Givenchy Beauty will open its first South Korean store this month.
The cosmetics and skin-care line of the French luxury fashion house Givenchy has taken space in the Hyundai Department Store in the trendy southern Seoul district of Apgujeong.
The first store will open on July 31 and a second, at another Hyundai Department store in Sinchon, northern Seoul, will open next month.
With the huge growth of the Korean beauty industry over recent years, Givenchy Beauty believes its broad range of makeup, skincare and perfume products will appeal to local women comfortable spending on premium solutions.
Once the Givenchy Beauty stores are open, Hyundai Department Store will become the first Korean retailer to host stores from five global premium beauty brands, the others being Dior, YSL, Chanel and Tom Ford.
