Under Construction | Abercrombie & Fitch in Dusseldorf on Königsallee!

Konigsallee 17...use your imagination... |  (image source)
I am so pumped for A&F Dusseldorf!!! Completely excited!!! OMFG, I mean how totally awesome is this?! It's gonna be the first Abercrombie & Fitch in Germany  - Ich liebe Deutschland! - and construction on this soon-to-be-amazing flagship is nearing completion, everyone!

The Kö...simply beautiful. | (image source)
Getting up close and personal with luxury, the flagship site is located on Dusseldorf's Königsallee boulevard - King's avenue - the city's premier shopping street. (Dusseldorf is Germany's fashion capital and Königsallee - the "Kö" as it is referred to by the locals - is arguably the nation's busiest, upscale shopping stretch of pavement)! With a calm canal, lined with trees, running down its center, Königsallee is simply one of the most pleasant streets out there for your shopping leisure. Burberry, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and, soon, Abercrombie & Fitch...need I say more?

Actually, yes. To be more precise, A&F Dusseldorf is addressed at Königsallee 17 and the structure standing on site has been undergoing structural renovations for quite a while now (since January 2011 to be exact). The Company is working on converting the interior into another one of its iconic international flagships! And we can all be assured that it will be a finished FIERCE wonder to behold. Honestly, I can't wait to check out the mural inside by Bruce Sargeant! Homoerotic, yes. A pleasure to look at, of-freaking-course! I don't want to give much more details because if I do then what else will I report when the store opens? I want to keep you at the edge of your seat, boys and girls. I will tell you this...the entire flagship will offer 21,000 square feet (1,951 square meters) and it will be the second location in the world to house both an Abercrombie & Fitch and an abercrombie kids flagship under the same roof - the first was A&F Milan back in 2009.

Preparations are being held behind a towering billboard in front of the construction site...

Very hot. And Abercrombie & Fitch in Dusseldorf opens in December just in time for the Holiday season (and some serious shopping)! And come on now. We all should know that there's no Christmas like an Abercrombie Christmas...and in Germany this time! Abercrombie & Fitch...Germany...naughty Weihnachten fun...oh, this is going to be an amazing Christmas 2011, indeed!

Can't wait! Stay FIERCE!
