Just in time for the holidays, Hermès has set up shop in JFK’s Terminal 4. This is one of the biggest airport terminals in the New York area, and after a four-year expansion project, it has a large concourse with dining outlets (Le Grand Comptoir for craft beer enthusiasts) plus an extended shopping mall with retailers like Hugo Boss, Swarovski, and Kiehl’s.
Condé Nast Traveler reports that the Hermès pop-up was inspired by the iconic French brand’s flagship store in Paris- with an array of fragrances, candles, home goods, and of course the beloved patterned scarves that are recognized around the globe. Annual passenger traffic at JFK’s Terminal 4 was over 17 million in 2014 (the summer season saw a record high of almost 6 million passengers), and the Hermès pop-up is bound to do brisk business for travelers in need of a gift or a luxe pick-me-up. This boutique will be open through November 2015.
