Damon Albarn Starts Online Store 'West Town' With Daughter Missy Albarn

Damon Albarn has started a shop called West Town with his daughter Missy Albarn

The Blur frontman, 52, is running an eclectic, eccentric homeware and accessories shop with Missy, who he shares with artist Suzi Winstanley. 

The shop named West Town, which is located in London's fancy area of Westbourne Grove, sells bags, posters, artwork, T-shirts and fabrics. Their website is quirky and dark, and features a variety of eccentric items sourced by the frontman. 

Official documents filed with Companies House have Damon, Suzi and Missy, 21, as co-directors of parent company Westtown 11. 

While non-essential shops have had to temporarily shut due to Covid, West Town still sells its wares online.

Its website states its mission, saying: "This is not a shop. "This is a magpies' nest of the collected, collated, agitated, acquired, borrowed, found, bought, lost and forgotten. 

"This is a space dreamt up. A space for all the fabrics, sounds, shapes and colours that we've seen or heard. All the fabrics, sounds, shapes and colours that we’ve seen or heard. A counterpoint to pointless spaces, a space for gorgeous things".

West Town is a collective, curating and selling homewares, art, clothing and curiosities from across the globe.

"Magpie" was also a Blur b-side which can be listened to here:

Missy Albarn was born in 1999 and also appears to run a clothing and mask company via Instagram called Saltman Clothing Co. Images show her modelling the clothes and masks.
