A Day in The Life

Universal Music, Bravado and the Rolling Stones have combined to create one of London’s must visit destinations, a store to push the boundaries of retail as you know it. Where better to be located than right in the heart of Iconic Carnaby Street, the subculture playground from the Swinging 60’s to the present day.

Never seen before Audio and Visuals, around the store, will help us tell the story of the Rolling Stones - accompanied by a unique product package which will allow us to surprise and delight our customers.

Visitors can take a journey through the history of the band with the help of artist sculptures, glass showcases and hidden alcoves come sound booths, that combine to create a fully encompassing experience. ‘Hero’ products will be displayed in the basement as statements of intent as we will be collaborating with some of the most exciting brands across the Globe to ensure that we give our customers fresh and exciting new products, throughout the year. The customisation station adds another interactive element to the experience, meaning our customers can express their creative sides and leave our store with a truly original purchase.
Our store is the first of its kind and is a must visit destination for all fans of the Rolling Stones from around the World.
