LONDON — The catwalks and showrooms here may be brimming with activity but so are the streets of Mayfair and St. James’s. A clutch of new stores has opened — or undergone refurbishment — on Savile Row and beyond.
On June 16, Kilgour will host a party in its soon-to-be-opened store at 5 Savile Row. The space, designed by creative director Carlo Brandelli, will shut following the festivities, and reopen again at the end of June with the fall collection. Brandelli, who rejoined Kilgour in January after leaving in 2009, won’t be presenting his spring collection on the official calendar, but will be showing pieces by private appointment.
