Bunka Womens Menswr Retailer
11 reviews of Bunka Womens Menswr Retailer in English
I’ve been a customer of bunka for about 2 years and have always found the shop well stocked and full of stuff I like…mostly gifts as the clothes aren’t really my style but it always seems busy with people trying on stuff. I love the staff and can always have a bit of a laugh with them, definitely my favourite shop in balham!
TERRRIBLE - Everything looks rather cheap and bad taste . The shop appears to have no style whatsoever, just a poor interpretation of shops with much better overall style .I am a big fan of independant shops , embracing their individualism and uniqueness. Sadly this shop has tried to copy the chains stupidly but lacks the vital ingredients .
I went to Balham this weekend and stumbled across this shop. My first impressions from the outside were good but these were quickly shattered upon entering. The staff were rude and made no effort to make you feel relaxed. The products they offered were run of the mill and over priced. The buyers here show no real originality or flare for buying and I felt it was just another bog standard attempt at a life style shop we are seeing increasingly more of these days. There are far better versions of this shop across London and even a few in Balham.
Bunka is hands down the most stylish lifestyle boutique in Balham. Selling womens and mens fashion as well as some great childrens clothes and a huge range of gifts this is a one stop shop for successful retail therapy whether buying for yourself, or for someone else!
For women there’s a gorgeous range of dresses, tops, jeans and bags whether you’re looking for something cool and casual for daytime or something super glamorous for evening… all from indpenedent designers you can be sure you won’t be 'following the top shop crowd’.
The menswear section seems to have expanded lately and is always a winner for my boyfriends birthday presents (think funky G Star T’s and stylish Pepe Shirts and jeans) They also have some really cute kidswear - perfect for new arrivals or christenings and a fabulous range of gifts - something for everyone….
A MUST-VISIT shop for anyone heading to the Balham area!
I love this shop! I cant believe some other reviewers think it is expensive, ok its not cheap but its definitely affordable! I bought a lovely dress in there recently for £59 which I have seen on carnaby street for £65 so I dont think theyre overpricing stuff. Anyway if you dont want to buy clothes they have loads of jewellery and gifts and things, I pop in every couple of weeks and they always have something new in, highly recommended!
Cutting edge style at reasonable prices one review quoted so I thought I must go and try it out being new to Balham. This reviewer must either work there or have more money than sense. The clothes in there are nothing that original and were all very over priced. There were a couple of nice items but £70+ for a top that I have seen for £50 elsewhere…...... Not original or cheap. The shop is badly laid out and there selection of cards and gifts and jewellery leave much to be desired. Avoid unless you want to be disappointed like me.
Such a fabulous place! There really should be more retailers around like this that offer cutting edge style at a reasonable price. Plus its uniqueness ensures that you’re never going to walk into a bar/club and bump into someone looking exactly the same as you which is a risk you take with the likes of Top Shop etc. I live nowhere near Balham but it is always worth the visit. Especially for an emergency outfit for that last minute night out! Whenever I have visited Bunka I have found the staff polite, cheery and always keen to help. There is a really cool vibe to the place. My only gripe is there is not one nearby. Open a shop near me please!!!
Shopping in this place for a girlfriend’s present was a great experience. I walked in and was greeted by the most friendly of staff.
Being a guy I didn’t know what to buy her but was impressed by the range shown in this shop’s window.
I chatted to the staff for a few minutes and they came up with some great ideas. I settled on a bag, some jewellery and accessories but noticed they had a menswear section too so bought myself a tee-shirt. Gift for my girlfriend, gift for me.
Well laid out shop with helpful and friendly staff. Certainly good value for money. You don’t get small independent stores who do thiongs aswell as Bunka in Balham.
Bunka is an independently-run lifestyle boutique that is firmly committed to bringing cutting edge fashion and beautiful gifts and homeware to the local community of Balham.
With strong focus on customer service we aim to please and hope that your experience of shopping at bunka is a good one!
Bunka is basically divided into two sections. In the gifts and homeware section you can expect to find everything from "shabby chic" photo frames and jewellery boxes to ornate chandeliers, gorgeous standing lamps and venetian dressing tables.
In the fashion section we stock a range of brands sourced mainly from Scandinavia, such as St Martins and Snob. Scandinavian fashion is of a consistently high quality, is quirky and different and offers a nice alternative to the normal high st fashions. Bunka also stocks a large range of denim from Pepe Jeans and Freesoul, as well as handbags, hats, and more fashion jewellery than you could possibly imagine!
Hope to see you soon!
Poncy fashion and knick-knack store on Bedford Hill, Bunka is one of those places that I just don’t get. The stuff inside is of a markedly varied quality, some horribly overpriced and some terribly badly chosen. The womens clothing is horrid and I have no idea who buys this stuff. Also, I must say that it’s not my sort of shop anyway, but why can’t these places make some sort of concession to men? The menswear on offer is massively over-priced and aimed at the gullible market.
Oliver Bonas does this sort of thing much better and makes the whole experience terribly worthwhile. I can browse the silly toys whilst my other half looks at jewellery and dresses. But this place just feels so stuffy and over-preening that it made me need to leave very quickly. Also an unfriendly over-intrusive man badgering me was a big no-no. If you need shops like this try Oliver Bonas or the lovely gift shop over the road. Avoid it
