US fashion brand Guess is to debut its standalone accessories format in the UK next month.

The retailer will open its first accessories-only store in Bromley’s Glades shopping centre, with a view to opening a further four before the end of the year. The store, also called Guess, will stock men’s and women’s accessories such as watches, jewellery and bags.

The retailer will also open three of its fashion stores in the UK before the end of the year and is in negotiations for a further two central London shops. It will also open an outlet store in Bristol.

Guess UK country manager Julian Groves said that the accessories-only stores marked the start of an “aggressive retail expansion in London and major cities across the UK”.
