WEEKENDER

Steve Cochrane is founder and owner of Middlesbrough-based fashion store, Psyche

Friday night gladrags or a night on the sofa?
I’m the going-out type and I like new clobber, so its gladrags for me every time. Fridays mean a game of squash, followed by a night out in Yarm. 

A super Saturday?
The family and I go swimming on a Saturday morning, then I try and fit in an afternoon at work, chatting to customers and staff. Then it’s dinner out with friends and time in Boro, too, if time permits! 

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
It has to be New York. It has so much character and energy.

Memorable mini-break?
My wife Alex and I went to Venice last April, just the two of us. We had the most amazing time and remembered that we weren’t just mummy and daddy!

Sunday best?
Up early and out mountain biking at Guisborough woods, followed by Sunday lunch either at my mum’s or at a nice pub. Then a walk on the beach at Saltburn with the kids and the dog.


Congratulations to the Psyche team on winning Best Store Design and shortlisting for Best Independent Multichannel Operator at the Drapers Independent Awards in London.
