The ever-growing popularity of online purchases has changed the dynamics in the retail scene, and enhancing shoppers’ experience at physical stores has become more vital. To further improve its image, world-renowned luxury brand Cartier has recently renovated its flagship store located in the heart of Hong Kong’s retail district, making it a must-visit boutique in town.
Luxury brand Cartier’s flagship boutique in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong has recently undergone a lavish transformation. The refurbished store is now triple in size, unveiling a dazzling new design concept that displays an impeccable combination of Chinese art and the brand’s aesthetic traditions.
Conceived by internationally renowned interior designer Bruno Moinard, the 982-sqm store features an impressive mix of onyx, bronze and white marble on the exterior and a subtle shade of champagne that exudes a more contemporary style. This demonstrates the brand’s energetic image against the backdrop of an emerging generation of young luxury buyers. One major innovation aimed at enhancing the retail experience is a stylish area inside the ground entrance where Cartier Ambassadors greet customers and help arrange appointments for them to optimise their shopping time. Curved walls in the dedicated salons also create a softer and more inviting atmosphere where comfortable lounges encourage customers to relax and linger.
In a highly competitive marketplace where customer experience has become an integral part of any retail business, frontline investments are crucial, especially in the luxury sector.
