Syd & Mallory was established in 2004 with a store for the past 7 years. We have just celebrated our 7th birthday!
If your store was a person, what would they be like?
We wanted to create a story behind a concept for the label. The idea is a story loosely based on Mallory Knox’s a character Juliet Lewis played in Natural Born Killers and the music icon Syd Barrett from Pink Floyd. It’s the idea of their lives if they were together and the kind of relationship and influence they’d have. We are hugely influenced by the trashy American style and the psychedelic sounds and styles. Everything has a DIY feel hugely from the true idea of a punk lifestyle.
What’s your favourite item for sale atm & why?
Our favourite at the moment is our ‘All Seeing Eye’ fabric designs. The fabric is rather special as it’s the first that we have actually designed and screen printed ourselves. We have made skater dresses, slouch tops and cropped tees with this jersey print. Other fabrics we have designed for garments include the Stamp repeat, Cat dress, Wolves and Eagles.
Any exclusives you want to reveal to us?
We are currently moving into a studio so we can concentrate on designing and manufacturing on a larger scale.
What are your plans for this evening?
Tomorrow we are having a 7th birthday party for our label. There will be fashion performance by Syd and Mallory and Rag Parade Sheffield. Live music from The Death Rays of Ardilla and electronic sounds from Joe Newman. We will be using vinyl only through the decades as a soundtrack to the event which will be held in a disused steel works factory on the outskirts of Sheffield.
Syd & Mallory often have some special edition items on Depop, so get ‘em quick or trot on down to their shop Unit 9, The Forum. 127 - 129 Devonshire St. Sheffield. S3 7SB
Tell about yourself in 8 words I would just say that I am “in love with beautiful things, the art as a whole and the flights of fancy”
What are you coveting atm ? What i’m really coveting in this moment is to finally start and run a vintage shop on my own
What inspires you to get up in the morning ? Definitely a cup of coffee
What was the last book you read ? “Antes que anochezca” by Reinaldo Arenas
What are your plans for this evening ? This evening I am going to visit a museum in Rome (Palazzo delle Esposizioni) with my wonderful husband and my friend Emanuele. Indeed, there’s the best exhibition in town: ”Empire state: New York art now”
