THE JOY IS truly wondrous to finally see the abercrombie-branded construction hoarding wall now up after more than two years of dragging struggle to bring this upcoming store into realization. The planned abercrombie kids flagship store – the first standalone a&f kids flagship in the world – is now beautifully manifesting itself at No.3 Savile Row a stone's throw from A&F London. The roadblocks over the past prolonged period of battle have been annoying and tiring, but to be left in the past for good riddance. We couldn't be anymore happy to finally see this retail project flourishing more onsite, and this wonderful and positive new development comes beautifully as we get ever more merry for the Holidays!

The project description reads: "Internal and external alterations comprising retail accommodations on the lower ground [floor], ground [floor], 1st and 2nd floors with associated office accommodation on the 3rd and 4th floors." It is expected to be completed by 41 weeks after the starting date which has been marked as October 28, 2013. Forty-one weeks exactly after that date falls on August 11 (unrelated, though incidentally, the A&F Hong Kong two-year anniversary). We can expect the opening in the latter-half of 2014.
The collaborating designer is the firm Househam Henderson which has done work for the likes of Tom Ford, Montblanc, Bottega Veneta, and many significant high-profile locations for Abercrombie & Fitch Co. in Europe.
