Harrods Gets Elie Tahari Shop-In-Shop
Elie Tahari has established a leased department at Harrods London on the fourth-floor Fashion Lab, representing the brand’s first concession. The design of the shop encompasses similar elements of the company’s signature design aesthetic, including midcentury furniture by Thomas Noguchi and Hans Wegner. Featured in the Harrods shop is imagery from the spring campaign along a wall displaying the campaign video. The Fashion Lab launched in November 2013, designed by architect Richard Found to create the 30,000-square-foot urban fourth-floor space. There are plans to open more shops and points of sale this year.
Juicy Couture Sets International Store Expansion Plan
The Juicy Couture brand is growing globally, and through its licensing partners, expects to open 133 stores over the next five years. At that rate of openings, Juicy stores would total at least 335 globally by the end of 2020. So far, 31 new international sites are planned for this year. Eight countries will see new stores. There are 199 freestanding stores overseas. That’s in addition to outlet stores and shops-in-shop in select department stores across 60 countries, including the U.S.
