Studio Courtenay X UO MRKT

We're really going all in in September with our in-person events (we're definitely making up for lost time), and this time we'll be a part of Newcastle's UO MRKT at Urban Outfitters!   Straight after the Pop-Up of the North event, we'll have our very own stall at Newcastle's Urban Outfitters store on the 18th and 19th September where we'll be selling some of our favourite SC pieces. You can pick up everything from sustainable accessories (including our new bucket hats and tote bags!) to help give your outfits a quick and easy update, or nab yourself some perfect small gifts like our notebooks - if you're getting a head start on your Christmas shopping we have nothing but respect for you.

Studio Courtenay X Pop Up of the North

Have you ever fancied shopping from us but wanted to check out our pieces in person beforehand? Well now's your chance! If you're based in the North East (or just fancy a little trip up North this September) you can come and shop both our Studio Courtenay pieces and some amazing true vintage from our sister brand, Trendlistr.   Thanks to lockdown we haven't been able to do any of the regular in-person events that we usually do every year, so we are SO excited that our first IRL set up will be at the amazing Pop-Up of the North on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th September. As well as a couple of our super exclusive new Studio Courtenay pieces, we'll also be selling our true vintage...

Meet the Team: Sam Holden

In my spare time I always used to draw my own dress designs and mock them up in fabric using miniature mannequins. When...

Get to Know Our Tote Bags

The humble tote bag is really having it's moment right now. It's been slowly creeping up into the peripherals of fashion for some time, swinging from the arms of celebrities and university students alike, but thanks to the spotlight finally being put on sustainable and slow fashion, the tote bag is truly coming into its own. There's also a lot more to them than meets the eye. They're a lot sturdier than they look so they're ideal for getting those heavy books to class or carting your worldly possessions around on a night out. They also make an ideal alternative to plastic bags, and can be used for carrying everything from clothes to groceries home from the shop. Despite harking...

How to Style a Scrunchie

Fashion is currently having a big 00s revival this S/S21, with everything from bucket hats to Juicy Couture tracksuits making a comeback. Even if you're not feeling the outfit vibes, one way to embrace the trend is with hair accessories. They're easy to style and not too hard on your bank balance, and they let you play with a trend without committing to a full look. Alongside the hair jewellery and butterfly clips (yes, really), one of the 00s favourite hair accessories is here to stay - the scrunchie. Scrunchies are one of the easiest things to style - you can wear them with almost any hair style, and you can embrace every colour, print and fabric you want. Have a...
