Even Gene Simmons would roll his eyes at some of this garbage. I respect their ability to generate zillions of pounds of cash but this stuff is just landfill. Total waste of money.

Nobody will buy it for such crazy price. Currently they go for 200-300 GBP, which is still outrageously lot, but I guess it's mostly due to the fact how limited it is.

I would love to see this shop. But this could be a little mistake for The Rolling Stones to open a shop. Lot’s of people don’t care for The Rolling Stones and their stuff. For us fans it’s heaven

At the same time, Stones tounge logo is classic and part of pop culture. Many people who are not fans wear Stones merch. I guess the shop is mostly aimed at those "casual fans" or people looking for trendy clothes. Of course I hope that us, hardcore fans, will also find there some nice gems, even like this ltd red vinyl.

Yeah, there seems to be an interesting and probably daring plan to promote The Stones and their legacy at the moment. My initial reaction was that of 'who would be interested in such stuff than the hardcore fans?' but I think the aim is achieve a bigger crowd, the ones of 'casual fans', which potentially is a rather big crowd. At the same time there seems to be a kind of 'play off games' going on - who will be remembered from the pop culture of the past. The Stones seemingly are doing their best to be a kind of house hold name in that sense, like the Beatles have been for ages. The touring has been their biggest selling point for that (and for their 'brand'), but the reality is that it will be soon over. It also looks like that the connection between the band and their home country, and especially London, has been more emphasizied lately. So my impression is that the central location of the store on that legendary street is designed to be a sort of tourist attraction for causal visitors. Especially if they are able to keep a rather high quality in stuff, especially in clothes, they offer.

Who knows if in future the band is mostly remembered for inspiring the Tongue Logo or something....grinning smiley

The Interview: David Boyne, managing director, Bravado

BY TOM BOTTOMLEY - 7TH SEPTEMBER 2020
David Boyne Bravado
David Boyne
As the unveiling of the new Rolling Stones store at 9 Carnaby Street gets closer – set to open to the public this Wednesday 9 September – David Boyne, managing director of brand management and music merchandise powerhouse Bravado, tells us how this “world first” came about and what to expect.

When and how did the initial discussions take place about opening a Rolling Stones store in London?

We have been speaking with The Rolling Stones and their management team for some time about creating really meaningful projects to celebrate their incredible history, but also to grow and develop their fantastic brand still further, as they continue to inspire and engage with their fans around the world. We probably first discussed and thought about a permanent flagship store back in 2018. We looked at various venues and multiple design options. The opening of RS No 9 Carnaby on 9 September will be the culmination of countless Zoom calls and the result of many, many months of hard work.



Why have you decided to give the green light to the new store at this time – when footfall and tourism is down in Central London due to the pandemic?

It is an interesting one. Despite some retailers facing unprecedented challenges over the past six months, we firmly believe this store opening is a super positive move. We are opening an incredible store in a street rich in pop culture for the biggest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world. So, although it goes against the current happenings, it is the perfect time to open a store and deliver such a powerful message, energising the retail landscape and music fans around the world, and it will act as a showcase for London and its rich musical history globally.

Is this the first time you’ve ever done anything as big as this at retail with anyone?

We have worked with some of the biggest retailers in the world – from Selfridges, Macy’s, Bergdorf Goodman, H&M, Primark to Zara – and have also delivered many pop-up activations and experiences, but a standalone, flagship store? Yes, this is as big as it gets.

How would you best describe the new concept?

I think the thing that stands out for me is the overall design. It’s incredibly stylish and contemporary and will make RS No 9 Carnaby a must visit for music and fashion fans alike. Also, we really wanted to make the store experiential and there are many elements that have created a destination where fans can connect and immerse themselves in the music, style and spirit of one of the world’s most iconic and beloved bands. With RS No 9 Carnaby it really does feel like we are breaking new ground for music merchandise. Customers can also design their own T-shirts at the very cool customisation station, where they can choose from exclusive Stones graphics to make something unique.

Why did you choose Carnaby Street for the store?

Carnaby Street has a history that is deeply linked to fashion and music. From the original boutique retailers like Lord John, Lady Jane and Take Six in the 1960’s, to the eclectic mix of retailers we see today, it has led the way as one of the coolest retail spaces in the UK. Add to that the mix of iconic artists that often frequented the area in the 60’s and 70’s like The Stones, The Beatles, The Who, David Bowie, The Kinks and many others – it seemed the obvious destination for the store. However, it is not just about bringing the world to Carnaby Street, but also taking Carnaby Street to the rest of the world, which is incredibly important and has become even more so during coronavirus. With that said, ensuring Stones fans around the globe can enjoy a truly engaging journey online store has been a very important part of the process.

What are the real eye-catching elements of the new store?

Without spoiling all of the surprise elements, as we really want the fans to discover them when they visit the store, my favourite is the soundwave sculpture in the windows. It represents the opening bars of the 1966 Stones classic ‘Paint It Black’ and looks amazing, particularly when it is backlit and viewed from outside the store at night. I think the soundwave is also important, because along with the incredible fashion and merchandise offering, the band’s rich music heritage is absolutely integral to the store and the sculpture is a perfect representation of this.

