Tommy Hilfiger has taken a 2,975 sq f- unit and Calvin Klein Underwear will open a 1,290 sq ft store, the brand’s first standalone UK presence outside London and Manchester. Clements & Church will be opening the doors to its second Birmingham store, offering contemporary ready to wear, made to measure and bespoke gentlemen's attire.
Alongside the new signature 45,000-sq ft Harvey Nichols store which opened in July, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein Underwear and Clements & Church will join leading fashion brands including Hugo Boss, Emporio Armani, LK Bennett, Jaeger and Gieves & Hawkes. Castle Fine Art will also be opening a new gallery within the retail mall.
The Mailbox’s transformed retail mall and skylit ‘urban room’ will now be unveiled in October 2015. The Mailbox welcomed a three-screen, 12,000-sq ft Everyman Cinema earlier this year, in addition to urban neighbourhood kitchen, Gas Street Social.
Melanie Taylor, head of leasing at Milligan, development partner and joint owner of the Mailbox, said: “The basket of premium brands which we’re curating for the Mailbox is national, international and local, and will bring a whole new tier of retailing to Birmingham.
“There is a huge amount of anticipation about the unveiling of our retail space, especially now that Harvey Nichols Birmingham has opened the doors to its stunning new store and set the bar for luxury fashion.
