International womenswear brand Leem is set to open its first UK retail store at Westfield, White City in London on December 6, 2023. This marks a significant development for the brand, which is known for its range of affordable and stylish clothing aimed at the modern woman.
The opening of this store is part of a one-year pop-up initiative, offering UK customers an opportunity to experience Leem’s latest fashion offerings firsthand. The brand’s collection is characterized by a mix of light and versatile airy knits, tailored maxi dresses, and distinctive elements such as exaggerated sleeves, solid color contrasts, cutout details, and statement prints. These designs aim to cater to women seeking elegant and globally influenced fashion items that are both high-quality and essential for their wardrobes.
This new physical retail space represents an expansion of Leem’s presence in the international market while continuing to focus on its established customer base.

Miles Young, the Managing Director of Leem, commented on this expansion: “Our global expansion journey reaches an exciting new milestone with the unveiling of our first Leem store in the UK, strategically located in the heart of Westfield London. This marks a pivotal moment for our brand as we introduce a contemporary perspective on timeless, modest fashion to a wider audience. Our new 1,900 square foot pop-up store has been uniquely designed to provide the most luxurious shopping experience, reflecting our commitment to offering the very best to our customers.”
The design of the store reflects Leem’s core aesthetic, featuring sleek lines, a tonal colour palette, and dynamic print and texture elements. The store layout is divided into three distinct areas, each designed to enhance the customer experience. This includes bold floor-to-ceiling campaign imagery, a combination of floating rails and freestanding gondola displays, and modern seating areas.
