While Hackett London has recently opened a 2,940 square foot store, and Polo Ralph Lauren has moved to a larger unit in the outlet centre. The US brand has upsized from 6,000 square foot to a 16,739 square foot store to stock womenswear, menswear and kidswear.

Jack Busby, portfolio director at Land Securities, said: “The addition of such prestigious brands as Michael Kors and Hackett reinforces Gunwharf Quays’ status as the leading premium retail outlet in the UK, whilst Polo Ralph Lauren’s major upsizing is a huge demonstration of our consumer pull and attraction here.
