EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In partnership with premier travel retailer Hudson Group, leading lingerie and beauty retailer Victoria's Secret has opened a new Beauty & Accessories store in John F. Kennedy International Airport's Terminal 4.

Hudson has enjoyed a rewarding association with JFK IAT for over a decade, and we are glad to be playing a role in the current phase of development. The new program expands the total number of stores we operate in this terminal from 10 to 14."
Noted Alain Maca, President of JFKIAT, LLC, the management company for Terminal 4: "One of the key benefits of Terminal 4's redevelopment to make our terminal the new home of Delta Air Lines at JFK, is that passengers can now enjoy a post-security environment for shopping and dining. Hudson's team has worked closely with our group to deliver a world-class program that will appeal to our diverse passenger mix."
In addition to this new store at JFK T4, Hudson operates Victoria's Secret stores in JFK Terminal 1, LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal and Vancouver International Airport. Other locations are expected to follow in 2014.
The Victoria's Secret brand features a range of functional-yet-chic accessories that add an extra pop of glamour to business trips and weekend getaways alike. Customers will love the branded cosmetic cases and multi-use fashion bags. This season's colors in pebbled leather and Saffiano leather keep her on trend in any destination! The airports' international clientele can also obtain attractive passport holders, phone wallets, travel adaptors and ear buds, plus smart phone and tablet accessories.
Victoria's Secret gets the savvy traveler to her destination with celebrity-level style. Completing the assortment are must-have essentials like so-soft scarves, high-quality sunglasses and those perfect, signature Victoria's Secret panties. It's an incredible way to track down last-minute gifts or spend a long layover shopping on the fly.
The JFK T4 store surrounds every customer with undeniable luxury. The storefront boasts an air of sophistication, while the interior features upscale elements like black-cherry fixtures and eye-catching focal walls.
