Victoria Square, the leisure and retail destination positioned in the heart of Belfast, has announced the signing of Tessuti for its Northern Ireland debut at the scheme.

Tessuti, the modern premium fashion store which is part of the JD Sports Group, has signed for a 12,900 sq ft store in Victoria Square. The store will be situated on William Street and will serve as the new regional flagship for the business.

Tessuti is expected to open in quarter four of 2022, aiming to capitalise on an increased footfall from Christmas shoppers. The store will be stocked with designer brands across menswear, womenswear and childrenswear including Hugo Boss, Stone Island and Moschino.

Commenting on the debut signing, Russell Banham, UK Head at Commerz Real, said: “Tessuti has moved from strength to strength and has a real vision for physical retail. We are pleased that they have selected our scheme to house its first Northern Ireland store and it speaks volumes about our reputation as the leading retail destination in Belfast. Tessuti selecting Victoria Square underlines our successful strategy of securing new tenants to the market and being at the forefront of a brand’s regional growth.”

Chris Rowan, Director of Brand & Customer Connection at Tessuti added: “We are incredibly excited to be expanding our presence in Northern Ireland. Victoria Square is the perfect location to kickstart this growth – positioned in the centre of Belfast with a prominent store frontage by the entrance, there is no doubt that this is a solid move for us as a brand.”

The news follows the announcement that luxury watch and jewellery retailer Goldsmiths is due to open a 2,680 sq ft showroom on the Upper Ground Floor this summer.
