Just landed at Malta International Airport: Coach, Longchamp and Orlebar Brown

The temptation to indulge in a spot of last-minute shopping before taking off has become a little harder to resist at Malta International Airport, with the opening of SALTWATER.

The opening of this fashion outlet falls in line with Malta International Airport’s efforts to transform the airport journey into a delightful experience, and complements other improvements to the retail offering, including the recent Duty Free store revamp.

Located at Departures, SALTWATER houses seven brands, ranging from the household names that are Emporio Armani, Diesel, Tommy Hilfiger and Weekend by Max Mara to more up-and-coming designers, such as Orlebar Brown. Adding to the appeal of Orlebar Brown’s attention to detail in creating a line of versatile swimwear for men, is the fact that the British brand is a newcomer to the local market.

SALTWATER has also introduced to the Maltese islands Coach’s and Longchamp’s high-quality leather goods; the former having a seemingly effortless American style and the latter stitched with a distinctive French flair. Perhaps mostly known for its lightweight Le Pliage totes, Longchamp’s offering indeed extends beyond foldable bags, and includes shoes and accessories that exhibit a combination of unparalleled quality and craftsmanship.

Designed by Fernando Correa of Milan’s studio Correa Grandos Architects; an interior design and architecture firm that specialises in high-end retail spaces, restaurants and showrooms, the outlet itself is almost as enticing as the selection of ready-to-wear items, shoes and accessories that grace the shelves.

Difficult to miss and impossible to ignore, SALTWATER is set to become a popular outlet with travellers looking for a gift for a special someone back home and passengers wanting to treat themselves to a little luxury.
