After recent articles were published in this weekend’s papers claiming Lily Allen‘s business, Lucy In Disguise, was experiencing trouble after the closure of it’s Covent Garden store, the singer has decided to speak out and defend her creation.
And apparently, the shop is doing rather well.
“I’m really excited that Lucy in Disguise continues to expand with the planned opening of a brand new shop and the expansion of our online business,” said Allen.
And she wasn’t best pleased about the publications in question, as she clearly expressed on her Twitter page: “If any other publication wants to write deliberately misleading articles about Lucy in Disguise, feel free, I WILL sue you.”
However, a spokesperson for Lucy In Disguise insists the business is doing extremely well, and the closure of the Covent Garden store was all part of the plan.
“Our Covent Garden space was a nine month pop-up store that helped us successfully launch the Lucy in Disguise concept and this current move was always part of our plan,” said the spokesperson.
“Lucy in Disguise is pleased to announce we have a new store. As we develop this exciting new space on 48 Lexington Street which will open in August, we are able to welcome our customers to our pop-up store just around the corner at 3 Lowndes Court.”
The more permanent store is set to open on August 1st, with the current pop-up store still operating for the duration of July, reports Vogue UK.
