J.Crew set to launch first international flagship store

JCrew will open new London Flagship

J.Crew has announced that they will open its first store outside of North America in central London late next year. J.Crew has selected the 17,000-square-foot retail space left vacant by Burberry on the corner of Regent Street and New Burlington St. to launch its UK flagship store.  “We look at Regent Street the same way we look at stores on Fifth or Madison Avenue, or North Michigan Avenue in Chicago,” Mickey Drexler, CEO, says. “I would imagine, if you can’t make it there, you can’t make it anywhere,” adds Drexler. While already carrying a handful of British-based brands (Barbour, Thomas Mason, London Undercover), we expect J.Crew to make a splash across the pond. No exact opening date yet confirm.
