Mods in the Mansion

Mods in the Mansion

Apparently, Ben Sherman does more than shirts for fifteen year old boys with dodgy haircuts. And to show us lot in Manchester just what they’re about, the ultimate British brand is branching out from its swinging sixties London home, picking up its moped and whizzing up the M1.

To launch its new store at the Trafford Centre, the first stand alone store outside of London, Ben Sherman is introducing a new interior design concept, named and inspired by ‘Mods in the Mansion’. Think sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll followed by afternoon tea and a stroll on the lawn. Think The Rolling Stones, John and Yoko and the Gallaghers, swinging from the chandelier and sinking the Rolls Royce in the swimming pool.

Inspired by all those who have drunk, smoked, laughed and taken the odd herbal bath in the country, ‘Mods in the Mansion’ draws its influences from an eclectic mix of inheritance furniture pieces, antique shop impulse buys and platinum discs.

Under the direction of in-house Creative Director Mark Maidment, the Ben Sherman team have been scouring the country to source one-off vintage pieces from house-clearances, and produce bespoke furniture upholstered with Union Jacks, antique frames customised in a Ben Sherman Style, and chandeliers and Chesterfields that look as though they’ve survived their fair share of wild parties.

To celebrate Ben Sherman’s new venture at the Trafford Centre, Manchester Confidential has managed to get hold of a few goodies to give away. One lucky reader will receive a Ben Sherman Base Ball hat from the new collection, a Ben Sherman Leather and Brushed steel men’s bangle, a Ben Sherman Umbrella and a Boxed set of 5 cotton socks with BS logo, just in time to fill your Christmas stocking.

To be in with a chance of winning the Ben Sherman goodies, fill in your details below.
