TWENTY ONE BY MCGREGOR OPENS VERY FIRST STORE IN AMSTERDAMTwenty One by McGregor, the denim lifestyle line from American sportswear brand McGregor, opened its first mono-brand store on April 3 in the Netherlands, right in the heart of Amsterdam.
Gaastra and stocks the full Twenty One by McGregor men's and women's collections, stretching over two stories.
The second floor features a customize-corner where customers may design their own shirts out of a variety of McGregor tartan fabrics.
On the 2nd floor, customers may customize their own tartan shirts.
With its interior design, furniture and decorations, the shop strongly hints at McGregor's history of being a classical American college brand and even has some of the original post-war styles from the company archives on display. The store concept was developed by McGregor's Creative Director Christian Arkins and Stefan Bennebroek, Puur Plus Ontwerpers were the executing architects.
Twenty One by McGregor launched its first collection (spring/summer 2012) at Bread & Butter Berlin in July 2011. The line turns towards a slightly younger or more casual customer than the classic McGregor label. Key pieces are vintage-washed shirts, college jackets, biker leather jackets, hooded sweatshirts, rugby dresses, washed chinos and denims - although denim isn't regarded as the most central element of the line, as Arkins explained. "We carry denim because it completes the denim lifestyle that Twenty One stands for but we do not claim to be denim pioneers or try to re-invent jeans."
