Desigual To Open First Scottish Store Glasgow

Friday, 01 October 2010

The distinctive high-fashion brand Desigual has chosen Buchanan Galleries as its first Scottish stand-alone store. 


Desigual - which is Spanish for 'not the same' - is known for individual designs and a bold use of colour that set it apart from other fashion labels.  The brand's design ethos comes from a strong sense of identity and self-expression, and a firm belief that Desigual dresses 'people, not bodies'.


Desigual spokesperson said: "We're thrilled to be opening a store at Buchanan Galleries. This will be our first store in Scotland and will give us a great opportunity to showcase what the Desigual brand is about.  Glasgow is a real hub for fashion and we are really looking forward to opening our Buchanan Galleries store."


Samantha Stewart, Marketing Manager of Buchanan Galleries, said: "It's really exciting that Desigual has chosen to open its first Scottish store at Buchanan Galleries.  It's a fun, bright fashion brand which doesn't take itself too seriously - and we think the shoppers in Glasgow will love it."


Desigual is due to open the Buchanan Galleries store later this autumn, which will carry women's and men's clothing and accessories.


With only three other stores in this country, this new addition reinforces Glasgow's reputation as the number one shopping destination in the UK outside London. 


The Desigual announcement is one of a raft of new retailers coming to Buchanan Galleries this autumn, including the much-anticipated opening of Hollister Co.

Notes to editors:


Desigual's Glasgow store is scheduled to open in autumn 2010.


The Buchanan Galleries store will be the first Desigual brand store in Scotland and the latest UK opening - boosting Desigual's UK stores to four. 


Fashion brand Desigual was founded in 1984, with the philosophy 'Desigual is not the same'.  The company shares the same belief today. 


The collection for winter 2010, called 'Happy', was inspired by energy, positivity, warmth and passion.


Optimistic and inviting, it's based on a palette of colours designed to stimulate a warm feeling of wellbeing - velvety hues of pinks, violets, greens and blues.


Desigual has 150 brand stores in 70 countries worldwide.
