After a long awaited arrival TopShop/TopMan is opeing its doors tomorrow for the launch of their first American location. TopShop was due to make its debut last Autumn but due to construction, flood, and even fire delays scheduling was pushed back. The grand opening kicks off tomorrow at 11am with Kate Moss and Sir Phillip Green. They are hoping to translate Topshop's success from London to the streets of Manhattan.
PR consultant Kelly Cutrone had to say this about Topshop's arrival “I truly believe it is going to turn New York upside down. This is going to be an injection of cool and energy that only the Brits can deliver to the sad retail world in New York. All the girls in NYC will trample and grind to get into that store; they live for girls like Agyness Deyn and Kate Moss.”
Kate Moss's ninth collection will also be launched tomorrow. It will launch the same day as the UK.
The 25,000sq. feet store is located on Broadway and cost a reported $20million.
