Montblanc continues to expand its retail presence in India, with the opening of its newest boutique in The Conrad, Bangalore showcasing Maison’s new Neo² retail design concept currently being rolled out globally.
Designed by French designer and interiors architect Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, the 301ft² boutique offers a dynamic and elegant retail environment. The concept presents a pure and uncluttered aesthetic, mixing black, white and wood for a contemporary retail environment with dedicated areas for the four core categories in Montblanc’s portfolio: writing instruments, watches, jewellery, and leather goods.
The selection of refined materials inside the boutique not only express Maison’s European codes of elegance and spirit of craftsmanship but also serve to identify each category by the distinct materials with which they are usually associated.
Watchmaking is brought to life through the use of bronze-sheen brass, leather and wood; black leather and walnut wood reflect Maison’s leather goods expertise; while lacquers and fine metals evoke writing instruments and jewellery.
Franck Juhel, President of Montblanc Middle East, India and Africa said: “We are delighted to extend Montblanc’s presence in Bangalore with our second boutique, following the success of our first opening in Phoenix at Whitefield. We look forward to showcasing the world of Montblanc to many new customers in this progressive and thriving city.”
The new Montblanc boutique is located at The Conrad, Bangalore.
