Calvin Klein is set to close its Barcelona, Spain, shop next month as the US fashion brand continues to perform unsatisfactorily in Spain, just-style has learned.

An official with the Gonzalo Comella franchiser, which owns the shop in Barcelona's Diagonal high street, confirmed the closing plans.

She would not confirm Spanish media reports that said Conzao Comella, which also owns other retail interests, has teamed with a local peer to open a Dolce & Gabbana shop in the location.

CK also recently shuttered its Bilbao store in the Basque Country, Spanish newspaper Cinco Dias reported.

Despite the closings, CK will continue to sell its branded clothes, underwear and cosmetics in department stores and retailers throughout the country, the paper said.

The brand operates corners in the store network of El Corte Inglés, Spain's biggest department-store chain. Its men's underwear lines are star sellers in the market, selling at premium prices.

CK's first Spanish boutique in Madrid remains open.

Franchiser Llorca Corp Fashion did not return phone calls seeking comment.
