12.09.2014Valentino New York opened

The Valentino Flagship Store on New York’s Fifth Avenue has opened to the public.

The design follows the new store concept developed together with Valentino’s Creative Directors in 2012, and already applied to various boutiques around the world.

Located in the former Takashimaya Department store designed by John Burgee and Philip Johnson, the store is fronted by an eight storey façade composed of black steel and aluminium. The monumental atrium, lined in terrazzo, features a prominent monolithic stair.
