When Tricot Too closed last August it left a big gap in the market.
Handmade Happiness customers who used to shop there can't find clothes like those pictured locally. The labels Myrine and Me, Out of Xile, Avoca, Rimini, Laurel Vidal, are not often stocked by other stores.
Buying was done in Europe and the distinctive Tricot layered look was totally different to anything found in the High Street. It catered for people wanting a very individual look. Although the prices were a bit high for most pockets hundreds of women shopped at Tricot Too during the twice yearly sales.
And the good thing about clothes like these is that because they are outside of fashion they never look dated; they are timeless and can be worn for ever.
