Friday 2 March 2018 we launched ourselves, and a new collection, under a staircase that might just be the cooler than Harry Potter’s first room.
103 Sir Lowry Rd, Cape Town - the location of a Research Unit culture shock and new (ad)venture - our new corner.
RU you in it?
Get your mind out of the gutter, it’s not that type of corner you’ll find us on, but rather in Corner Store. An astounding, richly cultured platform and space for creativity and vision to take its highest form and cross the paths of the passionate.
“Born out of mutual respect and a shared vision, Corner Store CPT is a common space and flagship store for Twobop and Sol-Sol Menswear, among others. Corner Store offers the most exclusive selections from the respective brands it houses, first, as well as a carefully curated selection of local and international product that not only compliments the clothing in the store, but whose brand philosophies are in line with our ideas surrounding clothing culture in South Africa.”
Corner Store was seen as a perfect fit to house our White Label collection - a range made solely using Ripstop material and seatbelt straps with only slight hints of leather! Sporting backpack’s, duffle bags, totes and the trending walking bag, White Label is a completely unique sphere of Research Unit to emerge on the scene – RU in our corner yet?!
This collection, being showcased in such a vibrant and influential location, is a perfect depiction of the creative diversity of the strong and vision-driven minds behind the brand – and it’s just downright cool! We at RU truly felt that Corner Store was the perfect place to launch, and house, our frequent-traveller collection because of the strong influence and social presence possessed, as well as the solid personal relationships with some of the amazing individuals in and behind the store.
Welcome to the start of a new adventure – there is only one thing left to ask ; RU in our Corner?
