As if we weren't already excited to see what Christopher Kane had up his sleeve for Spring Summer 2014, news landed on-route that the designer is set to open his first ever flagship store on London's Mount Street. So as we entered the show space this morning, we headed straight for his fashion pals Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof to hear their reaction.
Turns out, the duo hadn't yet been informed. 'I hadn't heard, how exciting! I wonder if I’ll get a discount - that's my first thought.' Naturallement. So what can we expect from a CK store? 'Clothes from Christopher kane I imagine.' We knew this one was savvy. 'The words Christopher Kane on the top?' Pixie piped in. Oh, and 'A TILL!'. Oh, LOLs.

'I imagine it will look good,' Alexa said in earnest. 'Hopefully it'll have really good lighting.' As for how the FROWing pair will be celebrating the news, Alexa admits that they're frequent Kane partiers. 'He’s very good at celebrating,' she says. Will they be taking tequila shots or having a indulging in a swanky dinner? Nope, Chungers will be celebrating with an arm wrestle. 'Last time I arm wrestled him, so maybe I’ll arm wrestle him for old times sake.' God, we love this girl.
Christopher Kane's London store is due to open at the end of 2014 and will join the likes of Lanvin, Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood in veeery posh Mayfair. This is an incredibly exciting time for us. To have our own retail space gives us the chance to showcase our collections and to really express our vision. To open in London first was really important to us as this is where our label was born,' said the designer and his sister, Tammy. And here's to you winning the arm wrestle, too.
