CBRE Investment Management has announced KIKO Milano, the Italian cosmetics brand, is set to open a new store in Angel Central, the retail and leisure destination situated in the heart of Islington. This forms part of the brand’s rapid expansion plans across the UK and the continued strength of Angel Central in elevating its wider retail offer for visitors.

KIKO Milano will open an 818 sq ft unit at Angel Central later this month, adjacent to brands such as Rituals and MUJI, enhancing the beauty and skincare offer within the centre. It will stock the brand’s full product range, as well as offer in-store makeup services, delivering an experiential element for visitors. The store, which marks the brand’s fourth location in London, will be designed by Iosa Ghini and transcend the brand’s staple concept city format.

This announcement comes as Angel Central celebrates a Fitwel 2-star rating for the re-certification of the project this year, demonstrating CBRE Investment Management’s (CBRE IM’s) continued commitment to health and well-being across the physical, mental, and social aspects of the centre, its visitors, and its tenants.

Louisa Butters, Head of Retail Asset Management UK at CBRE Investment Management, commented: “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.”
