Rihanna has made an impact since launching her Savage X Fenty line last month with reported strong sales and she’s now announced that London will host a pop-up shop, the label’s second after New York.
British eveningwear brand Galvan has chosen New York for its first ever international retail space, where it has replicated the same multifunctional format debuted at its headquarters in Notting Hill, London.
May offered up a mixed picture for UK retail with footfall still down, but the decline slowing. Retail parks were buoyant but shopping centres suffering disproportionately, which is bad news for the fashion sector.
The unexpected death of fashion designer Kate Spade on Tuesday has shoppers rushing to buy her brightly coloured handbags, raising prices of used merchandise several times over, second-hand online retailers said.
The value brand said this has been the fastest rollout in retail history. The company wants to be one of the largest clothing retailers in the UK by sales volume and become a £100m annual turnover business.
