COS & Monki sign up for South West debut

Aug 22, 2016

Scandinavian contemporary brand COS and vibrant fashion label Monki are opening new stores in Bristol before Christmas. The launches at Cabot Circus will mark the debut in the South West for both brands.


According to Hammerson, COS will take a 548 sq mt store in Quakers Friars, were it will offer shoppers its reinvented classics and wardrobe essentials. Set against the historic backdrop of a 13th century Dominican Friary building, COS’s new store will reflect the brand’s design values, which mix traditional shapes with modern elements.

Monki’s Bristol store will become the label’s second store in the UK. The street style-inspired apparel brand will open a 344 sq mt double-height store on Concorde Street.

Iain Mitchell, UK Commercial Director at Hammerson commented: “It is a great result for Cabot Circus, as well as for shoppers in the South West that these exciting international retailers have selected the centre to make their debuts. Already a retail, dining and leisure hub for leading global brands it is encouraging to see Cabot Circus continuing to go from strength to strength as occupiers look to expand across the UK into the very best regional destinations.”

The Scandi brands join retailers such as All Saints, LK Bennet, Gant, Harvey Nichols and Hobbs at Cabot Circus shopping centre.
