Sometimes you don’t need to go global for inspiration

Sometimes you don’t need to go global for inspiration

Sometimes you don’t need to go global for inspiration. The new Jigsaw Emporium in Duke Street, London is a great example of the way forward for retail. The 5,500 sq.ft. store combines a collection of products from Jigsaw and independent designers such as Studio Nicholson, Katie Rowland, Woolrich and Grenson.  These fashion brands sit alongside home wares, jigsaw junior line, books, art and beauty products from brands such as Aesop. 
The stores features painted brickwork, stunning block work floors, off set with contemporary elements such as a metal staircases etc. Little touches such as a duke box with an eclectic mix of new and old classics hand chosen by Peter Ruis (MD) all add to the relaxed environment. 

The product mix is further enhanced by one of London’s coolest cafes. Fernandez and Wells, this allows customers a chance to meet for a coffee, lunch or a glass of wine. This more relaxed approach to retailing is key to the success of the quality brands, where the customer wants an experience and interaction.
