Battersea Power Station (BPS), a yet-to-be-opened shopping destination in London, has announced a flurry of new brands to join its line-up from the autumn onwards.
Fashion brands arriving at BPS, which is a decommissioned coal-fired power station on the south bank of the River Thames, include Hackett, Theory, Mulberry, Levi’s, Pinko, Petit Pli, Abercrombie & Fitch, Superdry, Castore, Sweaty Betty, and Lululemon.
Additionally, a number of new accessories and eyewear brands have been confirmed, including Ace & Tate, IWC, Watches of Switzerland, David Clulow, and ROX.
BPS said 90 percent of its commercial space is now let, with 85 percent of the retail and leisure space exchanged or under offer.
The new brands join previously announced names set to open their doors at BPS, including Uniqlo, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, The Kooples, Ray-Ban, L’Occitane, Gant, Lacoste, Mango, Reiss, Hugo Boss, MAC Cosmetics, Space NK, and Jo Malone London.
The opening of BPS is expected to create over 2,500 jobs.
