Parisian department store Le BHV Marais – a subsidiary department store from the Galeries Lafayette Group – launches its first flagship store in Dubai at City Walk in collaboration with MEDS – a multi-format retail operator that currently holds the franchise of Galeries Lafayette, Galeries Lafayette Le Gourmet, Galeries Lafayette L’Outlet & Le BHV Marais in the UAE.
“Le BHV Marais’ first Emirati branch reflects the strong partnership between Galeries Lafayette Group’ and MEDS and is a confirmation on the trust in our company and the fast growing UAE retail market,” says MEDS general manager Pascal Abchee.
Spread across two floors totalling 64,583 sqft – housing fashion, beauty, home and gourmet departments – the store is designed by the architect Kristina Zanic who ensured preserving its Parisian flagship store atmosphere and identity by using wood and stone finishing.
The beauty department on the ground floor represents over 30 of the world’s top names. The same floor houses the trendiest bags, jewellery and timepieces to be matched with the latest fashion collections for women, men and kids by emerging talented designers and renowned brands.
The first floor is dedicated to exquisite home accessories from French cookery to living rooms and bedroom designs, cutlery, table decorations and home appliances.
The gastronomy segment is a foodies’ destination, where kitchen variety is abundant with a large choice of high standard restaurants. Led by the famous executive chef Russell Impiazzi, Galeries Lafayette Le Gourmet now has its second branch at Le BHV Marais. Le Gourmet has also introduced ‘Le Grill’, a new concept specialised in rotisserie and grill.
Le BHV Marais promises to cater to Dubai’s dominantly young and vibrant market with accessible and high-end brands targeting a customer base ranging mainly between 25 and 45 years old.
