Karl Lagerfeld to open London store
Karl Lagerfeld will open a flagship store on London’s Regent Street in March 2014 for his self-titled Karl Lagerfeld label.
The Chanel and Fendi designer’s self-named fashion and accessories label will be opening up in the UK capital in March next year.
The Karl Lagerfeld concept store is set to open at 145-147 on London’s famed Regent Street, the West End shopping mecca which welcomes over 70 million visitors a year.
The store will stock all the brand’s men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections, from handbags, leather goods, watches, eyewear and scarves to footwear.
“London is one of the world’s leading cities when it comes to Retail and this location offers a unique brand mix” said CEO Pier Paolo Righi. “Our London presence will be a fantastic representation of our brand’s aesthetic and it showcases our cool, accessible-luxe collections in a cutting-edge environment.”
The 250 sq. meter location is the biggest European Karl Lagerfeld store to date and will feature standard glossy black decor as well as the brand’s focus on a connected digital shopping experience.
Fans will be encouraged to sign in on a digital guestbook and leave messages for Karl, while display racks will hold iPad Minis for customers to browse the collection and play with interactive content.
