Oxford Street is home to not one, but four Zara stores, conveniently spread out along the length of it. 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 kids collection at numbers 61 and 333 Oxford Street. Towards the back of each store, in the women’s section, you’ll also find their sub-brand TRF. Aimed at the Zara customer who is in their teens and early twenties, here you’ll find the most daringly fashionable clothing with a more youthful spirit. The main line caters for 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. A multitude of shoes, handbags, and accessories also keeps customers coming back.
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 of the 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.
