After the successful launch of its stores in Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai, Italian luxury sportswear brand Paul&Shark recently launched its store in Chennai. Paul&Shark has entered India through an equal joint venture with Reliance Brands Ltd – a part of Reliance Industries.
Paul&Shark is a lifestyle sportswear brand distinguished by the unmistakable “shark logo”. This distinctive insignia has over the years become synonymous with freedom, casual elegance and comfort around the world. The Paul&Shark consumer is sporty, well off, travels for business or for pleasure and plays at least a couple of sports but above all he loves the weekend and relaxing outdoors.
Spread across 2000 sq.ft. the Paul&Shark store located at the luxury wing at Express Avenue Mall, Chennai offers the Indian consumers a complete menswear collection that can be worn in diverse social occasions like workplace, holiday, leisure time and traveling. The summer collection includes a bright and colorful selection of casual yet elegant polos and shirts, trousers, shorts, lightweight and technical outerwear which can stylishly teamed with fine accessories and footwear.
Designed by the Paul&Shark Creative Team, the store implements a balanced distribution of space in an environment characterized by extremely elegant and sophisticated design yet functional in line with the contemporary standards.
Commenting on the launch Darshan Mehta, President & CEO, Reliance Brands Ltd, said “We are proud to be the early movers in bringing the first men’s luxury brand to Chennai. Chennai has a rich textile history and heritage (we gave the name “Madras checks” to the world!) and a tradition of discerning consumers that appreciate fine craftsmanship. With new age industries such as automobiles, IT, knowledge sourcing etc., the city now also has a growing tribe of young, cosmopolitan and trading up customers that are international in their mindsets.”
