The Turkish based denim manufacturer behind Little Big is steaming headlong into its global expansion with the opening of its first LTB store in Rome, Italy.

The company’s HQ is based in Istanbul, which would explain the murals of the beautiful city in this new architect-designed interior. The 1,200 sq. foot retail space covers two floors which house Little Big Jeans, sportswear and accessories on the Via Del Corso area of Rome.

With the support of it’s parent company, the 56-year-old denim manufacturing giant CAK Tekstil. LTB plans to open additional stores before the end of the year in Bucharest and Moscow, and additional ones in the US in 2006.

The men’s and women’s denim collection is already sold in 4,000 department and specialty stores, as well as freestanding stores throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, Mexico, and the Middle East.
