Versace Hong Kong has opened a flagship store in the Shanghai Commercial Bank Tower in Central.
Covering about 743 sqm, it features men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and accessories. It joins standalone stores for the Italian fashion house at Gateway Arcade, MixC Mall, Pacific Place and Sogo Causeway Bay.
The flagship incorporates traditional Italian architectural values with modern touches. Architectural elements include Fior di Bosco marble flooring and brass features, while the facade features backlit onyx.
“For me, the boutique suggests an uninterrupted dialogue between our past and our future, between Versace and our clients,” says Versace Group VP and chief designer Donatella Versace.
To celebrate, Versace has designed a limited-edition mini Palazzo Empire handbag especially for the store. It is embellished with silver Swarovski crystals and includes a detachable leather shoulder strap and a palladium Medusa head, the symbol of Versace. There is also a metallic tag inscribed “The Palazzo Empire celebrating Hong Kong”.
Also at the boutique is a limited number of medium and large Palazzo Empire handbags in exotic skins in various colours. These handbags include a removable interior metallic tag reading “Versace for Shanghai Commercial Bank Tower, Hong Kong”.
