Housed inside a historic building at 11 Orefici Street in Milan, Italy, the store will deliver a unique retail experience featuring The North Face, Timberland and Napapijri, with other VF brands periodically showcasing their premium collections.

Surrounded by international offices and high-street retail brands, the 22,000 square-foot space will span three levels and feature advanced technology to deliver immersive brand experiences and virtual journeys through the store.

“VF’s family of iconic brands consistently deliver must-have products and experiences to people around the world,” said Martino Scabbia Guerrini, VF’s Group President of the EMEA Region. “We’re pleased to introduce this new multi-brand retail concept to our fleet of stores to further elevate our offering for our consumers while also advancing our strategy of becoming more consumer-minded, retail-centric and hyper-digital.
