Autumn 2018

Our New Autumn Collections are now almost complete.

As well as our usual collections we have some lovely Woollen Coats from Denmark and Beautiful Shoes and Boots from Milan.

We are currently updating the imagery on our site, so please return in a few days time to view our lovely labels!

Spring and Summer 2018

We are now showing our lovely Spring and Summer 2018 collections.

We are bursting at the seams with colour as well as lots of Navy Blue, Red and White which seems to be a very big trend this Summer which also incorporates lots of Navy Blue and Ivory Stripes!

As usual we have sourced lots of lovely natural, soft garments in some very exciting and unique patterns and designs.

Our Occasion wear is varied, we have some very plain soft and flowing dresses, some beautiful vintage style floral dresses and some very elegant structured silks in several colours including Magenta Pink and Silver!

Our Gallery reflects just a small selection of our lovely collections, shoes and Millinery!

We do look forward to seeing you and hope that it will be an enjoyable experience for you. We never compromise on quality and spend a great deal of time trying to source garments that are very different to those that are found on the high street, sadly this comes at a cost, our clothes are generally slightly more expensive, however, hopefully they will be an investment for years to come!

Autumn and Winter 2017

We are now showing our lovely Autumn and Winter collections. It is an exciting time as not only have we reinstated Pret from Sweden, we have also, yet again, added a couple of new labels; Badoo from Greece, a selection of lovely, stylish and versatile dresses and tunics made from very comfortable fabrics with subtle embellishments and, Adventures des Toiles from France, dresses and separates made from lovely soft and mainly natural fabrics using very colorful patterns, each 'story' being inspired by encompassing an individual artists creation. Our turquoise blue collection designed by artist Alian Vaissiere ~ Riding on the Seas and the grey collection designed by Isabelle Herve ~ Around the World!

The Paule Vasseur collection is predominantly turquoise blue and cherry red for Autumn and Winter, silver with very ornate ivory embroidery for early Spring and Summer 2018. The collection, as usual, also includes some very useful and lovely 'stand-alone' jackets.

The Brunate Autumn/Winter collection is amazing, this small family company from Milan never let us down, always producing the most beautiful and comfortable hand-made shoes that fit and feel like little gloves! This season we have extended our collection to include some fabulous long boots!

We have a great selection of Lebek and Weill Winter coats.

We do look forward to seeing you and hope that it will be an enjoyable experience for you. We never compromise on quality and spend a great deal of time and effort trying to source garments that are very different to those that can be purchased on the high street, but sadly this comes at a cost, our clothes are generally slightly more expensive, however, they will be unique, timeless and an investment for many years to come!

Spring and Summer 2017

Our Spring and Summer 2017 collections are now complete. Our shop is full of wonderful colours with lots of lovely dresses for all occasions!

Twenty One B, Salisbury adds a New Dimension

Posted 10th May 2013

Following our move to larger premises last autumn we have taken the opportunity to add a new dimension to Twenty One B. We now have some magnificent pieces of abstract art on our walls which add greatly to our ambience and to your shopping experience and which are also for sale. These are the work of Barbara Yeomans, an English born artist who originally trained and graduated as a milliner and fashion designer from Cheltenham Art College, and who has extremely fond memories of Salisbury. She has lived in Florida for many years and her talents have led her into new avenues producing this magnificent artwork. Barbara will be presenting her work at a special evening event on 24th May to coincide with the opening of the Salisbury International Arts Festival. Keep an eye on this news page for further information.

We will be introducing further pieces of Barbara's work (in addition to those already on display) in a Gallery upstairs, from 10.00am on the 24th May 2013 and cordially invite you to come and share a glass of wine with us from 5.00pm until 8.00pm when Barbara will be delighted to meet you and discuss her work which is also for sale.

We do have a good stock of this current season’s collection including the very popular ‘Old Gold’, ‘Pigeon’ and ‘Bleu Riviera’. As always the colours and silks are so very versatile they are suitable for any season. It is always choosing the right colour and style to suit that usually makes the decision!

For those ladies who do not want the silks, we have now taken another exclusive label, this being ‘Condici’. This stunning collection comprises mainly of two pieces – dress and jacket. We have just recently taken delivery of this first Spring Summer 2010 selection. You can view it through the ‘Labels Page’ of this website! Also, our alterations policy for ‘Condici’ is the same as the ‘Paule Vasseur’. Your chosen outfit will be perfectly fitted to you by our own, very valuable, ‘in house tailoress’ at no additional charge to you*.

*with the exception of reduced garments

As well as supplying matching millinery for all of our collections, we will also be able to provide several designs of satin shoes which can then be dyed to your desired colour.

For those of you who like a bargain, we presently have a permanent ‘Sale Corner’ where you will find some very lovely and affordable garments including some beautiful Evening and Occasion wear.

We at ‘Twenty One B’ wish all of our customers a wonderful Christmas and fantastic New Year and would also like to convey our deepest appreciation for their continuing support during what has been an interesting and somewhat challenging year!

Our Summer Clearance sale is now in 'full swing' and includes a small amount of Paule Vasseur garments.

The Autumn and Winter Collections are arriving fast and furiously and include a couple of new arrivals to sit alongside our already familiar labels. Please refer to to website or telephone us to obtain further information.

The arrival of the new Autumn and Winter Silks is imminent. It comprises of beautiful jewel colours which include Cobalt Blue, Gold and Wine. If you are wishing to view the collection, it is advisable to telephone us before hand and we will inform you as to which of the vibrant colours have arrived.
