New York-based brand Michael Andrews Bespoke plans to open a retail store in Shenzhen, China.
The 1,800 square feet store will be aimed at Western expatriates as well as local Chinese consumers. This is the brand’s third retail location, but its first international store. Michael Andrews Bespoke has stores in New York and Washington DC.
The brand has announced the opening of a 15,000-square-foot production facility in Shenzhen. The company has been manufacturing there since 2006, but this new, state-of-the-art facility is completely dedicated to producing its customizable suits and will quadruple production capacity while cutting delivery time in half, reports WWD.
“We [will] showcase to the world that Chinese manufacturing can be synonymous with quality and luxury,” said Michael Andrews, chief executive officer and founder.
