Valentino is celebrating the opening of its new flagship store in Shanghai at IAPM Mall with a catwalk show on November 14 at (2 pm CET and 8 am in New York). The catwak show will be live streamed on http://live.valentino.com/. The new Valentino Flagship store boasts an impressive 2 storey facade window display facing Huahai Zhong Road and is over 790 square meters.
The Shanghai flagship marks an important step in the development of Valentino’s retail worldwide network expansion. Also designed by renowned architect David Chipperfiled Shanghai will be Valentino’s 2nd largest flagship store, after Milan, while still maintaining the character and atmosphere of a palazzo – a personal space, not simply a shop. Combining the old and the new, the store clearly communicates Valentino’s latest directions.
For this special occasion Valentino’s Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, have decided to create a complete collection of Ready to Wear, Haute Couture and new accessories to be presented at an exclusive fashion show in one of Shanghai’s most central locations on the Bund.
On November 15th, a capsule collection from the show of ready to wear and accessories will immediately and exclusively be available for purchase at the new Valentino Shanghai flagship store at IAPM. The Collection Shanghai will be available in April 2014 in all Valentino boutiques worldwide
