The 835-sq.-meter store will be located at 65 Avenue des Champs Elysees in Paris and, in the brand’s true aesthetic, will incorporate an eclectic mix of vintage furniture and props from the US and France.
“The Champs Elysees store will serve as a true flagship for our brand in France and will further anchor our significant retail presence in Europe,” said Fred Gehring, Chief Executive Officer of Tommy Hilfiger Group. "Champs Elysees is one of the most renowned avenues in the world, with a truly international clientele. It is an important milestone in our continued efforts to establish anchor stores in every major city around the world, and also reflects our firm belief in the potential for future growth in France."

This flagship will be the perfect European home to bring our classic American cool to a global audience."
