Over the weekend, ARNE, the popular online men’s and women’s contemporary clothing and footwear brand, hosted the return of its much-anticipated pop-up store at Liverpool ONE.
Following a hugely successful debut activation earlier this year, ARNE welcomed hundreds of visitors to its second brick-and-mortar activation at Liverpool ONE.
ARNE occupied a 3,500 sq ft unit in Liverpool ONE from the 14th to the 15th of October, showcasing its high-quality, minimalistic clothing and footwear alongside exclusive products and limited-edition items, bringing its lucrative online brand to a physical format for the second time.
The space attracted large numbers of visitors, reflecting the brand’s minimalist style through a subtle interior design featuring steel walls, mirrors, and concrete floors. ARNE organised a VIP event in conjunction with their first pop-up store at Liverpool ONE. This event allowed a chosen group of loyal customers to meet the founders and have early access to exclusive products.
Rob Deacon, Asset Management Director at Grosvenor, commented:
“ARNE’s return to the destination for its second pop-up has been highly anticipated and further cements our reputation as a hub for pioneering, first-rate retail concepts. We are very pleased to have welcomed back ARNE for its latest pop-up which looked right at home alongside Liverpool ONE’s leading selection of internationally recognised lifestyle brands.”
Reece and Ryan Broadhurst, Co-Founders of ARNE, added:
“Our first-ever pop-up at Liverpool ONE earlier this year was a huge success and we have been eager to come back to the destination ever since. We have an amazingly loyal following in Liverpool which does mean a lot since it is the city closest to where we have always lived, and so we were delighted to see such strong turn-out and enthusiasm for our latest activation.”
GOLDSMITHS’, a prominent luxury watch and jewellery retailer in the UK, has recently opened its biggest store yet on Paradise Street in Liverpool ONE.
The new store, which is part of the Watches of Switzerland Group, spans two floors and covers an area of 13,000 square feet. It brings the Goldsmiths Luxury (GS Luxury) concept to the city, in a space that is twice as large as the previous location in Liverpool ONE. This expansion represents a significant investment from the brand.
