Continuing the brand’s global expansion, the classic, quirky men’s lifestyle retailer Jack Spade opened its first European store in March, in London’s hip Soho neighborhood. The shop opened its doors on Brewer Street just in time for the 2012 Summer Olympics. We expect to see some very well outfitted athletes — and their fans! — around the city this summer.
This outpost is the second Jack Spade store to open abroad (the first one is in Tokyo). Like the brand’s stores in New York, Los Angeles, and across the U.S., the London branch features ready-to-wear, bags, wallets, ties, laptop and phone accessories, and other assorted small goods. The durable, design-focused collection is accented by an array of unusual objets d’art that are unique to this particular store.
Having received an array of positive, enthusiastic coverage from the British press, including GQ, the London Evening Standard, and the Huffington Post’s UK edition, the brand’s first European store is off to an incredible start. Jack Spade London is a harbinger of great things to come in the brand’s continuing global expansion.
