British brand Baracuta has shuttered its flagship store in Carnaby’s Newburgh Quarter in London, just over two years after it launched.
Property sources have told Drapers the 600 sq ft shop, which was its first standalone store, has stopped trading and has since been relet.
The store was operated at one point by Kevin Stone of Stone Agencies, who has been associated with the brand for 14 years.
Stone remains as the brand’s wholesale agent and consultant for the UK.
Baracuta was founded in Manchester in 1937 and bought by Italian distributor WP Lavori in Corso in 2012.
According to its website it operates one other store in Milan at Via de Amicis, which opened last September.
Neither Baracuta nor WP Lavori responded to requests for comment. Stone declined to comment on the closure.
