Luxury jewelry brand The House of Harry Winston has opened its first retail “salon” in Nanjing, China, inside luxury shopping haven Deji Plaza in Xinjiekou. This marks the brand’s seventh store in China.
The 2,300-square-foot salon is designed to capture the elegance and intimacy of a private estate. A contemporary ground-level space is accessible from inside the emporium and features the House’s signature navy blue and gold façade. Throughout the interior, the House’s signature soft grey color palette complements custom-designed lacquer, antique bronze furniture and bespoke crystal chandeliers, along with the House’s signature black and white starburst motif. Dedicated galleries highlight the breadth of the brand’s offerings, from one-of-a-kind high-end jewelry to wedding day jewels to timepieces.
In honor of the Nanjing opening, the Harry Winston salon will also display a custom work of art that marries signature elements of the House with the rich culture of Nanjing. A whimsical illustration depicts two lion statues adorned in gold before the iconic Winston gates and surrounded by plum blossoms, the symbolic flower of China, while birds in flight represent the union between the city of Nanjing and Harry Winston.
“We are pleased to announce the opening of our new salon in the prestigious Deji Plaza,” said Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston in a statement. “Nanjing is renowned for its role in research, education and tourism, and today we are proud to deepen our roots in a city that is known for its rich history and culture as we continue to bring the Harry Winston brand to new audiences throughout the country.”