Rolling Stones

What eye-catching pieces are there product-wise?

I think the one garment that will undoubtedly catch the eye will be the leather jacket. It’s sure to be an iconic piece and it exemplifies the grit and glamour of The Rolling Stones. I am really excited by the ‘Stones Red Collection’, which features great designs inspired by our recently launched official Pantone colour. The collection includes a beautifully embroidered tongue hoodie which will look great when fully merchandised in store. All the product was designed by the talented in-house Bravado design team, referencing the iconic Stones tongue. Red has been synonymous with the band since the tongue logo was designed by John Pasche and first appeared in 1971 on the Sticky Fingers LP. A diverse collection celebrating the Rolling Stones official Pantone colour, along with exclusive limited-edition vinyl, will launch with the store.

What T-shirts do you expect to get the biggest reaction?

Three T-shirts come to mind. Firstly, from our ‘Classic Core Collection’ is the 1972 World Tour design which is one of our historical best sellers. The second shirt is part of our ‘Pantone Red Collection’ and features the timeless classic Rolling Stones tongue logo. However, putting it on the ‘Stones Red’ T-shirt gives it a new, cotemporary feel. The third, and my favourite, is from our ‘Carnaby Core Collection,’ which features our new No 9 design – a fusion of the number 9, as the store is No 9, Carnaby Street, and the Stones tongue. Cool, current and I am sure it will be a best seller.



What collaborations on products will be available in store?

The store offer will include exclusive and contemporary collaboration pieces for all, including fashion, accessories and lifestyle products. Special glassware has been developed with Baccarat, engraved with the Rolling Stones tongue. The store will also feature chairs and scarves from The Soloist, and raincoats and hats from premium Swedish raincoat brand Stutterheim.

Will the store be used to promote future Stones single and album releases? If so, what initially?

Definitely. As a start, the band released the remastered ‘Goats Head Soup’ album on 4 September, and we will be selling exclusive and limited ‘Stones Red’ vinyl in the store. Looking further ahead, the band’s continuing album and single releases will be at the heart of the shop’s pulse, and highly respected British audio brand Bowers & Wilkins speakers will play tracks throughout the space.



What is the background of Bravado and the UK arm?

Bravado first began trading over 40 years ago, predominantly providing services to bands for their live touring activity. In recent years, the company has evolved rapidly to serve a broad range of music, entertainment and brand clients across creative projects, licensing and retail partnerships.

How would you best describe Bravado and what you do as a business?

We have grown and expanded dramatically since being bought by Universal Music Group, the world leader in music-based entertainment in 2007. These unique capabilities make us the leading provider of music merchandise and brand management services. We have an incredible roster of artists and brands signed directly to Bravado, and we exist at the crossroads of music and fashion, helping those artists to bring their creative vision to life, by helping to deliver innovative product across four key channels of distribution – live, retail, licensing and e-commerce. Outside of music, we also work with some of the world’s most dynamic and creative brands to license their properties and products worldwide and with Bravado teams based in over 40 counties, we are a truly global business.

How long have you been working for Bravado and what would you say have been your greatest achievements?

I have just completed 10 years at Bravado. Prior to joining, I spent 25 years in the fashion industry at brands including Timberland and French Connection and most recently, I was MD at Ben Sherman. I love my role at Bravado and the fusion of music and fashion – which have been interwoven in terms of style and trends for most of the last century. The projects that we are able to create, innovate and deliver on also excite me and, because of the depth of our artist roster, every day brings different opportunities – it really is incredibly varied. Our greatest achievement? There have been many. This would have to include some of the fantastic pop-up stores and fan experiences that we have delivered in recent years for the likes of Billie Eilish, Guns ’n’ Roses, Yungblud and Kanye West. In addition, we have launched ground-breaking music-related projects with some of the world’s greatest retailers including Selfridges and Colette in Paris, and I think The Rolling Stones store launch will be right up there. It is an incredible opportunity to deliver one of the world’s most iconic music brands to fans around the world, in a dynamic retail space in London.

Thanks, Christiaan. Among other things, that interview rather well tells that the Bravado deal was a big part of the renewed deal with UMG in 2018. In a way it is the Stones, once again, following the trends, coping with the times and readjusting to the chances in industry. Following the money, one could say...

For those who still digging the musical aspect to be found somewhere there, well, it seems certain that there will be lots of new releases in upcoming years... I suggest many, many deluxe treatments of old albums, a trend for which GHS has now shown an example. Cover them with all merchandise possible..

I watched one of those videos where a teenager listens to a classic rock track for the first time. .... Gimmee Shelter. The kid says at the beginning he had no idea Rolling Stones was a rock band, he thought it was a clothing line with the tongue logo.

He dug the song of course

The overkill usage of the tongue is starting to remind me of the McDonalds 'golden arch's' logo...

Dearie dearie dear eye popping smiley. I live 80 miles West of London and haven’t been there since February. This shop will not persuade me to return any time soon. Love the band and their gigs but this is pure tat and a cash grab. For those who enjoy, enjoy.

Ahead of their time - I just remembered this Stones tongue/McDonalds menu from Switzerland, 2008.

The countdown was an absolute fail. I was watching live, it counted down to zero, then started another countdown which suggests a delay?
