Ruffians Launches in Liberty!
Opening Saturday 26 August industry-leading Barber, Ruffians, is launching its fifth barbershop and men’s grooming store in Liberty London, the capital’s most iconic emporium. The new 650 sq. ft. Ruffians space will offer bespoke haircuts, cut throat razor shaves, beard trims and men’s facials 7 days a week.
Liberty London has relaunched and expanded the menswear department with its biggest ever investment in its men’s floor. A corner stone of the menswear project has been the partnership with award-winning specialist Ruffians as its new resident barber.
Designed with both a nod to Ruffians’ and Liberty London’s heritage, the space features exposed brickwork, wood panelling and Scottish oak throughout, as well as the iconic Takara Belmont barber chairs in Ruffians’ signature blue. A dedicated coffee bar has been created for the barber’s customers, with a seasonally changing menu of drinks, including Ruffians’ own ‘Half Cut Ale’ and a selection of Union drip-cup coffee. Ruffians and Liberty London will be working together to host a range of events, drinks evenings, music nights and art exhibitions.
Gina Ritchie, Director of Buying Liberty London, says “We are so excited to welcome Ruffians to our newly relaunched Menswear floor at Liberty this August. For us there was no better partner for the new space, they represent great craftsmanship, passion for what they do and a have a genuine sense of community – all qualities we also aspire to every day at Liberty.”
Andrew Cannon, co-founder of Ruffians comments “We are delighted to be working with an iconic British retailer and are very proud to be bringing the Ruffians brand into the new Liberty London Menswear department. To be able to grow our and our shop foot print and create a unique space within Liberty London is a challenge which we are relishing! Our client’s experience is at the heart of everything we do and working with the Liberty London team we have been able to create unique space with six chairs and a dedicated coffee bar for our customers.”
