HOUSTON, TX – July 15, 2019 – Simon, a global leader in the ownership of premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations, has announced three new retailers slated to open at The Galleria this year – Panerai, Jo Malone London and Hope & Henry. The FOMO Factory has also joined the Galleria line up this summer offering a uniquely immersive experience exclusively in Houston.
Italian luxury watchmaker, Panerai, will open its first Houston boutique this fall. Since its creation in 1938 for the Italian Navy, Panerai watches have become a legend by collectors and enthusiasts as a result of its unique identity and its rarity. Distinguished by four fundamental aesthetics of the watch's design - simplicity, purity, elegance and functionality - Panerai timepieces continue in the spirit which unites Italian design and the art of Swiss watchmaking.

This summer, customers will be able to escape to a wonderland at The FOMO Factory complete with a giant sand castle, ball-ﬁlled swimming pool, and candy-covered swings. The immersive exhibit ﬁlled with fantastical sets from iconic childhood moments is the brainchild of native Texan Rachel Youens, who was inspired by her life-changing time spent at a summer camp for grown ups where she learned about the power of play. After years spent in the corporate world with companies including Forever 21 and EA Games, she decided to cultivate an all-ages space where adults could feel like kids again.
