LONDON — While Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 may have experienced some much-publicized teething problems during its launch last March, the terminal’s operator, the British Airports Authority, hopes the 450,000 passengers who pass through its 200,000 square feet of retail space every week will shrug off the economic downturn, lured by the airport’s raft of luxury boutiques offering exclusive product ranges, new store designs and price incentives.
Prada, Gucci, Bulgari, Dior, Coach and Harrods all have expansive spaces in the $6.7 billion terminal, ranging in size from Dior’s 800-square-foot accessories store, done out with delicate white wood and glass cabinets, to Prada’s sprawling 2,600-square-foot, spotlit space, which carries both clothing and accessories.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
