Sloane Stanley has announced the return of the ‘King’s Road: The Art and Mystery’ exhibition following a successful showcase last year.
The exhibition showcases a variety of materials, photographs, and artefacts in a 1,444 sq ft space on King’s Road, and emphasises the cultural, historical heritage and relevance of the King’s Road as the destination enters a new centenary, exploring 400 years of history from the beginnings of Chelsea House to the foundations of Chelsea as a recreational space.
The exhibition will run until the end of March.
Also joining the King’s Road is upcycled cashmere brand Nearly New Cashmere Co, which rescues thousands of discarded 100% cashmere items annually.
Open until the end of March at 340 King’s Road, the 1,178 sq ft King’s Roads store features a variety of menswear, womenswear, childrenswear and accessories, all handpicked to ensure the best possible quality.
Hannah Grievson, property director at Sloane Stanley, commented on the openings: “It is wonderful to have these two incredible concepts join the King’s Road as we continue to diversify our high street and add a sense of culture and inspiration to the destination.
“‘King’s Road: The Art and Mystery’ celebrates the importance of the local area’s history and provides a different offer for our visitors.
“Partnering with small, creative businesses has always provided us with an opportunity to share the culture of our fantastic community and, in the case of brands such as Nearly New Cashmere Co, highlight the importance of sustainability and protecting our planet. We are excited to see these two unique concepts thrive throughout their pop-up tenancies.”
Ian Foster, creator of ‘King’s Road: The Art and Mystery’ exhibition added: “Sloane Stanley are great collaborators; I am excited to have returned to the King’s Road and continue to share my story of this unique and brilliant location.
“The prime space within the heart of Chelsea is perfect to showcase the history of our community. The cultural roots of the King’s Road are fascinating, and I know from the success of last year that it’s something the local community and visitors alike will want to experience.”
