Topshop owner Sir Philip Green stated: “I walked the space myself earlier this month when under construction and was impressed by the location, energy and diversity of great brands within the store. We are all excited by the reception Topshop has been given [in] recent launches in other European cities, such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Munich."
“However, with Paris being such an important fashion capital, we are hopeful that this opening will be the jewel in the crown, and the start of the journey to bring Topshop to even more fashion lovers with our partners at Galeries Lafayette."
Paris as a fashion capital is key for Topshop
Meanwhile, Hollywood actress Kate Bosworth has teamed up with Topshop again to create a capsule winter wardrobe collection.
Described as the perfect mix between masculine and feminine, oversized and fitted, the collection was created by Topshop’s in-house design team with Bosworth as design consultant.
"The collection is tailored and classic. For fall, we wanted to create luxurious pieces with a strong minimalist approach," says Bosworth. “Slim silhouettes are cloaked in a masculine shape, staying true to the mix of masculine/feminine balance that exists in my personal aesthetic."
The 46-piece collection has landed in stores globally and online, priced 35-500 pounds.
