Lyle & Scott to open first store in London at London Designer Outlet
British Menswear brand Lyle & Scott has signed a lease on store at London Designer Outlet, marking its debut in the London area and joining the likes of premium and lifestyle fashion brands such as Police, Guess & Kurt Geiger.
The heritage label will occupy more than 800 sq ft and will be the brand’s only outlet store to open in 2021 in the UK.
Lyle & Scott, which was founded nearly 150 years ago, originally specialised in designing and retailing Scottish knitwear.
Philip Oldham, Chief Executive Officer of Lyle & Scott, said: “Many of our loyal customers have favourite items of our clothing linked to treasured memories. Opening at London Designer Outlet, itself a destination that is about the sensory experience of retail, gives us an incredibly exciting opportunity to meet more of our customers and create more memories.
“We’re greatly looking forward to opening our new store, welcoming guests so they can experience the Lyle & Scott brand for the first time in the capital in a safe, enjoyable environment.”
London Designer Outlet, which is set among the wide boulevards of Wembley Park, welcomed a series of new retailers over the course of 2020 despite the pandemic. This included Police in its first store in the capital and British handbag retailer Radley.
Christine Grace, Leasing Director at Realm, who manage London Designer Outlet, added: “London Designer Outlet has maintained impressive momentum throughout the pandemic, signing leases with and opening the doors to new brands that guests will love. It’s a reflection of the urban outlet centre’s open air design, premium fashion and retail, vibrant F&B and excellent guest service that every time we have reopened post-lockdowns, people have flocked back to London Designer Outlet once again.”
