Innovation & imagination driving brand curiority, footfall and pounds in the till.
Crowds of curious shoppers jostle for a place in front of the virtual mirror outside the handful of Rayban Stores worldwide. Technology that has been a favourite online feature allows the willing to select their favourite classic Rayban shape and apply to their face. Once fixed to the face the frames follow the model as they twist and rotate their face in front of the camera.
The result is magnetic and instant window promotion, and in-store fame for the unwitting participant.
Having trouble getting passers-by to stick to your windows?
Join me on a trip through Hackett’s worldwide flagship store…
Hackett’s new home is where the heart is.
Moving 200 yards along Regent Street has taken the lifestyle retailer a million miles to a three level elegant emporium combining space to breathe with intimate corners and surprises around every eloquent elevation. Flagship brand distinction, engagement on an emotional level is the name of the Hackett game; and it plays to win.
A selection of seductive services supply the brand soul, from the Beefeater Gin Bar, quenching the dry thirst, to the tailoring shop, and personalised monogram bar, wetting the appetite for that unique purchase. From top to bottom, a basement boutique for “young Britons” furnished with an ornamental tree whose live branches mark the seasons, a second floor Saturday shoe shining experience, the store pulls out the stops as it starts to create the very British buzz that is Hackett.
Bathed in a blissful blue…
the Asics flagship stores exude a confidence that comes from being one of the premium performance footwear brands. There is authority and integrity in the regimented displays, the streamlined athletic mannequins and the tactile surfaces of the store.
Focal to the proposition and the adventure through the store is the footwear laboratory where potential purchasers can participate in a plethera of tests to find the perfect footwear for their desired activities.
“Let for your Feet Speak” states the lab in a store that speaks for itself.
There are always ways to bring your brand and product to life for the customer.
It may not be as obvious or dramatic as the Asics footwear lab, but if there is a brand, a proposition and a product there are always stories to bring alive!
On the back of surging sales, TK Maxx plots its path to bargain brand domination with a central London flagship store in the heart of fashionista Covent Garden.
The selected assortment tailors to the trendy and the cash-strapped coveters of current labels. New to this store is the Goldlabel departments where only the very best premium brands rub shoulders literally with each other.
GoldLabel revels in an upscale store design with graphic wall bays, low density VM and vintage rails, whilst the whole store stands in splendid glory on wooden floors and bathes in the glow of intimate spotlighting.
Familiar to many, accessible to all and now attractive to a whole new demographic doyen.
