French Connection UK to set up shop in Pune''s Central Mall

Pune: French Connection UK (FCUK), the UK''s hi-fashion brand, is reportedly opening a store in Pune, at the Central Mall.

The 956 sq ft store will be its fifth outlet in India, adding to its three in Mumbai and one in New Delhi.

The brand will showcase the Autumn-Winter 2007 collection that covers western formals to casuals, and accessories, including a mix of traditional bags and oversized holdalls that have multi-pocket compartments.

The store will not have FCUK''s kids range on display on account of space constraints. FCUK''s range starts at about Rs1,295, and its accessories section is expected to soon widen its product range by including the likes of sunglasses and perfumes.

FCUK has another outlet at New Delhi and two in Gurgaon on the launch pad, which will most probably be open by December 2007.
