Iconic Australian fashion brand to open at T2 Domestic Terminal 13 July.

Country Road is the latest iconic Australian fashion brand to join Sydney Airport’s growing collection of fashion boutiques. The new Country Road concept store will open 13 July at T2 domestic terminal as part of the remodelling of the precinct into a premium shopping and lifestyle destination, delivering improved choice, convenience and value for travellers.

 

Country Road Group is already well represented at the airport, with two of its other household name brands – Mimco and Witchery – already at T2.

 

Country Road is all about creating simple yet beautiful designs to reflect an authentically Australian way of life.

 “At Sydney Airport we are committed to constantly enhancing the experience of our passengers. By welcoming brands we know Australians love we can continue to meet and exceed the needs of domestic travellers, whether they are flying for business or pleasure,” General Manager of Retail at Sydney Airport Andrew Gardiner said.

 

Country Road managing director Sophie Holt said Country Road has chosen Sydney Airport as its exclusive airport store.

 

“Country Road is a perfect fit for T2. From the workplace to the weekend, from everyday essentials to aspirational pieces, the store will offer a range of womenswear and women’s accessories, appealing to both the corporate and the leisure traveller,” Ms Holt said.

 

“This is a great opportunity to expose Australia’s most iconic brand to a new audience, as Sydney Airport has over 37 million diverse passengers a year.”

 

Country Road worked closely with designers Meacham Nockles McQualter to develop the store concept in keeping with its relaxed style. Inspired by the modern Scandinavian aesthetic that maintains the distinct sensibility of the Country Road brand through clean lines, the store will feature the use of natural timbers and crisp white accented with graphic black.

           

Country Road has 146 stores across Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, including concession stores in David Jones and Myer.
