The Ultimate European Shopping Destination
The Bicester Collection (thebicestercollection.com) brings together more than 1,300 fashion and lifestyle boutiques from the world’s most celebrated brands in 11 distinctive shopping destinations conveniently located near major European and Asian cities like London, Paris, Milan, Barcelona, Brussels, Madrid, Munich, and Shanghai. (In the United States, Belmont Park Village, New York, will open in 2024.) Find heritage brands, such as Prada, Dior, Loro Piana, and Louboutin, along with local labels like Burberry in England and J.M. Weston hand-finished shoes in France. Discover exciting new designers—all offering savings of up to 60 percent (and sometimes more) on the recommended retail price. Each village has its own curation of local brands and features a variety of services that include beauty treatments, dining experiences, and hospitality made to measure.
The Bicester Collection’s unique, open-air destinations are transformed into a twinkling wonderland filled with shimmering style, seasonal gifts, and the very best starry-sky shopping. Private shopping suites and personal concierges are available to everyone and can do everything from handpicking holiday gifts for the entire family to editing your perfect ski-holiday wardrobe. In addition, the network of personal concierges offers hands-free shopping—collecting all your purchases from the stores and delivering them beautifully wrapped to your chosen location at a designated time. Late-night, pre-holiday shopping events include mulled wine, cocktails, a Veuve Clicquot Champagne bar and additional savings at selected boutiques.
The VIP Experience
Apartment-style shopping suites are private sanctuaries—unique spaces where The Bicester Collection’s private clients can relax after a busy day of shopping, meet a friend for a glass of Champagne, and enjoy a highly personalized level of service. Each apartment features sink-into couches and chairs, original artwork, and distinctive design details like vintage Lalique decorative arts in France’s La Vallée Village and gold-leaf, hand-painted de Gournay wall coverings in Munich’s Ingolstadt Village. Become a private client by invitation, by recommendation from one of the businesses that partners with the collection, or via The Bicester Collection’s membership program.
Food & Drink
The Bicester Collection partners with local chefs and purveyors to provide memorable gastronomic experiences. Indulge in dreamy Parisian delicacies, from Ladurée to Pierre Hermé, at La Vallée Village. Savor Spanish flavors on the terrace of La Roca Village’s Atmósferas Mordisco, sister restaurant of the award-winning Mordisco Barcelona. Taste the local Parmigiano Reggiano, cured meats from Piacenza, and aged balsamic vinegar from Modena at family-owned Parma Menu in Fidenza Village near Milan. Experience a very British afternoon tea at Soho House’s Farmshop restaurant in Bicester Village, just 45 minutes from London by train, which stops just opposite the entrance to the village.
Arts & Entertainment
Special entertainment programming includes F.A.M.E.—a festival of food, art, mode, and entertainment at La Vallée Village near Paris. La Roca Village near Barcelona has a special collaboration with TV Boy. Fidenza Village near Milan hosts StreetArt Festival. The villages also serve as a platform for exciting young talent including the artwork of Princess Delphine of Belgium at Maasmechelen Village near Brussels and the uber-contemporary UVNT Art Fair at Las Rozas Village near Madrid.
