Alpha Tauri, the premium fashion brand of Red Bull, continues its global expansion with the opening of a flagship store in London. Already available in The UK via e-commerce, the brand has opened the first fully owned store in Britain and marks the company's entry into British brick-and-mortar retail.“We are pleased to be continuing our expansion course in the heart of London. Our goal is to implement Alpha Tauri's brand vision internationally and to establish a global presence. The opening of the first flagship store here in the British capital is another important milestone in our growth strategy,” explained Ahmet Mercan, CEO, Alpha Tauri.
The new two-floor, 326-sq.-meter store has opened on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge. It was designed by the Berlin, Vienna and LA-based Studio Riebenbauer, with the aim to immerse the visitor in the Alpha Tauri world and showcase its latest collections for men and women.
The two core competencies of the brand are reflected in a knit and a parka installation. The knit installation, which extends over two floors, constructed from a myriad of threads, takes inspiration from Alpha Tauri's 3D knit products, which are made entirely in one piece. The parka installation, on the other hand, consists of individual technical parts attached to the wall, exhibiting the iconic Alpha Tauri Koov parka.
A Formula 1 race car of is displayed, assembled from original parts. The show car, painted in the colors of the racing team (of which Alpha Tauri is the main sponsor and namesake) seems to emerge from the wall, representing the connection between the F1 racing team and the fashion brand, being both focused on expertise and a constant development of innovative solutions.
