St James Quarter adds fashion brand Reiss

St James Quarter, the £1bn retail-led lifestyle district in Edinburgh, which launched its first phase in the summer, has added British fashion brand REISS to its line-up.

The design-led brand will take a unit on level three, where it will neighbor similar high-end brands including the likes of Kooples, Aesop, Russell & Bromley, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, and H Beauty. 

Reiss is a global fashion brand offering women’s and men’s wear. It is set to occupy a 184 sq m space. Founded in 1971 by David Reiss, the brand has 185 locations across 8 countries. 

St James Quarter has gone from strength to strength since opening in June, and Reiss joins the impressive and growing list of names at the retail led destination, which includes & Other Stories, Mango, Zara, Bershka, Pull & Bear, Stradivarius, Miele, Next, H&M, JD Sports, John Lewis and many more. 

This latest letting also follows on from the recent announcement of two new lettings to international restaurants WingStop and Thai Express Kitchen at the quick service pitstop dining area, Leith Street Eats. 

Chris Pyne, head of leasing at St James Quarter, said: “Reiss has been a fixture of the British shopping scene for half a century and will be a welcome addition to St James Quarter’s growing list of luxury brands. Our diverse offering continues to blend international retailers, household names and popular local brands.” 

Spokesperson at Reiss, added“In our 50th year, we’re proud to be opening another Reiss store in a great location. St James Quarter is an exciting development with everything the modern customer is looking for.”
