Christian Louboutin already has two stores in London but in November the brand will open the doors to its first boutique in the UK dedicated to men's shoes and accessories.
According to reports, the store will stock the largest selection of its men's pieces in the UK and will be situated on Dover Street, a stone's throw away from its women's boutique on Mount Street. But this isn't the only men's store the brand is opening. Last September it opened one in Paris and are currently busy working on another one in New York's Meatpacking District, which is set to open in August.
Acne, the denim turned lifestyle brand, has recently made an announcement that came as music to our ears: The Swedish brand will soon be launching its first London boutique. At present, London-based fans of the label can only pick up Acne pieces at Liberty, Matches, Browns and online; even though our American, Parisian and Australian counterparts have been lucky enough to already have the free-standing boutiques on their shores. The wait is almost over, as trendy Dover Street will soon become home to Acne's debut London concept store, which will be stocking Acne's Pop, Denim and Miniature collections, amongst others, as of this summer when Acne's boutique will open.

Welcome to the third installment of Behind The Scenes At Fashion Week. Over the past two weeks we've spoken to Anthony Gordon, Director of Scouting and Communications at Premier and DJ Sam Young. This week The Fash Pack caught up with one of London's leading PRs, George MacPherson from Starworks. In the interview, MacPherson talks about the stresses and strains of fashion week and how it feels the moment American Vogue confirm that Anna Winour is attending a show.
The Fashion Pack: How does your job change during the fashion week season?
George MacPherson: My emails seem to double or treble. I get a crick in my neck from holding my phone on my shoulder so I can talk whilst typing and I only seem to eat food from the Wasabi Japanese place, which is literally underneath our building. I try to get all the usual stuff out of the way early in the month- reports, meetings etc, and then concentrate on the shows and designers who are participating.
