New store features light-toned white oak wood and lavish leathers
Swiss watchmaker Chopard has revealed the re-opening of its Bahrain boutique located in the Ritz-Carlton Manama following a renovated design by famous French architect Thierry W. Despont.
The boutique features light-toned white oak wood, lavish leathers, silk and velvet. Despont chose to maintain the plush theme of the former store while adding a modern touch with well-defined areas for jewellery, watches and accessories.
The architect also focused on creating a sense of intimacy to allow customers to stroll around the store in a relaxing manner.
“With these environments, we want to encourage our clients to discover the multiple facets of the Chopard universe,” said the brand’s co-presidents and artistic director Caroline Scheufele.
Chopard’s new boutique is located in the shopping arcade of the luxury hotel.
“The re-opening of this renovated boutique embodies our commitment to continuously offer a unique luxurious experience to our clientele and is symbolic of our enduring partnership with Chopard,” said Adbul Qassim Shirazi, Managing Director at Bahrain Jewellery Centre – the brand’s local retail partner.For all the latest fashion trends from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
