So by now we all know that Harvey Nichols will open in Kuwait very very soon in the new Avenues Phase III section. Kuwait’s first-ever international luxury department store is managed and operated by M.H. Alshaya Co.
I met up with the Harvey Nichols team recently and here is some insider scoop to increase our fashion suspense and keep us on our toes until the opening! Did you know that the 10,000 m2 (107,000 ft2) store will spread on two floors? That's almost double the size of Debenhams in Phase I.
Get ready to max out your credit cards ladies and gents, coz Harvey Nichols Kuwait will cover an entire spectrum of premium international brands from fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. They'll be stocking close to 500 luxury brands ranging from classic styles to new, avant-garde pieces from emerging and edgy designers. Think Vivienne Westwood, Isabel Marant, Zagliani, Cambridge Satchel, Nancy Gonzalez, and Maison du Posh.
Expect to find exclusive ranges, especially designed and commissioned for Harvey Nichols Kuwait, such as by Carlos Miele for Harvey Nichols Kuwait. You will also have an extensive collection of denim brands like J Brand. And for men you'll have Balenciaga, Lanvin and Kenzo.
The selection of shoes will be unrivaled: covering a 200 square meter space for women, the most glamorous pairs from Rupert Sanderson, Brian Atwood and Jeffrey Campbell.
And to top it all off, they will also be launching new luxury dining concept, Veranda, which will take upscale dining in Kuwait to a new level never seen before.
