Gilly Hicks has opened the doors to its new Carnaby Street flagship store in London, marking the fashion retailer’s first UK standalone store.

The lingerie brand is owned by Abercrombie & Fitch, which also operates Hollister, and it specialises in women’s intimates and loungewear, competing with Victoria’s Secret.

The flagship on 39 Carnaby Street is of the brand’s growth strategy to expand its product assortment, enhance its digital experience, and its “reimagined brand purpose” as it moves to become more gender-inclusive.
