Doncaster's Frenchgate to add to luxury offer with new Tessuti store
Doncaster’s premium shopping destination Frenchgate continues to attract major brands. Premium fashion retailer Tessuti is the latest, and its Yorkshire debut is part of the group’s regional UK expansion plan.
The brand, which is part of the the JD Sports Fashion Group, is taking the 9,000 sq ft space, formerly occupied by Topshop on the first floor, adjacent to H&M and River Island, opening this autumn.
Tessuti Frenchgate, designed by an in-house team, will house a curated selection of men’s, women’s and children’s collections from designers including Y-3, Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, Hugo, Marc Jacobs and Polo Ralph Lauren “to further enhance the luxury offering within the scheme”.
A Frenchgate spokesman said: “Tessuti will be a fantastic addition. It follows our strategy to build upon our strong retail offer and create more designer brand choices for our visitors.
He added: “The new signing is also reflective of the strong commitment by the JD Sports Group, who already have other well-performing brands within Frenchgate, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship further.”
Chris Rowan, Director of Brand & Customer Connection at Tessuti added: “We value the importance of regional locations and as a group we already have experience of Doncaster as popular destination.
“It was an easy decision to select Frenchgate to launch a new Tessuti store and build upon our group presence at the scheme. The new store is in a prime location and will no doubt be a big draw for visitors once we launch later this year.”
The brand made its Northern Ireland debut in Belfast earlier this year and also opened at Liverpool One in the spring.
