India’s leading luxury accessory brand Hidesign has launched its new store at Grand Hyatt Goa. Uniquely, this is the brand’s only retail presence in a hotel. Catering to a niche target audience of global travellers the store will retail its entire range of signature premium leather accessories that are handcrafted using vegetable tanned, eco-friendly leathers.
It is interesting to note that Goa was one of the first few cities to have a Hidesign store when it began retailing in India in the late 90s. Today, Hidesign continues to grow with Goa, and has strengthened its presence through two new stores this year – the Goa Airport and Grand Hyatt Goa. Hidesign also has a store in Panjim.
Dilip Kapur, Founder & President of Hidesign says, “We are glad to launch our third store in Goa at the Grand Hyatt Goa. The space and its offerings are designed to match the demographics that the city caters to. With the high influx of luxury travellers from across the world, Goa is the ideal choice for a brand like ours.”
The store located at the Galleria, Grand Hyatt Goa will also be home to Hidesign’s partner brands like Chocolates by Mason & Co, Honey and Balms by Last Forest, Travel inspired goods by Le Pondicherry and Soaps by Probiotics House. The brand is proud to promote products that are produced in Hidesign’s hometown Pondicherry and surrounding areas which share similar values of being natural, healthy and artisanal.
The store showcases an extensive collection of products ranging from handbags for women, travel bags, laptop bags, messengers, cross bodies and briefcases for men. New collections such as Wild West, Brooklyn & Manhattan for men, Roaring 20s and Ashes complement Hidesign’s classic styles like East India and the Icon collection. An wide range of small leather goods like wallets and belts, sunglasses, shoes and jackets are also available at the new store. In addition customers can enjoy free shipping and pay Cash on delivery while shopping online at www.hidesign.com
The store is designed like A HIDESIGN BAG using the same elements and expresses the same values. Custom made with great care and detail, the fixtures of the store are hand-made in natural materials such as wood, solid brass and natural grain leather, creating a fresh and unusual look that the brand is recognised for. The approx. 650 sq ft store follows the Hidesign’s new retail format designed by architect Ayaz Basrai from Busride Design who is known for designing some of the coolest, most exciting spaces in India. The store celebrates Hidesign’s unique Indo-French heritage using moulded panels inspired by French interiors with custom tooled brass shelves and marble top antique tables bring in freshness and warmth to the store.
