We had a quick cuppa with Davey from our Brighton store, to get to know his top tips for shopping vintage and what inspires him the most.

Davey

Hi Davey! So, tell us a bit about yourself…

I’ve been at Beyond Retro now for around 5 years and have been inspired by some fantastic characters. I started in the Brick Lane store and developed an interest in 80s hair metal, until I lost my love for ‘guy liner’ and made my way to the seaside where I fell in love with Brighton culture.

Be it music or fashion, there are so many influences within Brighton and the company. Beyond Retro allows you to express yourself and feel comfortable in your own skin (Tattoos and Taxidermy are my vice!), which is something I want to acquaint my daughter with; ‘if it makes you happy, then wear it.’

Describe Brightonian style in three words…

Expressive, inspired and unique. It’s as if Brighton is trapped in its own little bubble and everyone within it feels comfortable to express themselves freely. That’s what gives Brighton a chunk of its charm.

What's a staple piece for a Brighton wardrobe?

There’s a ton of individuals in Brighton, trends set left, right and centre… but there’s a huge appeal for suede at the moment. A love of 70’s whether it be tasselled jackets or waistcoats, is a wardrobe must have.

Who is your icon?

It used to be Noel Fielding, his quirky take on fashion and clash of patterns would ideally seem like a fashion disaster but come together like a piece of art. These days it’s the people that surround me on a daily basis: friends, co-workers, and the general influences of Brighton.

Do you have a favourite era? 

Seventies: Prints and Suede. What more needs to be said?

What's the go-to vintage item in your wardrobe?

Leather tassel jacket, unique short fringing, perfect fit but as not to overwhelm my relationship with it. You’ll often see me prowling around in my motorcycle jacket.

And finally… Any top tips for shopping vintage?

Don’t be scared to try anything on, what’s the worst that could happen? If you like it on the hanger, have fun. Sometimes the most bizarre garments make the best outfits, you’ll come in looking for one thing and leave with something unexpected.
