French luxury fashion house Celine is to open a store on London’s Mount Street bolstering the roster of designer names to take up residence on the road.
According to Vogue, Celine will open on the site of the Jordan International Bank at 103 Mount Street. Celine is the latest in a number of designer labels to open on the street including Lanvin, Marc Jacobs and Christian Louboutin.
Also this week luxury fashion house Oscar de la Renta said it would open a store on the street and it has been reported that labels including Givenchy, Chloe, Yves Saint Lauren and Erdem are in talks to launch stores on the road.
The new store will mark Celine’s reentry into the UK retail market after closing its only UK store on Bruton Street in London in July 2009.
Celine is owned by luxury goods group LVMH, which this week reported a 25% sales jump for the first quarter of the year.
