Celebrating global and local fashion

Printemps Doha is described as a “next-generation” department store that offers an entirely new customer experience, featuring “ultra-personalised” products thanks to cutting-edge technology. An approach that echoes the department store’s virtual fashion brand, recently launched on Web 3 and called Digital Fashion by Printemps

Printemps Doha has set up a talent incubator programme in partnership with M7 called The Collective, offering a three-month mentorship to local designers, who will then be able to showcase their creations within the complex.

The Doha Oasis complex also includes a 5-star hotel, an amusement park and a cinema, as well as Printemps’s 2,600 square-meter spa, the largest in the region, and 14 restaurants.

International expansion strategy

In ​May 2019, the Printemps Group announced the opening of Printemps Doha, its first department store outside France since the closure, two years earlier, of its last foreign branch, located in Tokyo, Japan.

Printemps Doha was originally scheduled to open in September 2022, but was eventually inaugurated in late November, coinciding with the Football World Cup

The opening is part of the international expansion strategy of the Printemps group, which was acquired in 2013 by a Qatari-owned investment fund.

In 2024, the department store group will head for New York

The group, headed by Jean-Marc Bellaiche, is planning to open between five and 10 new stores, all of them outside France, by 2030. ​Earlier this year, Printemps unveiled a new visual identity and embarked on an extensive rebranding
