Victoria's Secret Opens in LAX TBIT, in Partnership with Hudson Group
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Nov. 25, 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 Los Angeles International Airport's Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).
The new store will focus on an iconic, fashion-forward range of beauty products and accessories designed for the modern jet-setter. Beauty shoppers will find prestige fragrances like the FiFi Award-winning Victoria's Secret Bombshell and Sexy Little Things Noir Tease, just-launched collections like the new Victoria, and perennial favorites like the most-loved VS Fantasies. Travel-ready items such as signature lip glosses and body-care products will also be featured.
Notes Joe DiDomizio, President & CEO of Hudson Group: "Our new LAX Bradley West stores best demonstrate the company's strength as a complete travel retail operator: from the very best travel essentials concept (Hudson) to many worldwide luxury brands, including Victoria's Secret. For that we can thank the growing reputation of our marketing and merchandising team, and the support of our parent company, Dufry. We are also grateful to our local LA business partners that are part of the joint venture that operates these stores."
In addition to this new store at TBIT, Hudson operates Victoria's Secret stores in JFK Terminal 1 and Vancouver International Airport. Another is scheduled to open early next month in JFK Terminal 4, with other locations 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 LAX TBIT store surrounds every customer with undeniable luxury. The modern facade and dynamic storefront boast an air of sophistication, while the interior features upscale elements like black-cherry fixtures and eye-catching focal walls. The store will also showcase both its brand identity and range of products with a gallery of iconic black and white images and a video wall that broadcasts footage of the Victoria's Secret Angels. It gives new meaning to the words sexy, sophisticated and forever young.
