Europe’s top-notch shopping centre Galeries Lafayette will soon have a destination in India, and it’s sooner than you expect. All set to open its doors in India in 2024, the Paris-based luxury department store will not only open its flagship store but also a dedicated e-commerce portal for the convenience of the consumers. Located in one of the finest areas of Paris, Boulevard Haussmann is among the top shopping destinations in the city.
From panoramic views to magnificent Art Nouveau cupola (domes), Boulevard Haussmann is a sight to behold, and Galeries Lafayette adds to that scenic vision. And a part of this elegant, magical avant-garde shopping centre will soon be home.
Well, if you thought it was Reliance that was bringing it home, then you are mistaken. The uber-luxurious shopping centre is being brought to India by none other than Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited (ABFRL). Surprisingly, Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail has quite a portfolio when it comes to international brands. ‘The Collective’ is a part of the Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail, and houses select brands Ralph Lauren, Ted Baker, and American Eagle to name a few. Featuring more than 200 international and local brands across different verticals of fashion, lifestyle and food, Galeries Lafayette, in association with ABFRL, aims to fill up India’s luxury department store sector space.

After all, this is where the celebrities reside. The Aditya Birla Group will be opening the leading store in the heart of the city on an area of 90,000 square feet. The high-end shopping centre will open its gates to the public in 2024. As iconic as it can get, the upmarket store chain is being designed to perfection by, Virgile & Partners who have quite an exposure to global architecture.
DLF Emporio is the one-stop destination for all things luxury, and it is only natural for Lafayette’s to have its flagship store located in Delhi’s lavish shopping hub. DLF Emporio which is also one of the largest luxury malls in the country, will see the iconic Paris store spread across an astonishing 65,000 feet. The store in the capital city is expected to be in force in 2025.
