// Italian fashion group to open new Regent Street store in London
// Calzedonia Group growing its presence in London, with 5,000 stores worldwide
Fashion retailer Calzedonia Group is to open a new Calzedonia and Intimissimi store at 266-270 Regent Street, London.
Located at the Oxford Circus junction, the store will replace Tezenis, which previously occupied the retail space, according to The Industry: Fashion.
Also owned by Calzedonia Group, Tezenis is best known for its swimsuits, underwear and clothing for men and women.
Formed in 1986, Verona-based Calzedonia offers hosiery and beachwear, while Intimissimi specialises in bras, briefs, lingerie, vests, and pyjamas.
It has over 5,000 stores across 55 markets under the fascias Calzedoni, Intimissimi, Tezenis, Falconeri, Intimissimi Uomo and Atelier Eme.
The new location will join Intimissimi’s existing London stores including Kings Road, Chelsea, Westfield London and Westfield Stratford.
With a location at 112-114 Oxford Street, Intimissimi and Calzedonia already operate a combined store in the area. The group also has an Intimissimi store at 368-270 Oxford Street.
It is currently not known whether the new store is a relocation or if the group will continue to operate all of its stores in the area.
The company is currently recruiting for employees at the new store, with additional information displayed on newly installed window wrapping.
