Beauty News: Sisley to launch first ever New York City boutique
Luxury French beauty brand Sisley is to open its first free-standing New York City boutique this December.
The brand’s skincare, make-up and fragrance collections will soon be available at the new West Village boutique located at 343 Bleecker St. The 760-square-foot space will mark the launch of a new store design for Sisley, which draws influences from its heritage as a family owned company. The boutique will also offer Sisley’s renowned beauty treatments within its spa room along with a private make-up area that can be reserved for special occasion make-up needs.
Founded by Hubert d’Ornano in 1976, Sisley remains a family-run empire to this day. Christine d’Ornano, Sisley’s International Vice President and daughter of Hubert d’Ornano, was responsible for hand-selecting a number of the decor items seen in-store, with the goal of creating the look of an intimate but modern apartment drawing influences from Sisley’s Parisian roots, while also incorporating elements from its downtown New York location.
“We wanted the boutique to feel warm and inviting,” said Ms. d’Ornano. “Less like a retail space and more like an apartment where you can come and discuss your skin’s needs, have a facial or have your make up done before a party. A Sisley home in downtown New York.”
Jim Maki, Sisley’s U.S. Executive Vice President, adds, “This new boutique design will blend seamlessly into the neighborhood and we are sure it will become a destination for customers seeking luxurious, effective skincare and make-up products and pampering facial and make-up services.”
