Tory Burch Roaming Pop-Up is Moving to Jeddah

dsc08748-03

Installations in Riyadh and Jeddah include a unique digital experience.


New York — October 2021 — Tory Burch brought a touch of New York City to Saudi Arabia with a roaming pop-up featuring the Fall/Winter 2021 collection, inspired by the city Tory calls home and where she founded her brand. The first-ever Tory Burch popup in the Kingdom launched at the Riyadh Park Mall on October 13 and will be open through Oct. 27. The installation then travels to the Red Sea Mall in Jeddah where it will be in place from November 3 through 17. A unique digital experience, including access to exclusive products and an engaging game, complements the experience.tb-1-5in-t-monogram-jacquard-belt-80751-in-hazelnut-copy

The space is distinguished by immense rattan-and-white-oak apples that nod to the seasonal inspiration—New York City is affectionately known as the Big Apple—and serve as charming displays for a beautiful assortment of products across ready-to-wear, handbags, footwear, and jewelry, including the iconic Lee Radziwill Double Bag, the new  Good Luck Trainer,  and the bestselling T Monogram collection with shoes and handbags in classic navy and, new this season, hazelnut.tb-artist-dress-79813-in-blue-fog-copy

Customers are invited to shop the collection on iPads that are positioned throughout the space and to connect to the brand’s e-commerce site at toryburch.sa. A landing page dedicated to the popup welcomes visitors with rich storytelling, including a timeline of Tory Burch’s presence in the Middle East, and an engaging digital game, T Monogram Catch; players can customize the gaming experience by selecting their preferred handbag silhouette and colorway to catch colorful T Monogram medallions as they drift down the screen. Visitors may also choose to shop at the Tory Burch boutiques in the malls where the popup is being hosted.

The T Monogram is an exciting new addition to the Tory Burch collection. When Tory launched the brand, she created a logo that was a design element of its own. A classic serif T and its mirror image encased in a circle, inspired by the geometry of Moroccan architecture and interiors by David Hicks. Meticulously crafted in traditional jacquard and fine leather, in an unconventional yellow and classic navy. The collection speaks to the artisanal allure and timelessness of great style.

Pasha de Cartier’s First Bespoke Night Soiree in the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia

170

An Immersive Journey Into Pasha’s Legacy and Future.


Marks a monumental moment for Cartier in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as the brand hosted their first ever exclusive soiree in Riyadh, in celebration of the relaunch of the Pasha de Cartier wristwatch. In an ode to its innovative debut, the special party offered an experiential journey exhibition, and was celebrated in presence of close friends of the Maison and highly discerning clientele.240

Set within Riyadh’s Al Faisaliah tower garden, Cartier’s VIP clients, regional celebrities, top regional press, and key opinion leaders came together to celebrate the relaunch of the Pasha de Cartier watch – an iconic creation that made its mark in the 1980’s. Guests were greeted by a grand façade entrance and arch, embodying Pasha’s signature circle and square. All were enchanted by an immersive experience tunnel, leading to a wondrous exhibition highlighting Pasha’s past and present offerings. In an honorable nod, Cartier lit up Riyadh’s very first skyscraper with the brands sparkling and signature red, respectfully idolizing the longstanding relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The timepiece’s aesthetic codes were projected on to the colossal Al Faisaliah tower, shining with Cartier’s logo reflection with shimmering lights creating dazzling formations. In a truly historic moment, attendees were left beaming with pride and admiration.2-drone

The highly anticipated relaunch exhibition showcased a special range of patrimony pieces flown in from Geneva to Saudi Arabia, including 1990 models – Pasha de Cartier wristwatch with self-winding movement and rotating bezel in yellow gold, and Pasha de Cartier wristwatch with self-winding movement, minute repeater, perpetual calendar, and moon phases featuring a leather strap. Watch connoisseurs were delighted to view the unique collection featuring decades of rich heritage and exquisite craftsmanship. Adding sparkle to the occasion, also displayed was a stunning array of prestigious high jewelry, a Pasha perfume corner along with an interactive touch and try station.243

Cartier’s guests partied the night away with hip tunes by Saudi DJ’s Dish Dash, taking center stage. All were also welcomed to an interactive stage surrounded by the watch’s numerals and reveled in a series of further activations including a live band, cigar lounge, and a photo moment starring a showbolt robotic arm. Introduced as a first in the world of luxury brands, guests had the chance to take Grammy-like stop motion 15-second videos shot by the bot.156

Distinguished as the ‘watch of achievers’, Cartier announced their new Pasha tribe members during the exclusive soiree: Saudi fashion designer Arwa Al Banawi, and DJ & Producer duo Dish Dash. In the 1980’s, Pasha’s unique and flamboyant design established its position as the ‘golden boys’ watch, symbolizing power and achievement paired with a hedonist lifestyle. Over the past decade, the watch’s power statement evolved to suit a new generation of ‘achievers’ valuing self-expression and diversity.184

We’ve replanted 17,000 Almond trees and counting!

“You plant pieces of wood with three bits of roots on the ground in the middle of the stones and you think what’s going to happen? And then, after three years, we see the first flowers and about ten small almonds. And at this moment we are proud and proud. And then we tell ourselves that this is it, the adventure begins. But it is not an adventure of a year or two. It is an adventure for 40, 45, 50 years. Somewhere, it’s a secret. You say to yourself: I have to live to see them grow old – we’ll go with them.”

JEAN-PIERRE, Almond Producerloccitane_almond-collection_1-copy
