Xupes Launches Global Expansion Plans with Amsterdam Store Opening

On the 11th of July 2019, we announced our next step in globally expanding the business by opening our first showroom outside of the UK, in the centre of Amsterdam.

Our new showroom is located on the doorstep of the Vondelpark in Amsterdam’s up-market “oud-zuid” district and is our first office in mainland Europe. Built in a traditional Dutch style, ‘the Red Castle’ is 1000 sq ft. in size and acts as both a by-appointment retail space and an office for the expanding team. The showroom is based on ‘the Wheat Barn’, our UK based HQ, to recreate a warm and inviting environment.

“Our aim is to be Europe’s leading luxury pre-owned destination within the next years”, says Director Joseph. “We have a genuine love for the products we sell and understand the important roles they can play in people's lives, whether that be marking a career milestone, a gift for a loved one, or becoming an heirloom to pass down the family. We want to help anyone who aspires to own one of these beautiful pieces of design and offer an enjoyable and trustworthy way of purchasing it, whether that be in one of our showrooms or via our website.”

The store officially launched on the 15th of July 2019 following a private launch party for press on the 11th.

The event took place at ‘the Red Castle’ where over one hundred guests enjoyed a preview of the new showroom where we displayed a selection of our favourite pre-loved handbags, watches and jewellery. The display replicated our ‘Pieces of Paradise’ S/S19 campaign with a botanical theme throughout. Speeches were given by Director and Co-founder Joe alongside our European Managing Director Arnon Kadouch. One of our first clients from Amsterdam also gave a talk on his experience consigning with us. Megan Young, our head of watchmaking also attended the event and gave a demonstration in watch servicing, timekeeping and water testing live. 

A selection of images from the event can be previewed below.
