Canary Wharf to welcome Michael Kors, Schuh and Asics to its shopping scene
Fashion, fitness and food will all take their place at Jubilee Place Mall this autumn as the identities of six more brands moving into the extension were revealed.
Canary Wharf Group announced on Tuesday that Michael Kors, Tiger of Sweden, Schuh, Godiva, Monica Vinader and Asics will open their doors in early November.
Style-conscious Wharfers will then be able to base their Christmas wish-lists around global luxury lifestyle band Michael Kors with its distinctive clothing designs and accessory range, while Tiger of Sweden uses tailoring skills spanning the past century to perfect its ready-to-wear suit collection.
Schuh will take care of footwear demands, making its home within the largest space of the six lets, while Asics' third London-based store promises a "unique brand experience" for customers on the estate.
Chocaholics can also indulge their passion at Godiva and those with a penchant for accessories will enjoy Monica Vinader's colourful jewellery treasure-trove.
Camille Waxer, chief administrative officer for Canary Wharf Group, said: "These highly desirable fashion brands will ensure that the retail mix at Canary Wharf continues to meet the ever changing needs of out customers."
The stores form part of the mall's 44,00sq ft extension project, which will see 25 new stores being created.
The names of 15 of these shopping sites - which also include Banana Republic, The White Company, bareMinerals and Le Pain Quotidien - have now been made public.
Monica Vinader, creative director of the jewellery brand of the same name, said: "We are thrilled to be opening our second London boutique at Canary Wharf.
"The store will showcase out popular, luxury yet attainable mainline collections and we're very excited to be able to share this within the new Jubilee Place development."
Canary Wharf Group is also focussing on a 115,000 sq ft retail development above the estate's Crossrail Station and the combination of the projects signals one of the largest retail expansions in the UK.
