Rivoli opens Blancpain boutique in Dubai Mall
Dubai, January 13, 2009
The Rivoli Group has opened its flagship Blancpain boutique in the region’s latest retail hub – The Dubai Mall.
The new Blancpain store dedicated to displaying the collection of the world’s oldest watch brand was officially inaugurated by member of the board of directors of Swatch Group Nayla Hayek and managing director, Rivoli Group, Ramesh Prabhakar.
The exquisite boutique reflects the same spirit that pervades the workshops of Blancpain’s master watchmakers. The store has a distinctly rich outlook with subtle tones of elegance and a warm and inviting atmosphere, said a senior Rivoli official.
Aesthetically it creates a unique ambience characteristic of the brand’s touch of luxury and elegance. This boutique is designed to offer consumers an insight into traditional Swiss watchmaking and an understanding of the core values of the Blancpain brand.
“The Swatch Group’s association with the Rivoli Group has indeed been very positive and successful in strengthening our brands’ presence in this prestigious market in the Middle East. The Group’s retailing expertise is well aligned with the growth path for Blancpain and we are glad to extend our business further with our third monobrand boutique in Dubai at the city’s latest retail landmark – The Dubai Mall,” said Hayek.
The Rivoli Group, a pioneer in the field of luxury retailing, continues to provide the UAE market with access to some of the world's most widely recognized and respected consumer brand names.
The opening of the Blancpain boutique at The Dubai Mall is yet another symbol of their successful relationship with the Swatch Group - the number one manufacturer of finished watches in the world.
“The opening of the Blancpain boutique is a step in a series of initiatives towards opening many more monobrand boutiques for our premium luxury brands. This new Blancpain boutique is another step for the Rivoli Group to offer our premium brand-conscious and loyal consumers even greater choice and an unforgettable shopping experience,” said Prabhakar.
This exquisite boutique is the third in a row of Blancpain boutiques that Rivoli has launched in Dubai. It started with the boutique at their Emirates Towers store and recently another Blancpain boutique was unveiled at Burjuman.
Now with this new flagship store at The Dubai Mall, watch connoisseurs can expect to discover some unique timepieces from this heritage watch brand. – TradeArabia News Service
