The lifestyle fashion retailer will house a curated range of apparel, including shirts, accessories and a denim collection. It will also include a selection of workwear targeting business travellers.

“We’re proud to deliver Country Road’s first menswear pop-up, exclusive to Sydney Airport,” said Glyn Williams, Sydney Airport general manager.

” The offering reinforces our commitment to deliver innovative and exciting retail concepts that excite customers and enhance the value and choice that we offer.”

The Country Road pop-up joins global fashion chain, Calvin Klein, who recently made its first foray into travel retail within Australia.
