King’s Cross’ new 100,000sq ft shopping quarter Coal Drops Yard has signed three new British fashion retailers ahead of its launch in October 2018.

Menswear retailer Form & Thread is set to open its first bricks-and-mortar store, following successful pop-up store trials over the past two years.

Footwear retailer Cheaney is poised to open its eighth store at the new development, and will use the scheme’s existing brick wall aesthetic.

Elsewhere menswear and lifestyle retailer Universal Works will open its third London store stocking goods from Portugal, India and the UK.

They will join Paul Smith, Tom Dixon, Lost Property of London, Manifesto and Cubitts at Coal Drops Yard, alongside restaurants Barrafina, The Drop and Casa Pastor.

“Cheaney, Form & Thread and Universal Works will each play a hugely important role in creating the Coal Drops Yard experience,” Argent project director Craig White said.

“They are thoroughly progressive brands with a focus on old-fashioned artisanship, offering quality products at an accessible price-point.

“They complement perfectly our other confirmed partners, and those still to come, and we’re thrilled to be able to announce that they will be opening with us later this year.”
