Designer fashion retailer Tessuti is opening a 4,870 sq ft store at the Intu Potteries shopping centre, Staffordshire, in April, Drapers can reveal.
The shop will sell men’s and women’s designer brands, including Paul Smith, Polo Ralph Lauren, Love Moschino and Hugo Boss.
The opening follows the success of fellow JD Sports Fashion-owned brand Scotts at the centre.
James Air, group acquisitions manager for Tessuti and Scotts at JD Sports Fashion, said: “We have traded successfully over many years at intu Potteries under our Scotts fashion banner, and have a loyal clientele. The decision was taken to invest in this strong location with a bigger, better store to combine both the Scotts range and to give customers an all new Tessuti with its higher end luxury brands.”
Colin Flinn, regional managing director for Intu, said: “Intu Potteries is home to many of the UK’s leading brands – from Primark and Debenhams to Cineworld. The centre’s key location presents retailers with opportunities to deliver strong performance.”
Founded in 1985 by David Light, Tessuti is a chain of designer stores in the UK, selling men’s and women’s designer collections, including clothing, shoes and accessories.
The business was acquired by JD Sports in 2012.
Intu owns and manages seventeen shopping centres in the UK and three in Spain.
