LONDON — Tiffany & Co. is debuting a retail concept called Style Studio in a new London neighborhood, and is hoping that customers will relax into it, leave traditional notions of luxury behind — and live a little.
The store, a global first for Tiffany, has a prime position in Covent Garden, an area that’s been building retail momentum and raising the bar on luxury. The new Tiffany, at 13 James Street, is a few steps from the Covent Garden market and near to the newly refurbished King and Floral streets, which offer up a mix of food, contemporary fashion and luxury beauty. Petersham Nurseries has recently opened its first central London outpost — and a garden shop — in Covent Garden, while Sushisamba is set to open later this summer. Cora Pearl, a sister restaurant to Kitty Fishers in Mayfair, opens this week.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion

“We are obsessed with Fendi and we want to share this obsession,” said CEO Serge Brunschwig to WWD. @Fendi will be releasing a new capsule collection Oct. 16 centered around the Fendi/Fila logo created by Instagram artist @Hey_reilly. Further proving the logo trend isn’t going anywhere. Link in our bio for more details. #wwdfashion
