I am confident that we will deliver unique and authoritative British fashion to the many customers who are already fans of the brands, whilst giving many others the chance to try us out for the first time. Rick Caruso, and his team at the Grove, have been more than welcoming and we are very proud of our store, our collections and the Personal Shopping experiences that we offer.''
Rick J. Caruso, CEO of Caruso Affiliated, stated: "The global phenomena Topshop and Topman attract a stylish, devoted fan base from all over the world and the West Coast flagship store will bring a unique fashion-forward energy to The Grove. With their endless mission to bring style to the consumer coupled with their premier onsite services, our guests will fall in love with what the brands bring to Los Angeles."
From 3pm on the afternoon of February 14th, there will be a take-over of the Grove, one of the most iconic shopping destinations in LA. Topshop and Topman will completely transform the area outside the store, capturing the attitude and energy of a true British street party. The afternoon will include free treats, live music and special guests. The celebrations will continue over the opening weekend in store.
The Topshop area will house the brand's key ranges - Unique, the seasonal London Fashion Week collection, the second Topshop x J.W Anderson, one of many designer collaborations, and Boutique, the brand's premium limited edition line. Other pieces include Topshop's famous Leigh Jeans, which will be available in all colour-ways in the Denim area, and the Jersey section will feature neon bright vest tops, perfect for the LA girl. Topshop launches with a collection exclusive to LA and hand-picked by actress, Kate Bosworth.
LA will see all the best menswear collections that Topman has to offer anywhere across the globe including all the designer collaborations, Topman Design (straight from the catwalks of London Collections: Men), Topman Ltd and Topman's Premium and Super Premium tailoring. The hotly anticipated 'LUX' collection will hit the LA store before anywhere else in the world. The collection features elegant intricately detailed pieces across formal and casual wear, including men's jeans and men's suits. Also exclusive to LA will be a capsule of 30 specially created luxury sportswear pieces designed by the London in-house design team.
Since it launched in 1964, Topshop has become a major British style authority and one of fashion’s biggest success stories. In 1994, a Topshop flagship store was born, as the brand took over a 90,000 sq ft space at London Oxford Circus in the heart of the West End. It remains there today, and attracts over 200,000 shoppers each week. In the USA there are flagship stores in New York and Chicago, and Las Vegas.
Topman has earned its sartorial stripes with an unswerving, energetic approach to producing truly exciting high-street men's fashion. Driving trends forward while shifting the way men approach shopping, the brand's attitude to creating brilliant, affordable and authoritative menswear is second to none.
