Five new signings on their way to Wembley Park and London Designer Outlet

Getty Images Gallery, hairdresser ChopChop London and other brands joined a growing list of retailers taking space at the world-famous destination, London’s newest creative neighbourhood.

Quintain, the developer investing £3bn in the transformation of 85-acre Wembley Park, has secured international photography experts Getty Images Gallery, hairdresser ChopChop London, independent bike shop Twenty3c and Italian restaurant operator Pasta Remoli. Additionally, flip-flop brand Havaianas will open at London Designer Outlet (LDO), the capital’s leading fashion and lifestyle outlet center.

Matt Slade, Retail Director of Quintain, said: “Wembley Park will be a vibrant, creative community bringing together people from all walks of life to live, work, play and more in an exciting, world-class destination. The new signings further build on our legendary past and the successes and proven track record of LDO.”

The world-renowned Getty Images Archive will open a Getty Images Gallery showcasing highlights from the world’s largest commercial collection of photography. With complete access to the Getty Images Archive, a selection from more than 80 million photographs, the gallery will present photographic exhibitions related to Wembley Park, alongside curation, sale and bespoke production services.

The ChopChop London salon will be its first permanent location and largest to date, offering gender neutral pricing from its 167 sq m space. Independent bike shop Twenty3c will open its second store and first in London. The 129 sq m space will also offer a fully equipped workshop, bike fitting services and space for on-site education. This adds to Wembley Park’s long association with cycling including sponsorship of the Dave Creasy Memorial 6, the Ovo Energy Tour Series and the Wembley Park Cycle to Mapic 2019.

Additionally, one of the most iconic Brazilian brands, Havaianas, inventor of the modern-day flip-flop, is set to open a unit at LDO.

Serving traditional, homemade pasta dishes, Pasta Remoli will open a 97 sq m unit, the operator’s fourth restaurant. Using authentic Italian ingredients, it will offer a weekly-changing seasonal special, homemade breads, cakes and deserts.
