Edinburgh premium womenswear boutique Arkangel is to close for a major refit and will reopen with a new name and a raft of new brands.
Owners Sarah Cosgrove and Andy Kidd, who bought the indie last month, will close the store on Sunday to undergo a major refurbishment.
The former freelance fashion stylist and her husband acquired the William Street shop from previous owners Janey Dalrymple and Lulu Benson, who had run it for eight years.
The 480 sq ft store will reopen as Arkangel & Felon on August 10 with an industrial, art deco-inspired space downstairs and a more luxurious upstairs mezzanine.
The store, which sells premium brands such as Lilith and Ilse Jacobsen, and scarves by Asui, will introduce new labels such as eco brand Sonya Kashmiri and jewellery from London Fashion Week designer Fiona Paxton.
Cosgrove said she would aim to stock brands that sit well with the store’s emphasis on sustainability.
A transactional website is also in the pipeline as well as a personal style advice service.
