Both the website and the store at 5 Abbey Road next door to the Studios in St. John’s Wood, London will carry a wide range of merchandise from music to books to homewares and clothing along with fun music-inspired gifts.
The range is inspired by Abbey Road Studios, from recording equipment to the building’s architecture and studio features, the famous crossing and the graffiti tributes from devotees who’ve made the pilgrimage from all over the world. In keeping with the Studios’ pioneering role in the development of recorded music there’s also a range of technology based products from respected brands like Sonos and a number of innovative music-making products.
Within the Abbey Road branded range there are several different design themes including a range of products with geometric prints based on the Studios’ new brand identity and a range based on six specially created illustrations featuring the Studios and some of vintage equipment found within.
Speaking of the launch, Catherine Smith, Abbey Road’s Retail Manager said “We’ve created a range of bespoke products that represent the history of the studios as well as selecting the best of artist merchandise and, of course, some of the incredible music that has been recorded here. We can’t wait to welcome music fans from all over the world through our doors.”
The store interior which reflects recognisable elements of the historic studios was created by acclaimed London-based retail designers Lumsden Design, who’ve previously designed retail spaces for other cultural institutions including Tate Modern, MoMA, the V&A and the National Theatre.
The store will feature a rotating display of related memorabilia and artefacts such as vintage microphones from Abbey Road’s vast collection.
With a variety of products and pricepoints the range offers ideal Christmas gifts for music fans. Buy in-store or online atwww.shop.abbeyroad.com.
