The Reliance group by Mukesh Ambani recently launched India’s biggest luxury mall, Jio World Plaza, in Mumbai, looking to redefine urban luxury at its core.
Covering an impressive 750,000 square feet and stretching across four spacious floors, this mall currently hosts 24 high-end luxury brand stores. And here’s the exciting part: they’re gearing up to introduce a whopping 42 more outlets between November and April. This includes some global brands making their debut in the Indian market, so you can look forward to a truly international shopping experience.
The Jio World Plaza isn’t just your typical luxury shopping spot; it’s also a jaw-dropping architectural wonder. The brilliant minds from the US-based TVS and the Reliance team came together to create this masterpiece, drawing inspiration from the graceful lotus flower and elements of nature.
As you stroll through, you’ll be captivated by the flagship stores of iconic brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Cartier, Dior, Bulgari, and Muji, all exuding a grand presence. And the excitement doesn’t stop there – international favorites such as Valentino, Versace, and Tiffany & Co. are getting ready to welcome shoppers very soon. It’s a shopping experience that’s as impressive as it is luxurious!
Store managers and staff have been thrilled to see a steady increase in the number of visitors pouring in by the hour, including luxury enthusiasts and fashion lovers.
One of the standout features at the plaza is the Paul & Shark store, a renowned Italian luxury fashion brand known for its yachting-inspired clothing and accessories. They’ve created something unique here – it’s the brand’s very first global experiential ice room. In this cool space, customers can actually try on their stylish jackets, which range from ₹70,000 to ₹2 lakh.
The manager of Muji India is equally excited, mentioning that this is their biggest store in India, covering an impressive 12,000 square feet. They’ve got a dedicated team of 30 executives, all ready to serve their customers. No need to worry about awareness either – buyers are well-informed about what they want, and they’re actively heading to our stores.
Mitrajit Bhattacharya, a true luxury aficionado and the founder and president of The Horologists, was lucky enough to be at the Plaza for an exclusive preview on October 31st. He shared his thoughts, saying, “This is a fantastic development for the luxury industry. The growth of India’s luxury market really depends on places like these luxury malls taking root.” It’s a positive sign for the future!
Dior is opening its very first men’s clothing store here, marking a special debut. But that’s not all! Louis Vuitton is gearing up to launch their new flagship store, and it’s going to be the largest international luxury outlet in India. And for the little ones, there’s a delightful surprise too – a pop-up store for Ed-A-Mamma, the children’s clothing brand by the talented Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt. There’s something for everyone to look forward to!
