Unifree and joint-venture partner Gebr. Heinemann have opened two new Hugo Boss stores at Istanbul Airport.
The outlets cover around 430sq m and are located in The Bosphorous shopping area. Both shops feature the latest Boss Menswear collections including shoes and accessories. Unifree, which is responsible for 53,000sq m of commercial space at the airport, said the stores used warm and residential materials to create and inviting yet refined ambiance.
