Hidesign Un­veils Europe Flag­ship Store in Sara­jevo

Shoes & Accessories - - Sq. Ft. -

Hidesign has opened its flag­ship store for Europe in the heart of Sara­jevo’s her­itage town. Spread over two sprawl­ing lev­els, the store ex­udes the val­ues of the iconic leather brand: lux­ury, her­itage, crafts­man­ship, and warmth - all of it “au na­turel”.

Built on two lev­els, the Hidesign store in Sara­jevo is spread over 1800 square feet. It is housed in a her­itage build­ing on Vladislav Skaric 10 right next to Ho­tel Europe. Four tall arched win­dows of­fer mag­nif­i­cent glimpses into the store. The win­dow de­signs high­light the nat­u­ral leathers and hand­crafts­man­ship that Hidesign is well known for. Cus­tom de­signed and made com­pletely in solid wood, and Hidesign’s veg tan leathers and brass, the store in­vites you to touch and im­merse your­self in the el­e­gant crafts­man­ship of its prod­ucts. Mar­ble ta­bles and finely de­tailed brass shelves present the sleek moder­nity of the brand’s de­signs. The time­line wall, veg­etable tan­ning of leathers and de­sign sto­ries in­tro­duce you to Hidesign’s her­itage. Vin­tage fur­ni­ture, large mir­rors and chan­de­liers add to the lux­u­ri­ous warmth of leather.

Started in Cal­i­for­nia, Hidesign is now an es­tab­lished brand in over 24 coun­tries across Europe, Amer­ica, Aus­tralia and Asia. “Sara­jevo is at the cross­roads of Europe – buzzing with en­ergy yet steeped in a strong her­itage, much like our brand; it is the per­fect place for us to make our home,” says Dilip Ka­pur, Founder and Pres­i­dent of Hidesign.

The new store nar­rates the story of the brand, from its re­bel­lious past us­ing archival im­ages and mu­seum pieces in­clud­ing the first hand­bag ever de­signed by Hidesign in 1978 and the ‘Boxy bags’ that won Hidesign the ‘Ac­ces­sory of the Year’ award in the UK. The store also high­lights the brand’s pop­u­lar­ity with dig­i­tal in­flu­encers that ad­mire its au­then­tic­ity and com­mit­ment to eco­log­i­cal prac­tices such as veg­etable tan­ning.

“We are proud to in­tro­duce a brand like Hidesign to cit­i­zens of Sara­jevo. Stari Grad, a place where the past is in­her­ited, will be the cen­tral Hidesign lo­ca­tion for Europe and will of­fer the com­plete se­lec­tion of Hidesign’s lat­est col­lec­tions,” adds Raif Turko, Hidesign Sara­jevo.

Hidesign claims that its stores are cus­tom made from high qual­ity ma­te­ri­als that are nat­u­ral: solid brass, real leather and wood.

The brand is known for its clas­sic con­tem­po­rary look and sim­plic­ity is key to its de­sign lan­guage. Hidesign’s port­fo­lio in­cludes a wide range of leather goods and fash­ion ac­ces­sories such as brief­cases, hand­bags, com­puter bags, back packs, lap­top sleeves, clutches and even­ing bags, city bags and satchels, duf­fel bags, wheel­ies, gar­ments, wal­lets, wash bags, belts, sun­glasses, and small leather goods.
