Nicky Clarke is rumoured to have been paid a £500,000 premium to move out of his headquarters on Mount Street to make way for Oscar de la Renta’s new shop. Although neither confirming nor denying the rumours, Nicky Clarke’s ex-wife and business partner Lesley did tell the Evening Standard that ‘[they] have come to an amicable, compatible agreement.’
The expensive location is the perfect spot for Oscar, who has been looking for the right place for his London store for the last three years. The Nicky Clarke headquarters will move up the street to number 11, opposite the Connaught Hotel (fancy!)
We think Oscar’s dreamy, red carpet worthy dresses will fit in nicely on the street populated by Jenny Packham, Rouland Mouret and Carolina Herrera.
