An eclectic London-based fashion and homeware store is coming to Northern Ireland for the first time.

Oliver Bonas is set to open on Belfast’s Upper Lisburn Road in April.

Named after its founder, the retailer designs, makes and sells women’s clothing and accessories, jewellery, furniture and gifts.

The company started with ‘Olly’, as he’s known by his staff, bringing back gifts for friends from his travels abroad. He opened his first shop in Fulham in 1993, repainted by his friends with Olly behind a second-hand till. Now there are 50 Oliver Bonas stores across England and Scotland.

The firm is expanding to open five new shops, with the Lisburn Road spot — at 597 to 599 next to Barnam’s Cafe — the first in Northern Ireland.

A spokesman told the Belfast Telegraph the projected opening date is at the beginning of April.

Recruitment is due to begin soon, with jobs paying the Living Wage of £7.85 per hour.

The latest lines include clothing described as “urban utility with a feminine twist” and a colourful collection of compact furniture.
