IWC Schaffhausen celebrated the grand opening of its boutique in the luxury shopping mall, JK Iguatemi in São Paulo.
The event offered a night full of entertainment, with special guest and Friend of the Brand, soccer superstar Luís Figo, as well as actor Murilo Benicio, in attendance. Throughout the night, fans of good music were also treated to the sounds of renowned Dj Marina Diniz.
Many would say that São Paulo is the essence of modernity and seemingly the perfect place to unveil the very first IWC boutique in all of South America. The boutique offers guests a journey into the charming worlds that surround IWC’s watch families, together with the allure of watchmaking and haute horlogerie. The warm and exquisite ambience was achieved through meticulous designs with an emphasis on details including dark wood, polished metals, chrome accents, and leather, all effortlessly reflecting the brand’s philosophy and craftsmanship. With the promise of exceptional service to add to its already fascinating atmosphere, IWC’s new boutique offers a supreme shopping experience to all of its customers.
