Roubaix, a town of art, history and dedication to fashion:
Roubaix Designer Outlet is another long established McArthurGlen designer discount outlet mall in France which opened its doors in 1999. Situated in the heart of Roubaix, along an attractive pedestrianised walkway, Roubaix Designer Outlet is the highlight of the town’s redevelopment scheme with a metro stop on-site.
Like Troyes, Roubaix has a proud textile past which has been carried on into the present times. The town has created a centre of excellence in fashion and textile creation. It has a Fashion District which is home to fashion creators (clothing and accessories) and decoration, all of whom work together on economic project basis. In this Fashion District, boutiques and workshops are rented to creators at reduced rates.
Roubaix Designer Outlet is home to over 60 stores. Here you’ll find 130 top fashion names, including Calvin Klein Underwear, Cerruti 1881, Comptoir des Cotonniers, Façonnable, Geox, Kipling, Adidas, Lacoste, Lee Cooper, Manoukian, McGregor, Mexx, Morgan, Nitya, Petit Bateau, Reebok, River Woods, Salamander, Samsonite, Swarovski, Ventilo, Von Dutch and Zadig & Voltaire, at highly discounted price all year round . Roubaix has yet another big discount outlet – L’Usine which has more than 200 brands.
This is very much a shopping destination. If you’re here in early December, there is a Fashion Market where you can discover original fashion creations and decoration by their designers.
