So today, we gave the keys back to the landlord, packed up what little stock we had left and headed back across to AnyForty HQ in Hackney after a incredibly successful (yet exhausting) 3 month Pop-Up store stay at Boxpark, Shoreditch.
Big ups everyone who came and visited the store in these 90 odd days, met and hung out with lots of regular family, got to put a lot of faces to familiar online names and got a shit load of new followers to the Church of AnyForty, and for that we salute each and every one of you.
Much love to our interns Lauren and Lisle for helping these last few months, you were both a incredible help and hope you enjoyed your time with us, both onto bigger and better things now, and big ups our man Dominic from Motiiv for holding fort when we needed the odd day off to catch up on non store stuff. Without you 3 we’d of been fooked.
Shout to our Boxpark family like Nhuc and Sophie from China Doll Boutique, Nathan from Abuze London, Mikey from OnePiece, Simon from Etc, Sigourney and Calum from Vans, our main man Gabrielle from Nike and Boxpark maintance geeza Allan, we’re gonna miss you all so much but extra special shout out to our newest mates, collaborators and Boxpark neighbours Hospital Records, made our last month thoroughly enjoyable. Those guys still got two weeks left so swing through and show em some love, we know we’ll be down on a Monday for there instore podcasts. Big up London Elek for the AnyForty shout out on this weeks podcast, check it out hurrrrrrr!
If you didn’t make it down to see the store in the flesh, fear not, thanks to our incredibly talented photographer mate Tom Hull we captured the store forever (forever-ever, forever-ever) in static image form, check it out virtual tour stylee below.
Fear not though, this isn’t the last big thing we’ve got planned for the year ending in 013, more good news soon come, watch this space…
