Global luxury brand Givenchy has announced the opening of its new boutique in Dubai Mall.
The new Dubai Mall Givenchy store, one of the largest of the group’s outlets 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, said a company spokesman.
“Inside the 331 sq-m 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,” he explained.
“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,” he added.
According to him, the Givenchy 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.
Minimalist black dresses contoured in white keep company with statement pieces such as a glossy turquoise leather jacket and tulip skirt, a split-neck funnel top with cropped glazed burgundy leather trousers, or a teal funnel-neck leather top with ribbed cuffs worn over a glazed, straight-cut skirt, he stated.
“Traditional Japanese motifs filter into prints and embellishments, as seen in a dégradé “Japanese Fire flower” print cascading down a mid-length black dress, or mangas reprised as embellishments on men’s bomber jackets and hoodies,” he explained.
“Additional embellishments include embroidered crystal starbursts, 4G sequins and 3D leopard stacked sequins,” he added.
