New Bond Street ‘best in world’

The head of Piaget, one of the world's leaders in jewellery yesterday said New Bond Street the world’s premier shopping street for jewellery. Speaking as he opened a new flagship store in the street, Philippe Léopold-Metzger said: “No other street in the world matches it for the watches and jewellery industries — not even New York's Fifth Avenue.” Piaget fought off four other retailers for the site, which opened on Friday. Cartier, Chanel and Louis Vuitton, are also on the street. Property agent Cushman & Wakefield said Piaget, owned by Swiss luxury giant Richemont, had paid the biggest rent ever on the street, where prices have risen by 19.4 per cent in the last 12 months.
