Marc Jacobs at Ollybear

Marc Jacobs has just landed at Ollybear and the collection is simply stunning! The new designer range is exclusive to Ollybear's Buchanan Galleries store.

From Portugal to Scotland for artists, Lita and Martine

Hailing from Portugal and now living in Edinburgh, Lita Oliveira and Martine Teresa are designers taking the jewellery world by storm through The Scottish Design Exchange, here at Buchanan Galleries.

While Lita creates unique, affordable jewellery and accessories using resin products from eco-friendly materials, Martine is building a reputation for her imaginative use of cork (described now as the new leather).

From handbags to purses, Martine creates pieces that ethical consumers crave, and because her cork is sourced in Portugal, she is making an economic contribution to both Scotland and to her Portuguese homeland – something that gives her a great deal of personal pride.

Whilst busy crafting their unique designs, their jewellery didn’t always garner much attention, however after being introduced to the Scottish Design Exchange, things really started to take off for the pair.

“We were struggling to make a living from our jewellery, says Lita, ‘market after market, stall holder rivalries, high rents, low returns. It was tough and although we had our moments, it was only when we were introduced to Lynzi at the Scottish Design Exchange that things really started for us as artists.”

To learn more of the duos story visit the Scottish Design Exchange website or drop by the store located on the first floor within Buchanan Galleries, where their work is available to buy, alongside a whole host of other independent artists and designers.

Who knows you may well bump into them during one of their forays into the shop.

Corks are popping for new Demijohn pop-up shop

Such is the demand for their artisan liqueurs, spirits, whiskies, oils and vinegars, especially in the run-up to Christmas, that Scottish liquid deli, Demijohn decided to expand with with a new pop-up shop in Buchanan Galleries.

With a very visual and inviting shop décor, complete with large glass demijohns perched on beech shelves which come from ancient fallen beech trees from Fife, the Demijohn pop-up is the perfect place to source innovative and delicious Christmas gifts. With their ethos of encouraging customers to try before buying, this shop is a real pick-me-up for weary shoppers in the centre of Glasgow.

Going to Demijohn is to most adults what walking into a sweet shop is to children – shelves of delicious tasting and sounding drinks of colours and strengths from Bramble Whisky Liqueur to Seville Orange Gin, Rhubarb Vodka to Butterscotch Cream Liqueur. With staff knowledgeable and passionate about the products, there is no end of cocktails, drinks and recipes that can be made using Demijohn’s products. Such is their passion that at times they head to the hedgerows to collect sloes for the Sloe Gin, elderflowers for Elderflower Vinegar and brambles for Bramble Scotch Whisky Liqueur.

Come along and try the delicious ranges for yourself. You'll find us on the first floor, next to Regis.

Age is no barrier for SDX artist, David Cochrane

Age is just a number, as proved by artist John Donald Cochrane, whose paintings light up Buchanan Galleries newest retail arrival – The Scottish Design Exchange.

At 92, some would understand that it’s time to take life easier, however the artist is an exception to the rule. John Donald Cochrane (he likes to be called Donald) describes his need to keep producing works as a disease. “I just want to paint,” he says with utter conviction. “I might slow down and take a rest in 10 years, or,” he adds with a smile, “maybe I won’t.”

Donald’s paintings were not always sought after, however after being introduced to Lynzi Leroy, founder of the Scottish Design Exchange, Donald’s paintings now attract a great deal of attention - and you too can discover what all the fuss is about, here within the centre.

Painting alone within his small sheltered home, Donald produces inspirational work bringing to life a combination of Scottish landscapes and abstract works, perfect as a stunning gift or as a treat to yourself.

To learn more of Donald’s story visit the Scottish Design Exchange website or drop by the store located on the second floor within Buchanan Galleries, where Donald’s work is available to buy, alongside a whole host of other independent artists and designers.
