A range of first-in-HKIA brands include Make Up For Ever, Fresh, Innisfree, Sekkisei, Glamglow and Diptyque have been added to the airport stores’ beauty sectors, while branded kiosks such as Montblanc, Casio, Samsonite and LeSportsac will present customers with new experiences including personalisation in the general merchandise section.
DFS’ remodelled shopping areas also unveil unique new concepts in the spirits and wines sector, introducing one of only 15 Johnnie Walker Houses in the world in tandem with The Whiskey House, an experiential destination with certified Sales Associates delivering a luxurious shopping experience.
New additions to the extensive brand list include Bache-Gabrielsen, Janneau and Moutai. Customers can explore more than 250 whiskies across 50 brands and enjoy DFS-exclusive offers including William Grant & Sons’ ‘Rare Cask Reserve’, as well as Araid 18 Year Old, 21 Year Old and 25 Year Old.

The completion of the remodelling provides travellers with more space, visibility and better ease of shopping.
