HERMÈS LAUNCHES SILK BAR POP-UP SPACE IN NYC


French luxury house Hermès is opening a pop-up ‘Silk Bar’ in New York City to celebrate the release of its new Silk Knots app, which launched in September on iOS devices.
The concept store, which the brand has previously deployed in Taipei, London and Hong Kong, sees Hermès sell a series of scarves, ties and other accessories.
The Silk Bar is located within the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle, Manhattan. The NYC location comes with a retro ‘Diner’ theme and big neon Hermès signs, including a ‘daily silk specials’ board.
Also available is the new Maxi Twilly line which launched last week (scarves available for $290), but the main aim of the pop-up is to drive customers to the label’s main stores.
Visitors to the pop-up are also encouraged to use the Silk Knots app, which teaches users about the history of the famous carré, provides fun tutorials explaining different knotting techniques, and lets you upload photos of yourself in your new Hermès looks.

It was only a few years ago, it seems, that I set out to climb the ladder in my chosen field. That field happens to be journalism, but it shares many attributes with countless other workplaces. For instance, back when I was one of the youngest people in the room, I was helped by experienced elders who taught me the ropes.

Now, shockingly, I’m one of the elders. And I’ve watched my industry undergo significant change. That’s why I recently went searching for a young mentor — yes, a younger colleague to mentor me.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
