Objets de Dèsir is a lifestyle boutique selling jewellery, art, homeware and fashion, and is situated in the heart of Clifton Village, Bristol. The owner, Rachel Drake, hand selects unique pieces made by independent artists and designers from around the world. Her ambition is to give her customers the opportunity to own unique and beautiful design whilst at the same time providing a platform for emerging designers to showcase their work. The collection changes with seasonal editions so you can be sure to find something new throughout the year.
The foundation for Rachel's love of design was laid in London but it was moving to Bristol that inspired her to open Objets de Dèsir. Rachel grew up in Camden with a mother who was a fashion designer exposing her to diverse styles, individualism and a creative environment from a young age. Her eye for design was developed further by studying womenswear at the London College of Fashion in 2006. Shortly after graduating she moved to Bristol with her husband in 2010.
Bristol is a hub for artist of all kinds and the city is well known for its diversity, creativity and alternative culture. There is fierce passion for individualism and independence that lies at the heart of the city and being immersed in this environment inspired Rachel. Objets de Dèsir is built on an ethos of fostering quirky independent design. The products chosen reflect Rachel's personality and the influences of London and Bristol; fun, unique and beautiful!
