British heritage brand Oliver Sweeney is to open its second store outside of London, in a new site located on Manchester’s Hardman Street.
The 53 sqm store, designed by architects Urban Salon, will be situated in the luxury development Spinningfields, near to Manchester centre. The store will be located alongside fashion retailers Armani, Flannels, All Saints and Mulberry.
The retailer already has two stores in London, a shop in Leeds and a concession in Harvey Nichols, London.
The new Manchester store, which features installations by graphic artist Anthony Burrill, will stock Oliver Sweeney’s mainline and London collections, along with its expanding jackets and accessories offer. The store incorporates eco-friendly techniques using fiber optic and LED lighting to reduce the amount of electricity used.
The shop will also feature iPads to demonstrate previews of forthcoming collections.
The shop is due to open on October 4.
