Luxury retailer Brahmin will soon open its first North Carolina boutique in SouthPark mall.

The American brand said in a statement recently it will open the week of Oct. 19 in a 2,033-square-foot space next to Louis Vuitton. Brahmin, which manufactures products out of its headquarters in Massachusetts, specializes in luxury handbags and accessories.

The retailer will host a grand opening event 6-8:30 p.m. Oct. 22 featuring fashion and lifestyle bloggers as well as the chance for a customer to win a Brahmin shopping spree and first look at the brand’s new collections.

The new Charlotte store will feature a living room and galley for complimentary services including beverages and gift-wrapping. The store will also feature access to Brahmin’s new category extensions including home décor, jewelry and a more robust men’s assortment.

Exclusive to the Charlotte store will be Brahmin’s Boutique handbag collection.
