Design-led jewellery retailer eyeing London’s King’s Road premises.
Independent jewellery retailer Kabiri, regarded as one of the most innovative independent jewellers for its array of international jewellery brands and emerging designers, is set to open a fourth store on London’s King’s Road.
Kabiri was founded by Nathalie Kabiri and her husband Darius in 2004, and currently has stores on Marylebone High Street and in the Covent Garden Plaza in London, and a concession in Selfridges on Oxford Street.
Nathalie Kabiri revealed to Professional Jeweller that the store is set to open its fourth retail location on the King’s Road around September 18th, and says she has been very busy with the preparations. Kabiri has recently taken a buying trip to New York.
The brand’s first store opening on Marylebone High Street was last year targeted in raid which saw a large sum of jewellery stolen. Kabiri owner Darius Kabiri and staff were held at gunpoint by one robber, whilst another destroyed jewellery cabinets in search of specific items of jewellery in May last year.
Kabiri re-opened the store in November with a total refit, while maintaining its typical design-led luxe interior. The new store is likely to follow Kabiri’s black and silver colour themes recognisable at its present locations.
The retailer sells jewellery designs from around the world, with pieces on sale by Gurhan, Kenneth Jay Lane, Megan Thorne and Imogen Belfield. They have championed the likes of Jayce Wong, Ana de Costa and Francesca Sybilla Augusta.
