LONDON — John Varvatos has made a bold statement with his first European store, a sprawling 10,000-square-foot flagship — his label’s largest yet — that opened on Conduit Street here on Friday.
The three-story space plays to both Varvatos’ rock-inflected style — with vinyl records and vintage audio equipment for sale alongside the designer’s leather jackets in the store’s basement — and his sartorial leanings, with the sleek, light-filled second floor devoted to the brand’s tailoring offer.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
