French Connection returns to Manchester city centre with flagship northern shop - and it's helping the We Love Manchester appeal
The fashion retailer will be selling a gold bee necklace to raise money for the fund.
The fashion brand opened a new store inside the Royal Exchange building yesterday, close to its original Manchester base on the corner of St Ann’s Square, which closed last January.
The shop will stock French Connection’s full womenswear and men’s clothing range, including its premium collection, which has previously only been available in its Oxford Street shop in London and online.
The Manchester shop will also stock a small range of homeware and will be the first to feature the retailer’s new design concept, with modern and minimal interiors making use of sustainable materials.
The building is home to The Royal Exchange Theatre as well as big name brands including Hotel Chocolat, L’Occitane, Molton Brown and Swarovski, an arcade full of independent boutiques, and office space.
