Most likely before the middle of next month, that is December 2013, Polo Ltd one of the top luxury outfits in Nigeria would add another feather to its already over filled luxury feathered body. The first class brand would be launching/unveiling/opening a new baby as an arm of their luxury business that would be called-The Avenue.
The Avenue which is a super luxury lifestyle store, the likes of those you see at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges etc would be opening on the first floor at the famous Polo Towers, at 166, Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
This new initiative we hear is the baby of the very hardworking executive director of the company in the person of Jennifer Obayuwana, the famous first child of the owner of the business. Jennifer over the last few months had been traversing the world signing many deals and strategic relationships with some of the biggest and renowned brands from the best capitals of the world and we are all about to see the fruits of all this trips.
According to our findings The Avenue would be stocking brands like Gucci, D&G, Jimmy Choo and Balenciaga. Not only are they going to be stocking these brands, they have apparently signed franchise agreements with the brands stated above, so the way it goes is that as soon as the new collections of this brands are released abroad, you can bet you will see them in store at The Avenue. One other famous brand we hear you will see loads of at the lifestyle store is that of Sophie Hulme, the British Fashion Designer made famous for her bag collection.
So fashionistas, style cognoscenti, collectors et al should get ready for a fantastic time of shopping. We recently had a glimpse of the new store and all we could exclaim was WOW! The decor is unbelievably world class, we are so sure that no expense was spared in putting the place together;The lightnings, the shelves, the sits etc speaks only of class and distinction.
Work is ongoing at a high pace at the location as we speak, so that the store can be declared open in December to take advantage of the Christmas season sales that most store owners believes is always very good.
Kudos to Jennifer for another winner.
