Burberry, which has been in the crosshairs for burning tens of millions of dollars of its products, is far from the only firm to destroy unsold goods to maintain the exclusivity and luxury mystique of their brands.
The Myla lingerie brand is being relaunched this week by Agent Provocateur's ex-CEO with Net-A-Porter, Selfridges and Bergdorf Goodman on board, plus a flagship due next month and plans for a move into swimwear.
Burberry is under attack over its strategy for disposing of surplus stock with criticism similar to that faced by H&M, showing that it's not only the mass-market that destroys unsold goods rather than recycling them.
One of London’s biggest landlords aims to breathe new life into what it calls the South Molton Triangle and that could have a big impact on retail with a spread of prime retail space into more streets in W1's heart.
Selfridges is diving deep into pop-up stores and while much of the attention around these is focused on the pop-ups opening in its Oxford Street, London flagship store, Manchester is part of the strategy too.
