  • The pop star rubbishes reports that her Lucy in Disguise business is closing down

    Despite the rumours that it’s shutting up shop just ten months after its star-studded opening, Lily Allen’s vintage clothing store Lucy in Disguise is simply switching location.

    The original shop, nestled in the heart of London’s Covent Garden, that Lily and half-sister Sarah Owen launched together has closed its doors after a nine-month temporary stint and will now reside on Lexington Street in Soho from the start of August.

    In the meantime, shoppers can still browse the rails at a pop-up store at 3 Lowndes Court, as well as shop online for vintage clothing and the Lucy in Disguise collection Lily designed with Sarah.

    Rumours have been swirling that the shop has in fact closed down amidst financial problems. However, Lily has denied the reports and released a statement to put the rumours to bed.

    She said: ‘Our Covent Garden space was a nine month pop-up store that helped us successfully launch the Lucy in Disguise concept and this current move was always part of our plan.’

    Lily added: ‘Everyone can now expect the same incredible vintage pieces for sale or hire and our very own ready-to-wear!’

    The Lucy in Disguise flagship store will open its doors on 1st August. You can find it at 48 Lexington Street, London, W1F 0LR.
