The concept at the heart of the new River Island flagship in Birmingham’s Bullring Shopping Centre is ‘The Event’ – the essence of being at a fashion show or art exhibition.

Dalziel and Pow’s new store concept for The White Company delivers a lifestyle-led retail experience modelled on a journey through the home. The new 4000 square foot store in Norwich builds on The White Company’s heritage to create an aspirational, carefully curated retail experience worthy of the homeware brand.
The design is bright and fresh, with a dynamic monochrome palette that frames the stock perfectly. A lighter feel has been given to the space to appeal to the female customer and a strong sense of femininity and fashionability is revealed through the bold communication, which promotes the brand and its attitude with a new confidence.
The concept centres on two bold feature boxes, which have landed in the store. The large, freestanding architectural boxes communicate the brand colour on the outside and have a contrasting internal lining, which either responds to trends to create a fashion space, or becomes softer to the rear to form a more discreet lingerie area.
The latest incarnation of Next’s evolving concept can be seen in the high profile, recently refurbished and expanded Trinity Centre in Leeds. The 3,200 sqm store features new concepts for men’s
and childrenswear, as well as an updated women’s and home concept – all developed by Dalziel and Pow in conjunction with the in-house team at Next.
The departments are carefully planned to take into account their adjacencies and encourage browsing and cross-selling. Each floor has a square raft of solid ceiling, surrounded by an open ceiling around the perimeter that pushes out into the corners. Walking around that square central zone without the aid of a walkway creates an intuitive circulation that has become a brand signature.
