House of Givenchy has just opened its new store in Dubai Mall. The flagship store, one of the largest Givenchy stores worldwide, is located in the fashion avenue. A luxury arm of the existing mall, located in the heart of the city, it is home to the world’s most prominent luxury brands.
With its sleek black granite in pleated shapes over the full facade height and gold lettering, the Givenchy boutique makes a striking statement. Inside the 331 square-meter space, and 4-meter-high ceilings the store houses Clare Waight Keller’s women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections displayed in line with the Brand’s DNA. The store also boasts a VIP room with dedicated fitting rooms made of mirror and pink velvet walls.
Like the Givenchy runway, the retail space keeps a modern focus with architectural rigor and a black ground even as it brings out certain details of the House’s heritage. For example, herringbone oak flooring with natural finish has been installed in the spirit of traditional Parisian parquet.
The store opens with the Spring 19 Pre-Collection RTW inspired by director Clare Waight Keller’s British roots by mingling traditional men’s tailoring and fabrics with playful cues such as Eighties-inflected sharp shoulders and asymmetrical lines and grounding it all with day-to-night practicality.
