Brand opens first standalone on Camden High Street
LabTech, owner of Camden Market, has unveiled the opening of its latest British clothing retailer, Fred Perry, located at 255 Camden High Street.
In association with the area’s notable musical legacy, the brand marked the official opening of its first standalone shop in Camden with DJ sets from Massive Attack’s Daddy G and British newcomer, Taylor Skye.
Spanning two floors, Fred Perry’s latest unit has been designed by retail studio company, Rizlly and features a contemporary space with concrete floors centered around spotlights, mimicking a stage-like presence on the shop floor. The basement is a dedicated exhibition space inspired by the local area’s artists and icons, bringing together original artefacts and images that trace elements of Camden’s musical history from 1966 to today.
Jenna Barry, LabTech’s senior asset manager, added: “Fred Perry is an iconic fashion brand and the opening of its first standalone store in the area strengthens LabTech’s retail offering by marking a new chapter for Camden’s High Street. The brand’s British routes and commitment to creating a store centred around the area’s musical scene will be a key footfall driver for this area of North London, among other popular brands located here such as All Saints, Urban Outfitters and Ray-Ban.”
