Ralph Lauren is set to make its debut in Manchester with the opening of a store on New Cathedral Street.

The luxury fashion brand and retailer has committed to 2280sq ft store on a 10-year lease, offering its range of men and women’s clothing, homeware and gifts.

Ralph Lauren will not be the only luxury retailer on New Cathedral Street, a fashion hub that is owned and managed by Intu and M&G Real Estate in a joint venture partnership.

Hugo Boss and Reiss have also both recommitted to the street on 10-year leases.

“The addition of Ralph Lauren, with its bold and timeless style, demonstrates the strength of Manchester’s retail market and cements New Cathedral Street as the city’s main luxury fashion destination,” M&G Real Estate Asset Manager Kannika Mall said.

“We have been focused on implementing a proactive asset management strategy to attract further luxury, high-end retailers to New Cathedral Street.

“The lease renewals from Hugo Boss and Reiss are fantastic news, and reflect their strong performance in recent years, and their continuing confidence in the location.”
