LONDON — German accessories brand MCM is looking to Europe for growth, with stores planned for Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich in the fall, and recently opened units at Printemps and Galeries Lafayette in Paris and at Jelmoli in Zurich.
The accessories firm, which currently counts Asia as its strongest market, has also opened a shop-in-shop in Harrods here. The 1,130-square-foot space is located on the lower ground floor of Hall 1, and features natural wood and gold metal details. MCM has a flagship in London and is also stocked at Selfridges.
