ISG and Realys’s strong teamwork and marketing resulted in Colliers International recommending our services to the Japanese sportswear brand, Descente. We delivered the long-awaited store on Carnaby Street together, in order to utilise the strengths of both brands. ISG acted as Contractor while Realys was brought in as the Consultant. This is the second flagship store ISG has successfully introduced to the UK market, after The Toy Store opened in September.

The project

We delivered the project over a 20-week period, with a construction programme of 11 weeks, developing the London feel hand-in-hand with Descente via a weekly video conference. The fit out included three floors and shoppers can now peruse the multi-award winning all terrain collection and origami pattern structure jackets. Cutting-edge technology video walls and digital displays also feature alongside an elegant staircase.
