Designer Hussein Chalayan is set to open his first bricks and mortar venture in London’s Mayfair later this summer after signing a deal with landlord Grosvenor for a store on Bourdon Street.
The 700 square foot store, situated at 2 Bourdon Street, which is halfway between Bond Street and Green Park tube stations, will stock Chalayan’s women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections.
Commenting on the opening, Chalayan said: “We are thrilled to open our first flagship store in London, for me the most important metropole in the world, where I grew up and to which I owe my development as a designer.
“Bourdon Sreet will be an exciting new home for us and we look forward to welcoming our clients, and all who are interested in discovering the Chalayan world, to a space which truly reflects our philosophy and ethos.”
The designer, who has twice been named Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, is known for referencing architecture in his fashion designs, so it will be interesting to see how he applies his vision to his debut store.
