French fashion company NafNaf is to reopen in the UK in August with the launch of a flagship store at the Bluewater shopping centre.

The move follows its attempt in 1998 to crack the UK market that resulted in NafNaf closing all but one of its shops.

UK general manager Anne Honore told Retail Week that the Bluewater store would be the first of a substantial number that the company plans to open in the UK over the next three to four years.
