Shaftesbury Capital has announced that five new brands have joined the Seven Dials neighbourhood located within its Covent Garden portfolio.
Marking their first permanent brick-and-mortar stores, independent British womenswear retailer Odd Muse and contemporary demi-fine jewellery brand Missoma have opened their debut flagship locations on Monmouth Street. Odd Muse’s store at 44 Monmouth Street reflects the label’s ethos of elegance and modernity, while Missoma at 46 Monmouth Steet showcases a range of new collections, bespoke services and designer collaborations. Missoma’s permanent Seven Dials flagship follows its successful pop-up in Covent Garden’s Market Building earlier this year. LAKRIDS BY BÜLOW, the gourmet liquorice brand, has also joined the new retail line-up on Monmouth Street.
Joining Neal Street in the coming weeks is a UK debut for French men’s skincare brand Horace and further brand expansion for leading British shoemaker, Loake. Opening at 29 Neal Street, Horace will deliver its range of natural skincare in a modern and contemporary environment for the first time in the UK, underpinning the success of Covent Garden in attracting and securing international firsts. Loake is also set to open a store at 62 Neal Street early next year, stocking the brand’s staple, heritage footwear for men.
Michelle Mcgrath, executive director at Shaftesbury Capital, said: “Our Seven Dials neighbourhood continues to evolve into a hotspot for innovative concepts, independent stores, international flagships and the best of British, with the latest arrivals of Odd Muse, Missoma, Lakrids, Horace and Loake being testament to this. It is a huge vote of confidence that these five leading brands have all selected Seven Dials, Covent Garden to be their location of choice and we are proud to play a role in their ongoing success. From Odd Muse’s debut bricks-and-mortar store and Horace’s UK entry to Missoma’s continued recommitment to the neighbourhood, these latest announcements bolster the destination’s reputation as a hub for pioneering, high quality retail concepts.”
This latest news follows a flurry of activity across the Covent Garden estate, including the recent opening of luxury perfume house, Creed, the UK debut for French footwear and activewear brand, HOKA, as well as the introduction of high-profile, premium watch brands Hublot, Girard-Perregaux, Omega and Tissot, as well as fine jewellery brand Messika to the destination.
