On June 17, 2016, Skagen opened its first retail store in France along the storied Champs-Ã‰lysÃ©e in Paris.
â€œThe opportunity to represent ourselves in a renowned fashion and shopping city like Paris is one weâ€™re incredibly excited about,â€ says Anne Cashill, Senior Vice President of Skagen. â€œThe new store will make Skagen more readily available not only to fashionable Paris locals but to millions of tourists that visit here each year.â€
The Paris location, Skagenâ€™s ninth worldwide, features a street-facing retail space that showcases Skagenâ€™s latest collections in open displays that let customers interact with products. Separated by a courtyard, a second room serves as a customization studio where customers can have their purchases engraved or embossed with personalized messages. Both spaces bear Skagenâ€™s clean, contemporary aesthetic.
Skagen hosted a press event and evening cocktail party on June 28 to celebrate the opening.
