Landsec, part of The St David’s Partnership, has announced the signing of two premium fashion retailers for regional debuts. Spanning 2,130sq ft on the Grand Arcade, Carvela’s first standalone Welsh boutique is set to launch at St David’s in July, adjacent to sister brand Kurt Geiger. Joining Carvela, and expanding the St David’s women’s fashion offer, is a regional debut for Mint Velvet. The new store will cover 3,700sq ft on The Hayes, adjacent to All Saints.
Nik Porter, head of retail brand account management at Landsec, commented: “We’re excited to be welcoming both brands to St David’s for their regional debuts. The addition of Carvela, in particular, is the result of a strong partnership we’ve built with Kurt Geiger which has allowed them to broaden their presence and introduce a new concept to Wales.
“Over the past 12 months, leading brands including Carvela, Mint Velvet, ZARA, Hobbs, and Phase Eight have all chosen to make their regional debut at St David’s, cementing it as the go to destination for retail in Wales.”
