On location: Chanel store at Moscow Sheremetyevo airport

with one comment

Chanel beauty boutique at Moscow Sheremetyvo airportMost airports are lucky to have a full Chanel makeup counter in their general duty-free shops, but the Russians, those lovers of luxury, take it up a notch. The new terminal D at Moscow Sheremetyevo airport – which felt incredibly empty the two times I passed through late last year – has its own dedicated Chanel beauty boutique, offering a full range of cosmetics, skincare and fragrances to the discerning traveller.

I didn’t go in due to lack of time, but took this picture of the shop entrance – very posh and decorated for the Christmas season – where you can see the large TV screen showing the brand’s commercials and promotional videos. The interior decoration is also lavish, full of sleek black counters and beautiful displays showcasing the brand’s products in the best possible way. I don’t think I’ve seen such a luxurious airport presentation for a single brand before.

On location: MAC pop-up shop at Singapore Changi airport

without comments

Just in time for the holidays, MAC Cosmetics has opened a pop-up shop at Singapore Changi airport’s budget terminal, which serves mostly Asian low-cost carriers and regional flights.

The 25sq m space is staffed by MAC makeup artists who will demonstrate techniques, assist consumers in discovering new products and provide expert information on international beauty trends.

The temporary store will be available at the location for six to nine months, according to MAC, and was opened in partnership with the airport company and beauty retailer Nuance-Watson Singapore. MAC also said the pop-up project was in response to increasing international demand for the brand.

While I haven’t seen the store in person (and have never visited the budget terminal at Changi as I usually fly there from London), the shop looks good from the pictures I was sent. Do leave a comment if you visit it during your travels!

On location: La Prairie at Buenos Aires International airport

La Prairie counter at Buenos Aires International airport

I have cheated a bit in today’s post as I haven’t been to the store myself, but as I hope you all can visit Buenos Aires one day I thought it’d be useful to know what to expect when you shop there!

Luxury brand La Prairie has recently opened its flagship duty-free location at Buenos Aires International airport in Argentina. Covering 18sq m, the space is the largest airport counter for the brand in the Americas. For reference, La Prairie only considers two other airport locations as flagship stores: Zürich International airport in Switzerland and Hong Kong International airport.

The store is decorated in the brand’s white and silver colours with materials including white marble, brushed aluminium and glass. It also offers the full range of La Prairie skincare, foundations and fragrances. It looks gorgeous, but then the whole shop (run by local retailer Interbaires) seems very impressive, particularly on the beauty front.
