A.R.E Awards – Softline Specialty Store 3,001-25,000 sq. ft. – Outstanding Merit
Levi’s Flagship Store Regent Street, London
The re-crafted flagship store was designed to “demystify what makes one pair of Levi’s distinctly different from another while easing the buying process for customers,” according to its designers. Creating a variety of spaces to help with that goal, shoppers now can see the jeans in its 22 stages of washing in the 501 area, view art exhibitions in the Origin Gallery, and enjoy a personalized way to buy jeans in the Inspection Room, where leg forms dressed in each available jean style show buyers fit and color. The leg form’s product sits in clean fixture shelving just below, making the shopping experience easier.
