Banana Republic Comes To London

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Exciting news … Banana Republic has ventured across the pond to open its first store in the UK, in London to be precise.

Like many American stores, once you visit a brands shop in America you long to continue shopping there when you return home. Sadly most of the great brands and designers are American based so you can’t. Banana Republic was one of those for me. With many celebrity fans amongst them, fashionista’s including Angelina Jolie and Reese Witherspoon this brand is sure to be popping up over all the elite fashion print so look out for its designs.

The new store which is open now and is the flagship and only store in Europe, is located at 224 Regent Street, London, W1B 3BR. Visit Banana Republic online for more information.
