Chinese Laundry, a vintage clothing brand and boutique, joins Leeds Corn Exchange’s 23 independent shops, cafes and salons.
Chinese Laundry opened in Hull in 2004 with a second store opening in York in 2015 and is finally bringing its brand to Leeds.
It offers a wide range of vintage clothing from Europe and the United States, as well as its own brand of reworked clothing that breathes new life into pre-loved items. The store will also offer a full line of own-brand clothing and accessories.
Alfie Appleton, founder of the business, said: “We are really delighted to finally be able to bring our store and our brand to Leeds.
“We had been looking for the right store for a long time and the beautiful setting of the Corn Exchange, the heart of independent retail in Leeds, seemed like the perfect fit.”
Adam Warner, Leeds Corn Exchange Center Manager, added: “We couldn’t be happier to welcome Chinese Laundry to the Corn Exchange family as the brand opens its first store in Leeds.
“It’s an incredibly exciting time here as we continue to work closely with Leeds City Council to transform the area around the Corn Exchange to create more public space so we can continue to support the independent shopping scene. thriving city of Leeds.”
The launch of Chinese Laundry will follow the recent openings of Color May Vary and Bellwether Yarns. Chinese Laundry officially opens at Leeds Corn Exchange on October 2.
