4th April 2024 | Jack Oliver

Cosmetics brand KIKO Milano is set to open its fourth store in London at Angel Central in Islington.

Taking a 818 sq ft unit, the Italian retailer will sit adjacent to Rituals and MUJI, with the store offering the brand’s full product range and in-store make-up services.

This comes as Angel Central celebrates a Fitwel 2-star rating for the re-certification of the scheme this year, which asset manager CBRE Investment Management said represents a continued commitment to health and wellbeing across the centre.

Louisa Butters, head of retail asset management UK at CBRE Investment Management, said: “KIKO Milano is a fantastic brand to add to our retail mix and responds to visitor appetite for more beauty and skincare which you can’t find anywhere else in the surrounding area. We are constantly looking at how we can elevate the centre to deliver even more for consumers, and extending our beauty offer is key to our overarching vision. We look forward to welcoming KIKO to the scheme next month, with many other exciting openings on the horizon for this year.”

Paul Devin, country director of the UK and Ireland at KIKO Milano, added: “As we continue our rapid expansion plans across the UK, our new store at Angel Central will mark a significant milestone for us. Islington has always been on our radar, and with Angel Central’s dedication to the community and its collaborative relationships with tenants, we are excited to be part of a thriving destination.”

Angel Central enjoyed a strong trading period throughout 2023, with a sales increasing by 16% compared to 2022, whilst footfall was up 6.4% compared to the national average. Recent additions to the scheme include OFFICE and Northwood, as well as an enhanced store for long-standing tenant, Accessorize, and a full refurbishment for VUE cinema.
