Harvey Nichols poised to unveil menswear refit

Department store group Harvey Nichols will reopen the menswear department at its Knightsbridge flagship on April 13, following a multi-million pound revamp.

The refurbishment, executed by Hosker Moore Kent Melia, got under way last August, and aims to improve circulation and footfall in the international tailoring and designer areas.

A dedicated entrance from Sloane Street has been created, and new lighting and glass screens have been introduced to define brand areas.

Harvey Nichols commercial director Patrick Hanly said: ‘Creating exciting and uplifting departments is part of our strategy to set new and higher standards in retail.’

Harvey Nichols was taken private by Hong Kong tycoon Dickson Poon last year. The retailer is on the expansion trail and opened a store in Edinburgh last year.
