Fast fashion retailer New Look is taking advantage of its popularity in menswear by opening 25 new stores in the next five years – including a batch of standalone menswear stores in China and France over the next 12 months.
While the store split between the UK and overseas is not yet known, the retailer currently going through exceptional growth in China where it has had like-for-like growth since entering the market at the start of 2015.
New Look first launched standalone menswear stores almost a year ago and has quickly garnered a reputation as being a leader in the trend of standalone high street menswear stores.
Online retailer Boohoo launched a standalone menswear site in April while Net-a-Porter recently revealed its own-brand menswear label.
Department store chain Harvey Nichols also recently relaunched its menswear department, while fashion chain Jigsaw has announced plans to expand its menswear range over the next five years.
