NEW POLO RALPH LAUREN STORE TO OPEN IN LIVERPOOL ONE

Global fashion brand, Polo Ralph Lauren, is set to open its latest store in Liverpool ONE this spring. It will occupy a 1,900 sq ft space and will include both womenswear and menswear collections.

Adjacent to HUGO Boss, Flannels and Beauty Bazaar Harvey Nichols on Peter’s Lane, the new addition complements Liverpool ONE’s international line-up which is unique in the UK.

The new store represents the classic yet spirited American style for which Polo Ralph Lauren is recognised throughout the world. The store design fuses elements of collegiate sports mixed with the great outdoors. Rustic oak flooring and planked wood wall paneling are combined with antique and vintage-inspired display cases and tables, and an eclectic mix of artwork and decorative props. The store aesthetic reflects the same sensibility as the brand itself – one that is both classic and casual with a modern, energetic spirit.

Alison Clegg, Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor Europe, commented: “To have Ralph Lauren join our premium retail offering is fantastic, and reflects our reputation amongst luxury and high-end retailers. The brand will appeal to visitors throughout our catchment, while further strengthening Liverpool ONE as a destination.”

Cushman & Wakefield and Metis Real Estate Advisors acted for Liverpool ONE and Harper Dennis Hobbs represented Ralph Lauren.
