 American heavyweights and old faces join Harvey Nichols in Birmingham’s new look mall.

The revamped new look Mailbox store is to open its doors on October 22.

Eleven new stores will also open as part of the £50million facelift.

A new skylit area called the Urban Room will be the centrepiece of the new-look Birmingham mall.

Also opening on October 22 are some old tenants who had to vacate while the work was going on, and some new designer labels.

They include two American heavyweights, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein.

Returning to the Mailbox are BOSS, Armani Collezioni, LK Bennett, Jaeger and Gieves & Hawkes.

Castle Fine Art will also be opening a new gallery within the retail mall, specialising in original and hand signed limited edition works.

Premium male fashion brand East Club and designer children’s boutique, Cloudo Kids, will be opening exclusive pop-up stores on the Thursday.

They join the new 45,000 sq ft Harvey Nichols which launched in July.

Hair salons Toni & Guy, Nicky Clarke will continue to coif the heads of customers

A host of additional brands are scheduled to open early in the New Year.

A series of celebration events are planned to coincide with the unveiling of the Urban Room, including a series of specially curated panel sessions exploring themes around fashion, beauty, food and lifestyle, and artistic installations and performances inspired by the Mailbox’s new creative concept, Life Made Beautiful.
