Luxury designer fashion retailer MATCHESFASHION.COM has appointed MRA Architecture & Interior Design to create a new interior retail concept. Due to open in April 2014, the new store will consolidate the brand's four boutiques in Wimbledon, London into a single 320 sq m space.
Retail design consultancy Sheridan&Co has partnered with British tailor Timothy Everest MBE to provide a springboard for up-and-coming designers. The team has launched a search for a talented individual to play a role in the design of a new central London store.
Lumsden Design has created the shop for the new Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery at the British Museum in London. Located between the entrance to the exhibition space and the Egyptian Sculpture gallery, the shop stocks premium merchandise such as jewellery and silk scarves against a monochrome interior.
Global brand consultancy Interbrand has acquired London retail design consultancy HMKM. The move, which recognises the importance of brand experience in an increasingly digital and omnichannel retail environment, brings together two complementary companies prepared to meet the challenges of the current retail landscape.
