Iconic Parisian cultural and fashion hotspot Le BHV Marais has announced that it will open a flagship location in Dubai’s City Walk plaza in September of this year. The move is part of a partnership with ADMIC, the same retail leader responsible for the Middle East franchise of Galeries Lafayette in The Dubai Mall.
As Nicolas Houzé, CEO of Galeries Lafayette and Le BHV Marais, explains, “As our Galeries Lafayette brand has achieved great success in The Dubai Mall since its opening in 2009, we are very pleased to bring to Dubai residents and international visitors in the UAE all the know-how of our Le BHV Marais store. With a unique expertise in home and fashion products, we are convinced that this new Le BHV Marais flagship in Dubai will be welcomed with great enthusiasm and will strengthen our presence in the region.”
Since 1856, Le BHV Marais has been a premiere destination for unique lifestyle items and creative fashion, offering customers over 900 different brands that range from accessible to leading-edge fashions. This is the second store to open in the region, with the first being in Beirut, Lebanon in 1998.
The Dubai outlet will be designed by architect Kristina Zanic, and will consist of a 6,000 square-meter space spread over two floors. “The store will combine several diverse materials — such as wood and stone — to recreate the ambiance of the Paris flagship store,” the brand shared in a recent statement.
