The Commons is a multi label concept created for specially curated designer and vintage, preloved clothing, archival designs and accessories.
We also house a range of independent labels and offer a space for emerging designers a new retail space and for things.
We put a values driven lifestyle at the core of everything we do.
The Commons constructs a new value system for our clothing. By offering an exchange-based platform, you have the opportunity to engage one on one with our buyers, to better understand how we should be valuing clothes in today’s society, and alter your purchasing patterns for the better.
Emphasis on quality, uniqueness and accessibility is high on our priority list.
We buy items that are forever part of your wardrobe. We are proud to circulate items from designers such as Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Dries Van Noten. Raf Simons, Comme des Garcons, Kenzo, Isabel Marant, Jil Sander, Prada, Celine and many more, alongside excellent quality vintage.
By selling clothes online and only in our own stores, we avoid traditional retail markups. With a slow beating heart we create all of our shopfront creations, to minimise any impact on our bricks and mortar establishments.
Textile waste is a consequence of all fashion. But it shouldn't be. We should not shy away from this fact, but understand it in order to change it. As we buy more, we begin to value our garments less and less, and those garments we purchase fall to the wayside.
