By Doug Newhouse |


The King Power Group (Hong Kong) is to open a new concept Kipling/Eastpak duo store in Changi Airport T1 this April.

Designed by ‘award-winning design agency’ UXUS, the new store will be located in Terminal 1’s Departure/Transit Lounge West, which KPG now describes as Changi’s ‘most modern and efficient’ after four years of improvement work.

Sunil Tuli, Managing Director, King Power (Duty Free and Travel Retail) commented: “It’s very exciting working with Kipling and Eastpak. We opened a Kipling store in Terminal 2 last month and are very happy with the results and are really looking forward to this new opening. The duo store is a new concept and it will be interesting to have this at this very important location.”

Ralph Bou Nader, Head of Travel Retail at VF which owns Kipling, said: “We are really excited to be a part of this innovative retail project. We feel this is an important opportunity for the two brands to adopt an even more prominent position in the world of travel. We are sure that EASTPAK & KIPLING’s wide range of smart, stylish and highly functional travel items will inspire thousands of passing passengers at the revamped T1 terminal.”
