Anuj Sawney Brand bargain
Affordable luxury is what brand Swiss Military stands for. Established in 1984 in Switzerland, the brand has made its presence felt by doing exceptionally well in flight and online market. It is all set to enter multi-brand outlets in a big manner in February. Swiss Military has diverse products, right from cosmetics, footwear, leather goods to multi-utility items.

The market being so price sensitive, we had to walk the extra mile on that too."
