Oliver Bonas

Founded by: Oliver Tress

Oliver Bonas is an independent British lifestyle store, designing our own take on fashion and homeware.

Established in 1993 by founder and Managing Director Oliver Tress, Oliver Bonas has evolved from Olly bringing back interesting pieces from his travels abroad, into an ever-expanding team of creative individuals.

Over two decades on, Oliver Bonas has evolved from curating others’ designs to creating our own. Our team of designers now take Olly’s exploratory spirit and channel it into our fashion and homeware collections. We are inspired by the alchemy of great design, fresh thinking, and the belief that design has the power to positively affect how we feel. New designs land in store and online every week.

We are a growing privately owned independent company, with 60 stores across London and the UK. Our company values are “Work Hard, Play Hard and Be Kind” and we aim to Be Kind in every aspect of our company life. As a design-led British retailer, we strive to do business in a way that has integrity, is ethical and doesn’t negatively impact others or the environment.

We are extremely proud to be a Living Wage Employer and we became the first British High-Street Retailer to be accredited by the Living Wage Foundation. At Oliver Bonas, we are committed to sourcing the highest quality products from many countries with diverse cultures and economies. We value long-standing trusting relationships with our suppliers and we commit to working in a transparent and open manner.
