This partnership reinforces Chalhoub Group’s digital acceleration drive and investment in digital platforms, expanding its existing online ecosystem, and bringing new capabilities and opportunities for customer engagement and personalisation.

Sharmila Murat, chief investment officer at Chalhoub Group said: “This partnership is a key milestone in our strategy to expand our digital presence and global reach while staying focused on delivering exceptional experiences for our luxury consumers, and inspiring and influencing a global audience through innovative and engaging digital content.”

Sophie Hill, founder and CEO of Threads Styling, said: “We are excited to partner with Chalhoub Group to further strengthen our proposition within the GCC. We have such a loyal customer base in the region and with Chalhoub Group’s presence in the market we have a unique opportunity to enhance our capabilities and continue Threads Styling’s journey alongside a strategic partner.”

Threads Styling will continue to operate as an independent entity under Sophie Hill’s leadership.
