Landmark will open 30 stores across the Gulf region within the next five years. Two Kurt Geiger shops will open in Dubai in early 2008. The stores will reflect Kurt Geiger's existing standalone store design.
This is the footwear retailer's first franchise deal.
In addition to strengthening its UK operation, Kurt Geiger has focused on international expansion over the past two years. It opened a concession in Printemps in Paris in 2005 and has been rolling out footwear departments in Italian department store La Rinascente.
It already operates in branches in Milan, Padova and Cagliari and has plans for up to 17 more concessions within La Rinascente stores.
