April 24th, 2017 by retail design blog

Since having regained the global limelight under the creative guidance of Pierpaolo Piccioli – initially with fellow Italian Maria Grazia Chiuri who later moved on to assume the creative reigns at the house of Dior – Valentino has accelerated the expansion of its retail network, and not surprisingly, it’s one of the very few leading luxury brands to have secured a prominent street level location at Ginza Six.

Maximizing its exposure, the Italian brand has put up a sleek grid façade of glass and aluminum that’s matched indoors by a similar restrained settings designed by David Chipperfield Architects. The acclaimed British practice has been responsible for the interior of Valentino’s newest boutiques, and the chosen palette of venetian terrazzo flooring, carrara marble pillars and staircases, and custom-made furnishings and fixtures also manifests here.

At 885 sqm. [9,526 sq.ft.] spread across no less than five floors, the Valentino flagship store ranks among the biggest on the planet, and these spatial dimensions come with benefits for its fanbase as the merchandise is elaborate, including the entire women’s and men’s apparel collections, in addition to accessories, bags, footwear, and fragrances.
