Temperley London opens pop-up store in Leeds city centre
High-end fashion brand Temperley London has chosen Leeds as the location for its first store outside the south east.
The retailer has opened a pop-up store in the city centre's County Arcade, Victoria Leeds.
Temperley London focuses on women's ready-to-wear collections, and offers a comprehensive range of daywear, cocktail and evening wear.
Iain Mitchell, UK commercial director at Hammerson, owners of Victoria Leeds, said: "Temperley London's unique design-led products will be a great addition to Victoria Leeds, and will really complement the broader fashion offer at the destination, which includes the likes of Mulberry, Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood.
"Pop-up stores are a great way for brands to test out their offer in new locations, and also help us to keep our destinations fresh and exciting for consumers."
He added: "Across our portfolio, when it comes to fashion, we're looking for unique, independent brands that deliver products and an in-store experience that breaks the mould, and Temperley is a great example of that."
The brand was founded by Alice Temperley MBE in 2000, and Alice continues to head up the creative direction of the business.
Temperley London uses artisan techniques and intricate hand-worked embellishment, an aesthetic synonymous with Alice's creative style.
The brand currently has four standalone stores, including its flagship store in Mayfair, and its products are distributed in more than 30 countries across the world.
