Iconic Skincare brand launches its third store in Mumbai at Palladium
This evening celebrity friends of Kiehl’s – Rahul Khanna, Sidhartha Mallya, Sameera Reddy and Arjun Khanna along with Director of Kiehl’s, India, Marco Riggio and Brand Manager of Kiehl’s India, Anurag Tyagi inaugurated the newest flagship store at the Palladium Mall in Lower Parel.
Founded in 1851, Kiehl’s has been dedicated to serving efficacious formulations for skin and hair made with a unique blend of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal and medicinal knowledge.
The venerable New York based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair preparations, Kiehl’s made its debut in India in November 2010, with its flagship store at the Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj in New Delhi, followed by a second store opening in Khan Market. The iconic beauty brand came to Mumbai in December 2011 with stores at Inorbit Mall and Phoenix Market City, making this their third opening in this city itself, inviting all in the central suburb to treat themselves to the many cult products that have been hand-picked by the Kiehl’s experts.
Friend of Kiehl’s, Rahul Khanna, who confesses having used Kiehl’s grooming products almost exclusively for the last 20 years, said, “As a south Bombay resident, I am overjoyed to finally welcome Kiehl’s to my neck of the woods. Now I don’t have to travel very far to replenish supplies of my favourite grooming products.”
Said Sidhartha Mallya, “Kiehl’s is a brand I have a lot of respect for..not only because it has some fantastic products for male grooming, but also because of their social responsibility. I have used their products for some time now, and won’t look anywhere else for my skincare needs.”
“I’ve used Kiehl’s for many years and have always taken comfort in knowing that wherever I may be in the world shooting or travelling, there’s always a Kiehl’s store nearby and I can pick up my favourite products. I’m thrilled to know that Kiehl’s is growing in India and excited that their centrally located store is finally open at Palladium in Mumbai” said Sameera Reddy at the launch.
‘We are excited to open our 5th store in India and the 3rd in Mumbai in less than a year. It was crucial to open a store in a central location such as Palladium to serve our customers in this part of the city” said Marco Riggio, Director, Kiehl’s Since 1851, India
Anurag Tyagi, Brand Manager, Kiehl’s Since 1851, India, said “Backed by popular demand, Kiehl’s is thrilled to be opening its 3rd boutique in Mumbai in South Mumbai’s popular shopping destination- Palladium at High Street Phoenix. It’s the perfect opportunity to once again excite Kiehl’s patrons with a flavour of New York City’s 160 year old efficacious skincare formulas that come with a dash of quirkiness so characteristic of Manhattan’s East Village. We hope our customers continue to love us the way they have over the last 2 years and that we continue to reach out to them in the form of many more Kiehl’s stores.”
The guests were welcomed by the Kiehl’s beloved, quirky and celebrated mascot Mr. Bones. The store will soon house the Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends Collection, which will take the customers to a wonderful journey of the exotic locales from different parts of the world. Comprising of a fragrance, body lotion and cleanser, the range has been developed by David Suffit.
