The store, located on Lower Regent Street, will feature an 'elliptical' changing room where customers will be able to try on samples of every garment in the collection in a real world environment while seated on a Goomah racing bike to ensure the perfect fit. The brand plans for the store to become a social hub for cyclists. 

The brand is also aiming to ensure the store is seen as a 'destination' – the shop floor will feature revolving banners and digital communication rails. 

Assos chief executive officer, Phil Duff, said: 'We are delighted to launch our first-ever UK store, right in the heart of London. It will be a unique experience."

Last month, Accesorize created an immersive experience for its new store opening at Westfield, while Diesel also pushed the boundaries for its flagship store with a VR experience

The Assos store opens on the 18 November.
