PALO ALTO — Stanford Shopping Center, one of the top shopping malls in Silicon Valley, is adding two new high-end stores from France with the arrivals of high-fashion retailer Hermès and the luxury house Cartier.
Hermès, a French high fashion and luxury goods manufacturer, will open a 6,000-square-foot store in the heart of the newly transformed center, near Neiman Marcus. The store is slated to open in late 2017 or early 2018.
The Hermès Palo Alto boutique will sell men’s, women’s, home and equestrian collections to local Stanford residents, Silicon Valley and the Stanford University community. This store will be the first new U.S. market location for Hermès in over five years.
The French luxury jewelry designer and watchmaker Cartier will open this fall adjacent to Hermès. The new Palo Alto boutique was designed in-house to reflect the look and feel of Architect Bruno Moinard.
In addition to Hermès and Cartier, other retailers that have opened at Stanford Shopping Center during the summer of 2016 include British fashion house AllSaints, the first U.S. location for women’s Italian fashion brand Luisa Spagnoli, outdoor lifestyle brand The North Face, British perfume house Penhaligon’s, Pink Posy Bake Shop, Spanish jewelry brand UNOde50, men’s dress and casual shoe retailer Allen Edmonds, sustainable fashion brand Amour Vert, Jenni Kayne’s refined wardrobe and home essentials inspired by modern California living, as well as indoor cycling reimagined for home by Peloton.
Alex and Ani and Anthropologie will also open their doors to Stanford Shopping Center guests later this fall.
“With every new retailer that opens and every announcement that is made, we are solidifying our commitment to the center, the Palo Alto community and our dedicated shoppers,” said Julie Kelly, director of marketing and business development at Stanford Shopping Center. “We love adding amazing new options to our retail mix, especially stores that have chosen our center as their new home in Northern California.”
Stanford Shopping Center is owned by the Simon Property Group and has over 140 stores and restaurants. The mall has undergone renovations for the past two years.
