Luxury Row represents an exclusive gathering of some of the finest names in international fashion. Imagine 111,000 square feet marked by palms and these breathtaking boutiques: Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Coach, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Tiffany & Co., Tod’s and Yves Saint Laurent.
While Waikiki shopping trends toward high-end, the Luxury Row shopping district represents the highest-end in Honolulu shopping – and emphasizes its exclusivity via an intimate, artful scale. As luxurious as it is uncommon, this top-notch retail conclave is located at 2100 Kalakaua Avenue. Inside, Luxury Row presents 111,000 square feet of haute Hawaii shopping across eight international boutiques: Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Coach, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Tiffany & Co., Tod’s and Yves Saint Laurent. Labels including Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Hugo Boss and Tod’s showcase European style in an array of ready-to-wear pieces, accessories and jewelry for men and women, as well as posh elements of home décor.
Inside, the Luxury Row locations take care to distinguish themselves: Yves Saint Laurent selected Honolulu’s Luxury Row as one of its few outposts in all of North America; Chanel’s three-story, 12,000-square-foot space here is a flagship for the brand – shop the fine jewelry boutique for exquisite pieces as well as the boutique for signature collectibles, sunglasses and fragrances. The exterior is similarly sophisticated, a streetscape and viable streetscape that is at once inviting and built. Open-air – the essence of Hawaii shopping - accentuates the experience. Slender palms stretch upward and sparkle with light by night. Angular torches punctuate the lush lawn alongside benches and installations of large sculpture. Tropical colors pop brightly in blooming floral baskets hanging from street posts.
The pace along Luxury Row is unhurried. Linger as you shop; boutique staff will tend to every detail. Beyond shopping, Luxury Row transforms throughout the year into a setting for celebrations of art and culture. From late fall into early winter, the boutiques host an opening reception and exhibition of works by local artists known as Hawaii’s Modern Masters. During the annual show, the visual expressions of island creatives hang alongside the stylistic expressions of global designers. In February, The Row fetes the Chinese New Year with a chromatic lion dance.
