The London district of Knightsbridge is unquestionably a shopper’s Shangri-La. The mighty towers of Harrods overlook this big spenders’ walk of fame, where myriad British pounds are traded for the most exclusive goods on the market. And just recently, Brompton Road welcomed a new fancy resident. Lavishly emptying your purse is now also possible in Bugatti’s very first fashion store.
Dark wood, chocolatey leather and glimmering marble meet in an elaborate interior that breathes luxury and sophisticated chic. This is the place where the French car brand proudly sells the men’s clothing assortments Ettore Bugatti and Bugatti-Performance Luxury. The store will distribute some limited-edition capsule collections as well.
Both owners and fans are encouraged to browse the polished shelves of Knightsbridge’s latest glam boutique. Most of them will probably not cross the wobbly bridge between perusing and paying, though. Both design and location betray a target group that roams a wealthier segment of the social pyramid.
Currently, the British capital is the only city in the world to host a Bugatti fashion store, but that honour will wane soon. Bugatti has a five-year plan to open up to 30 extra stores in major metropolises all around the globe. Inhabitants of Tokyo, Dubai, Doha, Paris and Milan are the next hubs to accommodate a Bugatti outlet, before this striving retail business ventures overseas and conquers yet unknown US locations in 2016.
