PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Simon, a global leader in retail real estate, announced today that Stanford Shopping Center is further elevating the shopping experience at this premier shopping destination with the impending arrivals of high-fashion retailer Hermès and the French luxury house Cartier.
French high fashion and luxury goods manufacturer, Hermès will open a 6,000-square-foot store in the heart of the newly transformed center, near Neiman Marcus. Slated to open in late 2017 or early 2018, the arrival of Hermès at Stanford Shopping Center reinforces Simon's commitment to the community and meeting the demands of the sophisticated clientele that visits the center.
The Hermès Palo Alto boutique will present a comprehensive offering of men's, women's, home and equestrian collections to local Stanford residents, Silicon Valley and the Stanford University community. This store will be the first new U.S. market location for Hermès in over five years.
The French luxury jewelry designer and watchmaker Cartier will open this fall adjacent to Hermès. The new Palo Alto boutique was designed in-house to reflect the look and feel of Architect Bruno Moinard.
In addition to Hermès and Cartier, Stanford Shopping Center has welcomed many well-known retailers to the center during the summer of 2016, including British fashion house AllSaints, the first U.S. location for women's Italian fashion brand Luisa Spagnoli, outdoor lifestyle brand The North Face, British perfume house Penhaligon's, Pink Posy Bake Shop, Spanish jewelry brand UNOde50, men's dress and casual shoe retailer Allen Edmonds, sustainable fashion brand Amour Vert, Jenni Kayne's refined wardrobe and home essentials inspired by modern California living, as well as indoor cycling reimagined for home by Peloton.
Alex and Ani and Anthropologie will enthusiastically open their doors to Stanford Shopping Center guests later this fall.
"With every new retailer that opens and every announcement that is made, we are solidifying our commitment to the center, the Palo Alto community and our dedicated shoppers," said Julie Kelly, director of marketing and business development at Stanford Shopping Center. "We love adding amazing new options to our retail mix, especially stores that have chosen our center as their new home in Northern California."
Visitors to the center can also stroll the beautiful gardens, stretch out on the lawn and enjoy The Plaza during special events. Highlights of this space include a new infinity edge water feature along with the seasonal rotation of blooming flowers.
