Shopwatch: Brown Thomas, Dublin
March 26, 2015
Quality materials are used with little fuss at Brown Thomas's Dublin flagship With the Irish economy showing signs of recovery, now is the time for retailers to capitalise by investing in their stores. Luxury department store Brown Thomas is one step ahead, enjoying the benefits of early investment in its 110,000 sq ft Dublin flagship, which it has occupied on Grafton Street since 1848. The (EURO)9m (£6.6m) revamp of the 24,000 sq ft ground floor has increased the space devoted to accessories by 50% to 15,500 sq ft, showcasing brands such as Givenchy, Tom Ford, Céline and Prada. Its beauty collection was expanded into the remaining 8,500 sq ft. The extra space was achieved by moving items including a Ladurée macaroon stand and work was completed in November 2014. "It's been very successful. I'm delighted with the results and customer feedback," says managing director Stephen Sealy. "But at the end of the day it is the sales that pay the bills and justify the investment." And they are doing just that, driving beauty into double-digit growth and "very strong growth" in accessories.

Evolution of an already good car
March 26, 2015
REVOLUTION and evolution. Two words you'll hear often in the motoring game to emphasise whether a new model's a complete knock-your-socks-off display of progression, or just a mild transfiguration of something we already know. Hyundai's second-generation i20 hatch, if we're talking about style, is a revolution. Park this car next to the previous version and it's clear designers have gone all out to ditch the now six-year-old jelly-mould look. Instead, the new i20 adopts a more European flavour with sharp German creases, sculpted Italian lights, and a floating roof reminiscent of many French cars. It's still not exactly stand out in a crowd stuff, but this new "Fluidic Sculpture 2.0" design language is a signal that Hyundai's moving upmarket... in appearance terms anyway.

CAN DATA SAVE THE MALL?
March 23, 2015
IN THE NEW Fashion District at Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, N.J., stand a half dozen seven-foot-tall touchscreens. The larger-than-life displays have games, movie trailers, retailer catalogs, interactive directories and other applications. The digital storefronts are among the latest efforts from Westfield Labs, an innovative digital arm of the high-end mall operator, aimed at drawing more traffic to malls and keeping them there. The misfortune of the mall has been well documented-according to a Green Street Advisors report, since 2010, more than two dozen enclosed shopping malls have been closed and another 60 are ready to follow. But top-quality malls, like many of those operated by Simon and General Growth Properties, are doing well-both reported higher sales in 2014-and are hoping to continue that trajectory with some high-tech help.
