Nykaa.com, India’s largest beauty retailer, celebrated the opening of its flagship Nykaa Luxe store as the exclusive beauty retailer in the newly opened lifestyle destination, The Chanakya, by the DLF Group at Chanakyapuri, New Delhi.
The Nykaa Luxe store is spread over 2,500 sq.ft. and offers a unique set of luxe brands across makeup, skincare and fragrances, including M.A.C Cosmetics, Estée Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Christian Dior, Guerlain, Givenchy, Forest Essentials and Kama Ayurveda. As an exclusive offering, the store will showcase for the first time a shop-in-shop experience from Jo Malone London and Tom Ford as well as the entire range of Huda Beauty products. Also available at the store is Nykaa Beauty, the in-house portfolio of beauty products across cosmetics, naturals, bath & body and fragrances.
This new retail concept resembles a luxurious beauty lounge. Focused on experientials, the signature feature of the store is the 100 sq.ft horseshoe shaped vanity area where customers can touch and feel products for a first-hand experience. Also featured is a dedicated social media section framed by the inspirational LED sign ‘Led by Dreams’. The store will regularly present new collections, preview offers, and host makeovers and exclusive reveals as unique experiences for customers.
Nykaa first introduced luxury beauty to the online consumer in 2016 with the launch of M.A.C Cosmetics, Clinique, Bobbi Brown and Estée Lauder. Since then it has expanded its portfolio to include over 50 luxury beauty brands across makeup, skincare and fragrances with the luxe category now accounting for over 15 percent of the total sales at Nykaa. The opening of the Nykaa Luxe flagship store follows in-line with Nykaa’s Omnichannel approach to beauty retail. Since 2015, Nykaa has opened 22 stores across India in two formats – Nykaa Luxe and Nykaa On Trend.
Present for the opening of the Nykaa Luxe store at The Chanakya were Falguni Nayar, founder & CEO, Nykaa.com and Adwaita Nayar, Head-Retail, Nykaa.com.
