Prada debuts in Copenhagen inside the prestigious Illum department store

Milan, 2016-Nov-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Prada opens its first flagship store in Copenhagen, inside the prestigious department store Illum – which La Rinascente took over in 2013 – located in Ostergade, one of the main shopping streets in the city.

The external façade is characterised by a sequence of display windows and light-boxes, creating a design in harmony with the architecture of the building.

The new space covers a total surface area of 900 square metres over two retail levels and offers the women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, footwear, accessories and leather goods collections. The store concept combines Prada’s consolidated heritage with the freshness of modernity. Not forgetting references to iconic Italian designs, such as Osvaldo Borsani’s velvet chairs, reproduced exclusively for Prada.

The first space features walls covered in watercoloured canvas in shades of deep green, a black-and-white checkerboard floor, glass display cases with green Alpine marble shelves, and beamed ceilings in Prada green; offering a modern interpretation of ceilings found in historic Italian buildings.

A series of doorways framed in green marble lead to the adjacent areas: shaded-green canvas wall coverings and shelving characterize the area dedicated to the women’s leather goods and accessories collections; light blades of acrylic and display walls distinguish the women’ ready-to-wear one.

Bold colors define the rooms where footwear is offered: watercoloured canvas is of a turquoise hue, as is the seating upholstery and even the display shelves.

An Alpine green marble staircase leads to the upper floor. Here, the video walls, the chequered floors and the beamed ceilings give a masculine attitude. The canvas is in shades of air force blue, as is the velvet for the chairs. The men’s footwear room features the air force blue shade, with grey velvet chairs and geometric-patterned carpeting.

The men’s ready-to-wear collections’ area is distinguished by a number of elements such as the narrow-plank ebony flooring and shaded-green canvas walls. Iron and glass display cases, green velvet chairs and coloured carpeting give the space elegance and character.

Pandora Jewellery Line Launches Online Mag

The Copenhagen-based jeweller behind the Pandora bracelets range is set to venture into online publishing to help it to stay in contact with its millions of customers worldwide.

The first issue of the online magazine will launch on 20th June 2011 and will be sent to the 1.6 million members of their website-based Pandora Club.

The magazine will feature behind the scenes insights into the brand, fashion shoots, style tips and the stories behind customer’s purchases of Pandora jewellery and bracelets. Published six times per year, the magazine will initially launch in an international format which the company eventually hopes to be able to adapt with local content such as special events and promotions.

The launch of the magazine marks an important step in the evolution of the company. Since the UK launch in 2006 the company’s product range, which now includes rings and watches, has been selling at a phenomenal rate. The company has managed supply and demand successfully, due in large part to its integrated designs, manufactures and distribution.

Founded in 1982, Pandora jewellery is today sold in more than 55 countries on six continents through over 10,000 points of sale, including more than 450 Pandora branded concept stores as well as online from stores such as thejewelhut.co.uk.

Whilst the financial projections were made successfully, what could not have been seen is the way in which consumers have taken the brand to their hearts. Pandora bracelets have become very different from a standard jewellery product; it has taken on a life of its own and has become a part an important constituent of the lives of its wearers. This symbiotic relationship has created many repeat customers who have made their charm bead collection an integral part of their lives.

Mikkel Berg, executive marketing director, quoted in a recent Marketing Week article, said: “This magazine rewards our customers’ loyalty and gives new opportunities for them to share their thoughts with each other and the company.”
