From the moment you walk inside Auteur Store the sense of heritage is palpable. Standing over ever-cool and always-in-demand Beech Road, Chorlton’s favourite collection of independent stores, bars and restaurants, the interior design is more than in-keeping with this neighbourhood. A combination of mid-
century elegance and timeless sophistication, the address makes no secret of the fact minimal stock is held, but everything has been expertly curated and carefully considered, making for one of Manchester’s best modern vintage destinations.

Founder Alex Otterwell’s passion for clothes and fashion history, his penchant for subcultures and love of Americana are clear throughout, and these interests have directed both the look and direction of Auteur Store. On a mission to “sell items with a story”, pieces have been chosen for a “yesteryear influence”. For
example, Devon-based heritage brand Eastman Leathers, which is behind stunning aviation-style threads. A number of exclusives are also here, such as the cult Japanese operations Pherrows and Belafonte, which you won’t find in any other Manchester retailers.

Other names to look out for and take home include Lawford Clothing and fellow Far Eastern designers
Boogie Holiday, Yarmouth Oilskins, which conceives and creates incredible coastal workwear, and Toast, a British company which you can’t pick up anywhere else right now. Set against walls lathered in a rich,
luxurious green paint with hand-finished gold detailing, teak cabinets, re-pro classic iron radiators, and industrial enamel light fittings, softened with cosy rugs and 1950s inspired artwork, Auteur Store is an unforgettable and incredibly personal shopping experience. Doors are open from 10AM to 5PM Tuesday to Saturday, and items are also available online, where you’ll find a range of gift ideas showcasing a hand-picked lifestyle range, which runs from body wash to soaps, candles to fragrances, adds to the overwhelming allure of this emporium of vogue.
