Have you ever been to Space NK? If not, then this is the perfect time for you to start. The store which started in the UK has 62 stores across the pond and 21 Space NK apothecaries in the United States – 6 free-standing and 15 shop-within-shops in selected Bloomingdale’s stores. All the stores are staffed with highly trained skincare specialists and makeup artists who give each customer unbiased, expert advice, across 60+ different brands, prescribing personalized beauty solutions.
A little background on the brand from owner Nicky Kinnaird…
I started in 1993 with just one store in a former banana warehouse in London’s Covent Garden. This first Space NK wasn’t only about beauty; it was a lifestyle store selling designer clothing, accessories, cult beauty products and had one of London’s first juice bars. For me beauty is a natural extension of fashion – makeup and hair trends start on the catwalk and increasingly skincare needs to be approached from the inside out as well as the outside in. Luckily this struck a chord with our customers and 3 years down the line it was time to focus on what was clearly the success story – Space NK apothecary. Who really buys from just one brand? Take a peek inside any make up bag, or check out your bathrooms and you will quickly see that they are populated with products from many different brands. People buy products that are best suited to them regardless of company of origin. This is a huge part of the Space NK philosophy.
Now that you know….don’t you want to go there??? I thought so, onto the good stuff!! This Wednesday, February 20th (that’s TOMORROW!!), Space NK will host “A Master Class in Spring Beauty” at all 22 US locations.
