London’s Coco de Mer has won the coveted Independent Retailer of the Year award.
It offers multiple categories to customers from its Monmouth Street store, including private label and branded lingerie, latexwear, bondage and sex toys.
The retailer, which reported a 31% increase in boutique sales in 2015, constantly strives to excite and engage with new and existing customers through live in-store entertainment and erotic education.
The UKLA panel was particularly impressed by the fact that Coco de Mer is an avid supporter of new and emerging brands, stocking lingerie by Loveday London, Edge o’Beyond and Tamzin Lillywhite.
Shortlisted finalists in the Independent Retailer of the Year category included Ayla Rose, Dolci Follie, Odyssey Boutique and Mish.
