Independent lifestyle retailer Microzine is to open a 4,000 sq ft flagship store off London's Carnaby Street, with plans to also move into own-label footwear.
The store, which will be unveiled on the first floor of Kingly Court next month, will be the retailer's third shop and will sell its mix of fashion, furniture, art and gadgets.
Microzine, owned by former Reebok creative director Chris Lee, will also launch its own trainer label to be sold in its stores. Lee said: "I think the Carnaby Street area has really come up a lot in the past few years so I'm pleased to have the opportunity to open there. We'll put some new brands in, like FUS and David White. The footwear will launch in December ahead of the launch of a series of exhibitions we are curating featuring Liverpool artists."
Microzine sold its first London shop in Islington in 2005 and relocated to a 700 sq ft shop in Little Portland Street. In 2005, it also opened a shop in Liverpool. Its existing London store will close after the Kingly Court shop opens in May.
