First look: Arket's new store in Bluewater

Fashion and lifestyle brand Arket opened its first store outside of London at Bluewater on 18 May.

The 11,625 sq ft unit is a modern-day market-style store that stocks clothing for women and children, as well as homeware. The menswear collection will be launched in the summer. 

As well as Arket’s own lines, the shop stocks collections from around 50 brands. It also has a vegetarian cafe based on the “New Nordic Food Manifesto”, an approach to food designed by a collection of Scandinavian chefs, which focused on freshness, sustainability and seasonality. 

Arket’s managing director Lars Axelsson said: “We chose London as the city to launch last autumn and have had a great reception in the UK during our first year. We’re very happy to have the opportunity to grow and meet new customers, and look forward to be part of the exciting diversity of brands at Bluewater.”

The brand first announced the new store opening in March.
