Zara has four stores on Oxford Street, and they’re all conveniently spread along the length of this world-famous London shopping street. Though this might seem excessive, the set-up ensures that West End shoppers get the best possible selection, with a more spacious and relaxed experience. Zara is one of the most loved fast fashion retailers around the world, and London is no different, meaning that whether you get off the tube at Marble Arch, Bond Street, Oxford Circus, or Tottenham Court Road, you’re only ever a few metres from one of their stores.
Known for offering runway-inspired looks at affordable prices, the Spanish brand attracts style-savvy women and men. You’ll also find their kid’s collection at numbers 61 and 333 Oxford Street. Towards the back of each store, you’ll also find their sub-brand, TRF, in the women’s section. Aimed at Zara customers in their teens and early twenties, you’ll find the most daringly fashionable clothing with a more youthful spirit. The main line caters to women of all ages with more classic yet still style-conscious pieces to cover all aspects of your wardrobe, from work to play. Menswear covers tailoring, denim, sportswear, and outerwear in line with the latest trends. Many shoes, handbags, and accessories also keep customers returning.
Store layouts are crisp and clean to help you find exactly what you want under bright lighting and spaciously-placed clothing rails. Placed on simple white mannequins against a plain-walled backdrop, the clothes sell themselves.
In recent years, Zara has made considerable effort to become one of the most sustainable brands on the high street and actively encourages their shoppers to help them achieve this. All four Oxford Street branches participate in their Clothes Collection Programme, where you can drop off your unwanted clothes to be recycled or reused. Every item will go to the charity Red Cross to help with their needs and help to prevent landfill waste.
