Westfield to extend Village luxury zone
Published: 24 June, 2015
Seven new luxury stores to open in the Village at Westfield London
Westfield’s plans will see a number of stores expand, new luxury names open and existing retailers relocate to larger spaces. The enhancements are in response to growing consumer demand for luxury retail at the centre.
The refurbishment will see fashion brand Versace increase its presence with three stores in Westfield London including two new stores in The Village, Versace and Versus Versace. Other new retailers arriving in autumn 2015 include Sandro, Jigsaw, Zadig and Voltaire and Claudie Pierlot. In addition, Whistles will be opening a new enlarged store later this year and Hackett has recently completed a refit. Café Concerto has relocated to a larger space creating an exciting new dining concept in The Village and this month Georg Jenson opens a new store.
The Village enhancements also include the launch of a brand new personal styling service, The Fashion Lounge, which is situated on the second floor of The Village. Expert stylists will be on hand and a range of beauty treatments will also be available from The Lounge.
Improvements to The Village will continue throughout 2015 with further new stores to be announced later this year.
Keith Mabbett, director of leasing at Westfield said: “Westfield London is rated the number one shopping centre in the UK and is in the top five tourist shopping destinations in London. The Village was the first luxury offer inside a shopping centre in the UK and has proved popular, attracting over 100 million visitors since opening in 2008.”
