ESCADA expands UK portfolio

German luxury women's clothing retailer, ESCADA has opened two new stores, one on London's Sloane Street and the other in Bicester Village in Oxfordshire. rpa:group worked in collaboration with interior designer Fran Hickman to provide full project management and architectural support services.


The new 160 sq m Sloane Street store has opened further along the same street on which an already successfully trading ESCADA store is situated. The 165 sq m Bicester Village store has seen ESCADA taking occupancy of a new unit, with the requirement for the construction of a mezzanine level, to accommodate stock.

Design inspiration has been taken from ancient Japanese artistry, combined with the classical designs of British architect and furniture designer Robsjohn-Gibbings. The interior blends delicate gold wall designs, with Art Deco-inspired furniture. The walls feature gold leaves cascading down, each one hand painted to give a unique ombre effect. The space has been styled with colourful objects d’art, as well as inspiring literature, to give an engaging and chic feel.
