Adding a new dimension to luxury retail in Qatar, Galeries Lafayette Doha welcomed the French luxury brand, Joseph Duclos. The house made its grand debut in Qatar and the Middle East on October 13, 2022 at an exclusive event at Galeries Lafayette Doha’s La Suite.
The arrival of Joseph Duclos at Galeries Lafayette is the French Department Store’s homage to French craftsmanship and its luxury excellence. Joseph Duclos infuses new meaning into luxury that is authentic and intimate by taking a contemporary look at the Age of Enlightenment, a golden period of French artistry and craftsmanship.
At the heart of the House is the art of fine leather, a material that is as noble as it is exacting. Joseph Duclos showcases its savoir-faire through a series of curated collections of fine leather goods, jewellery and fragrances are produced in France using traditional artisanal techniques, resulting in objects of pure luxury, made to last.
The Joseph Duclos collection will immerse clients in the multi-sensorial universe of luxury and fashion with the fine craft of leather at its heart.
Welcoming the brand, General Manager of Galeries Lafayette Doha Mr. Kevin Gerard Pender said: “Like Galeries Lafayette, Joseph Duclos also represents the authentic French luxury and style and we are proud to represent them in Qatar. The brand exquisitely uses materials, knowledge and craft skills in France to create exclusive, artisanal products with an authentic back story. I am sure that the Galeries Lafayette Doha clientele will appreciate and love the heritage brand and their craftsmanship”.
Established in 2021, Maison Joseph Duclos revives Enlightenment era savoir-faire and pays homage to visionary entrepreneur Joseph Duclos who founded the Royal Manufacture in 1754 in Lectoure, France. Joseph Duclos draws inspiration from its roots at the heart of the Occitan region of France, and the Age of Enlightenment. Drawing inspiration from the unequalled savoir-faire of the epoch, the House crafts contemporary objects of authentic and intimate luxury.
