Shopping Center News - - STORE ARRIVALS -

French luxury brand Her­mès finds a new home in In­dia’s logo-lust­ing cap­i­tal just in time for the fes­tive sea­son. In 2008, Her­mès found its home in the Oberoi Ho­tel in Delhi, af­ter which the la­bel shifted base tem­po­rar­ily to the DLF Em­po­rio, and now has a spank­ing new space in luxury mall, The Chanakya, open­ing doors to pub­lic shortly, ac­cord­ing to Vogue In­dia.

The 207sq mt space was de­signed by French ar­chi­tec­ture agency RDAI un­der the lead­er­ship of De­nis Mon­tel, and its no-fuss in­te­rior will ap­peal to taste of the de­ter­mined shop­per. In­spired by the pea­cock, the in­te­ri­ors of the space sparkle with iri­des­cent metal­lic fin­ishes.

Start­ing with the silk de­part­ment, the store also houses menswear, wom­enswear and leather goods, says Vogue In­dia. The store also boasts of a pri­vate room for VIP clien­tele and a salon for the jewellery and watch col­lec­tions.

“In­dia has had our at­ten­tion for many years. Be­fore our op­er­a­tions, we had ex­ten­sive col­lab­o­ra­tions with In­dian crafts­men many years ago. Our com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions started ten years ago. Our com­mit­ment was strong and we launched our flag­ship store in Mum­bai. We wanted our store to be a place where we could hold cul­tural events and have the op­por­tu­nity to share more. Our new store in Delhi will be in an el­e­gant high-end des­ti­na­tion and it is a new dis­trict for shop­ping,” said Flo­rian Craen, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent, Sales &Dis­tri­bu­tion, Her­mes, to The Eco­nomic Times.
