Bobbi Brown is thinking globally — with a plan that will nearly triple her number of international freestanding stores within the next three years.
“I am looking at the current economy as a reset button, and as a time to reevaluate what, where, when and how,” said Brown, whose newest freestanding store, her 13th, is slated to open in Paris next month. “And it’s about doing the right thing. I am passionate about education, and I also want my stores to be places that make people feel good. That’s the vision: creating a comfortable, eclectic space — sort of a combination of old-fashioned and modern — where people can come and learn and hang out. And having stores is such a great way to test the waters. When you’re in department stores, you have certain rules you have to live by.”
