Showcasing and supporting independent shops both online and on the high street are very important to us here at Supermarket Sarah, and our latest collaboration does just that and more! We’ve brought together The Outsider Motorcycle Club; an independent fashion boutique with local rock band, NIFE to create our latest wall.
The Outsider Motorcycle Club can be found on Hackneys Mare Street. Richie Garner is the proud owner of this store, which is home to a rare collection of vintage jackets, boots and other biker paraphernalia. We brought in local North London band NIFE to model some of Richie’s wares.
We shot the wall in Richie’s store with the help from the very talented photographer Ollie Wright. It was a super day creating Richie’s wall and the band and Richie really meshed well together, sharing a similar aesthetic and love for music and fashion. If you find yourself on Mare Street anytime soon then pop in to see Richie’s truly unique store. With such an eclectic mix of vintage rock paraphanelia we’re sure that you’ll find an absolute treasure! As for NIFE you’ll most certainly be seeing them on the festival circuit this summer.
We hope you enjoy their collaboration! Till next time.

Here at Supermarket Sarah HQ we are super excited to introduce to you the wonderful Tiny Track and the designer behind the brand, Ina Shin. Ina has created a beautiful Supermarket Sarah wall which we’ve just launched on our site. It’s a fun and colourful delight showcasing Ina Shin’s beautifully hand-crafted accessories. Ina combines contemporary style with traditional craftsmanship and is inspired by retro culture, parquetry and the materials themselves. Originally from Seoul, South Korea Ina has been living and working in London for couple of years having studied ceramic art and 3D design through university. ”I came to make some works out of my practical approach to stuff that I love; involving little obsession for tools and material”. Check out Ina of Tiny Track’s wall and click to buy her beautifully crafted and unique designs.
Happy shopping guys!

This summer SS has been on a roll with Festivals! ‘TEAM SS’ were super excited to be invited to create props and a super hay bail wall for the main events space at The Cock and Bull Festival in Chippenham. The festival itself is set in the middle of a stunning, working farm in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The farm is normally home to 3,000 sheep who make way for one blissful weekend of great music! Including We Were Evergreen, Sheelan Gig, Dizraeli and the small Gods and many more. All in aid of a super charity - Jamie’s Farm – that exists to transform the lives of vulnerable children in challenging urban schools, by providing a unique combination of ‘farming, family and therapy’ programme.
Supermarket Sarah created life size 2D farm yard animals which were branded and lit up for the night time with LED’s. Real Supermarket Sarah branded sheep also roamed about!
Many Thanks to Henry Trew, Ruth Shepherd, Jamie, the coolest farmer ever! - and his very happy helpers, Daisy, Ross Grindley and photographer Oliver Wright for making it happen! and to TRAIDremade for making us some super customised and very useful wellies!

I love the stories behind all the vintage clothes that TRAID sell and have long been a fan of their stores both in London and when they had a store in Brighton, which is where I went to University.
Clare Farrell’s latest collection ‘REMADE’ is as you’d expect all made from recycled clothes.
Clare tie dyes, dip dyes, cuts and customises clothes which are no longer wanted and brings them back to life. I’m loving her mix and match Leggings and Bum bags! It was amazing working with Clare, her energy shines into the clothes she makes.
Do check out Clare’s summer delights in store, and soon online and on Supermarket Sarah.com
BIG THANKS to team TR who were so open and fun to work with!
Fashion Designer herself Claire Farrell,
TRAID TEAM: Leigh McAlea, Lyla Patel Reynolds,
The amazing prop designer Lizzie King and Louise Mulahy
all whom made my cling filmed card board box wall dream extravaganza a reality!

Thank you LCC for a super Green Week 2013! I was invited back this year to create a wall for TRAID at London College of Communication.
TRAID wanted to show the process of how their clothes start from unwanted items, get sorted in sorting depots and are then up cycled by their designers and sold in their stores for added value, helping to reduce landfill and develop sustainable livelihoods all over the world.
I interpreted this as TRAID MAKE UNHAPPY CLOTHES HAPPY!
so Sophie Abboud, a student from London College of Fashion helped me create a WONDER WALL of clothes which started sad and limp and then gradually became brightly coloured and dancing! we dotted the wall with some photos of the process and showed flying bird scissors swoop in to do the up-cycling to make sense of it all.
There was all sorts going on through out the day and Traid and Patrice John-Baptiste from Open Wardrobe had a great workshop going on customising clothes.
