Premium fashion brands join Gunwharf Quays

The Gunwharf Quays outlet centre in Portsmouth has signed up fashion brands Michael Kors and Hackett London.

In addition, Polo Ralph Lauren has upsized to a new, larger store at the centre.

Michael Kors has taken a 3,669 square foot unit for its fourth outlet store in the UK. The store will stock the US brand’s range of womenswear, menswear, shoes, fragrances, cosmetics and accessories. Due to open on 3 September, the store will be situated at the centre of Gunwharf Quays, opposite Ted Baker.

Polo Ralph Lauren’s new store is more than double the size of its previous unit at Gunwharf Quays and spans 16,739 square feet. The store is close to new signing Hackett London which has opened its first outlet store in South East England at Gunwharf.

Jeremy Hackett, chairman of Hackett London, said: “Gunwharf Quays’ universal appeal to a burgeoning number of tourists and a unique, curated mix of brands highlights the desire for the Hackett brand to open a store. We are extremely excited to offer our luxury ranges of men’s formal and casualwear to such a large and enthusiastic catchment.”

The new tenants have joined a range of other premium fashion brands such as Hugo Boss, Paul Smith, Tommy Hilfiger, Jaeger, Swarovski, Diesel, Joules, All Saints, Ugg, Radley, Lacoste, and Links of London.

Jack Busby, portfolio director at Land Securities, said: “The addition of such prestigious brands as Michael Kors and Hackett reinforces Gunwharf Quays’ status as the leading premium retail outlet in the UK, whilst Polo Ralph Lauren’s major upsizing is a huge demonstration of our consumer pull and attraction here. These new tenants represent a significant investment from some of the world’s top premium brands to be part of a hugely successful, forward-thinking outlet.”
