Looks like fashion designers are trying to take over the world. After hotels, restaurants and mobile phones, they’re now going for the airports.
San Francisco’s airport is the first to have the pleasure of hosting a Gucci boutique. Already renowned worldwide for its high quality items, Gucci is now omnipresent.
Being paced in an airport, it has a huge potential to generate enormous profits, given that many businessmen are in a hurry and don’t have the time to check a shop that may be on the other side of the city. But now, being right in your face as soon as your plane lands, there’s no excuse for not even taking a look.
The smell of high quality Italian leather hypnotizes its customers, and well, they do pay big money for some of Gucci’s most exquisite handbags or belts.
Other fashion houses that have boutiques in airports so far are Bulgari and Hermes.
