Victoria Quarter in Leeds confirms five new stores including Liam Gallagher's clothing boutique and Japanese-Scandinavian interiors shop
Liam Gallagher’s clothing boutique Pretty Green will re-open alongside the arrivals of ‘Japandi’ – Japanese-Scandinavian – interiors store North Home, luxury tailors Carl Stuart, entrepreneurial brand showcase SOOK, and Korean-London jewellers Astrid and Miya.
SOOK – described as a ‘retail innovator’ – will provide a high street events space with pop-up experiences such as fashion designers, yoga, beauty lounges and tech product launches.
The newly opened North Home on Vicar Lane is exclusive to Victoria Leeds and introduces the city’s shoppers to Japandi design, a combination of Japanese and Scandinavian styles.
Moving into the Victoria Quarter’s County Arcade is Yorkshire tailor Carl Stuart, who already has stores in Huddersfield and Ossett, and whose client list includes members of the Royal Family. The shop offers a made-to-measure suit service and the brand has a 50-year heritage in the region.
Expressive jewellery and body art brand Astrid and Miyu, have brought their first pink boutique outside of London to Victoria Quarter following success in New York. The elegant store stocks a beautiful range of jewellery including their signature stacks and bespoke welded bracelets. The brand also offers engraving, tattooing and piercing services.
Returning to King Edward Street, Oasis star Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green is set to re-open this month. Back by popular demand, the brand reflects the interconnected relationship of music, culture and style with its unique menswear collection. From Manchester to Leeds, Pretty Green is set to take both the city’s music and fashion community by storm.
Senior general manager at Victoria Leeds Jo Coburn said: “We are really excited to welcome such an array of unique and distinct retailers to Victoria Leeds. Each of our new additions truly reflects the progressive ethos of our destination and recognises the demand for quality products and experiences in Leeds.”
“Our customers are looking for variety, quality and inspiring environments to spend time in, and our focus is to respond to this proactively by enhancing their experience and exceeding expectations.”
