McArthurGlen has opened a new designer outlet in Provence in the South of France.
The 269,097 sq ft Provence Designer Outlet is the first of its kind in the region. The centre, which is the 23rd designer outlet in the company’s expanding European portfolio, houses 125 premium stores and eight restaurants and cafes.
Luxury brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Coach, Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as leading French brands such as L’Oréal, Maje, Sandro, The Kooples and Zadig & Voltaire are all housed in the outlet, offering year-round discounts of up to 70% off. More than one-third of the brands currently in residence are French, including ten brands that are new to the McArthurGlen portfolio.
The building was designed by French Architects Marseille Architecture Partners in a Provençal style, which integrates the building with its surroundings.
Julia Calabrese, McArthurGlen’s CEO, said: “The Provence Designer Outlet has presented us with new opportunities to work collaboratively with our brand partners as well as the local authorities and communities to create a true retail destination. This centre marks a major milestone in McArthurGlen’s expansion plan in France.”
