New concept Boss store makes debut at Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal 1

By Charlotte Turner |

On 14 April, Frankfurt Airport Retail (FAR), a joint venture between Gebr. Heinemann and airport operator Fraport, celebrated the opening of the a new Boss shop in Terminal 1 at Frankfurt Airport; the first following the brand’s relaunch.

 

The 140sq m store located in Pier A Schengen is the world’s first travel retail mono-brand boutique featuring the new concept and branding after the relaunch of the brand in 2021.

 

The latest addition represents the fourth store footprint from the brand at Frankfurt Airport and the 13th in Gebr. Heinemann’s global network.

 

‘STRONG DIGITAL IMPULSES’

Located at the centre of the terminal, immediately after the main duty free store, the new boutique carries apparel and accessories for men and women.

“The opening of the Boss monobrand boutique is a highlight in our busy Terminal 1. We are particularly proud that the new look is celebrating its premiere in global travel retail here in Frankfurt,” said Dirk Mörchen, Managing Director of FAR.

 

Georg Fuhrmann, also Managing Director of FAR, adds: “The joint implementation of the new concept in travel retail is proof of the fruitful cooperation between Gebr. Heinemann, FAR and Hugo Boss. Fraport has also given us excellent support, as always.”

“We are delighted to welcome another Boss brand store to our airport, expanding the range of products for our customers,” explains Jan-Dieter Schaap, Head of Retail at Fraport AG. “The innovative and new concept addresses the customer needs in the A Schengen passenger area.”

 

The core of the new store concept is a pronounced focus on the lifestyle segment and strong digital impulses. A special highlight is the digitalised façade on which changing campaign videos in XXL format encourage travellers to visit the boutique.

 

PERSONALISATION INSTORE

The store presents itself in an urban aesthetic, with a clear look and many wooden elements. Modern design elements give the brand plenty of space to present the collections.

For the opening of the new mono-brand boutique, customers could have their newly purchased pullovers personalised in the store.

 

“The relaunch of the Boss brand is also reflected in the assortment, such as the Boss X NBA collection with sweats and sneakers in the style of the American basketball league,” said Jan Richter, Director Purchasing Fashion, Accessories & Watches, Jewellery at Gebr. Heinemann.

 

“The new design concept and the strong digital elements enable us to curate and stage the assortment and individual product groups in an even more targeted way. This offers customers a much better orientation and, above all, provides passengers with little time an even more enjoyable shopping experience.”

The look and feel for the Hugo and Boss brands from Hugo Boss has been visibly rejuvenated and ‘dynamised’ since the relaunch, according to the brand.

 

The new #BeYourOwnBoss campaign supports the change with well-known names like Kendall Jenner and other influencers from the world of fashion, music and sports.

 

“The brands’ traditional logos have also been revamped for the first time in 50 years, setting sail for greater relevance and the goal of generating higher revenues from the premium brand,” added Heinemann.

 

In the course of this year, the other Boss presences at Frankfurt Airport will also be equipped with the new logo.
