In the heart of Southampton, West Quay is home to one of the South Coast’s most popular shopping destinations. The Goldsmiths showroom has undergone an exciting refurbishment which now boasts a fresh interior, as well as a line-up of luxury timepieces and fine-jewellery brands; housing the latest collections from luxury Swiss watches houses OMEGA, Breitling and Panerai and new shop in shop layouts from Hublot, TUDOR and Longines which boasts a Watches of Switzerland Group exclusive; the HyrdroConquest gift set. The showroom also features luxury jewellery brands FOPE, Jenny Packham, Mappin & Webb and for the first time, Messika jewellery. Each piece of Messika ladies' jewellery has been exceptionally crafted to capture the timeless beauty of diamonds, while offering a decidedly contemporary feel which sits perfectly in the modern open plan showroom.
The calming, yet dynamic space was designed in partnership with the award-winning UK-based design collective Quadrant Design. Light uncluttered, open spaces in a monochrome palette of luxurious materials such as white-washed oak timber, white terrazzo, and blackened steel, have been combined with visual architectural forms that include repeating vertical lines and soft curves inspired by the Goldsmiths logo, to perfectly combine contemporary luxury design with a relaxed atmosphere. The refurbished space has provided a light, open plan showroom, with a new hospitality area and seating where clients have the perfect environment to relax and enjoy browsing the through the collections.
"This is a significant milestone for Goldsmiths, luxury today has become far more relaxed, inclusive, and experiential, so while we are elevating the Goldsmiths brand position, our goal is to make for everyone feel valued and at home when visiting our showrooms. We hope for new and existing clients visiting the new West Quay, Southampton showroom will have a memorable luxury experience long after they have made their purchase. Having recently opened a TAG Heuer boutique in the shopping centre we hope the investment demonstrates our on-going commitment to the shopping centre and our local clients"
