(Manchester UK) Smithfield is an independent menswear shop that had an agenda.
The shop, boasting a striking, interesting and unique interior, made from 100% recycled materials, by sustainable designer Peter Masters, will stock a host of Scandinavian and European brands including: Wood Wood, Spitfire Design, On Tour, Organic label Knowledge Cotton Apparel, Dunderdon and local brand Three Crowns, as well as selected music titles from local labels Fat City Recordings and Electrik Souls.
Peter Masters of Burnt Toast, designed the shop around cardboard boxes, shipping tubes and all sourced from Romiley Board Mill. All the wood in construction came from MRC, a local Manchester timber recycling company. I think the idea is genius. Taking an everyday object and use it in a new way that benefits the function and form of the shop.
