Rejoice, fellow retail junkies, for Valentino has unveiled a new boutique at the prestigious Marina Bay Sands. The launch marks a developmental milestone in the Italian luxury label's international expansion and sees our sunny island blessed with a second store.
In collaboration with renowned British architect, David Chipperfield, the sprawling 342 square-metres space framed by a 20 metre shop front window was conceptualised by creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. Breaking away from a traditional showroom store structure, the new boutique affects a Palazzo-esque ambience of discreet opulence and echoes the brand's affinity for grace and elegance.
Customers will delight in the personalised atmosphere, within which women's ready-to-wear, accessories and fragrances are all stocked. If retail therapy is your favourite pastime, you'd better get yourself down there stat.
Valentino is located at #B1-16/17, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
