September 2010 marked the re-opening of the Dior boutique of Mall of the Emirates, in the newly opened ‘Fashion Dome’ section.
American architect Peter Marino’s touch has transformed the boutique into a luxurious contemporary apartment; each department is treated as a salon in a 480 square meter private home. The interior decoration of the boutique is inspired by that of the house’s headquarters on Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Elements reminiscent of the 18th Century, dove-grey carpets, carvings and Louis XVI furniture are harmoniously matched with more contemporary elements.
Upon entering, the first thing that greets the eye is the accessories collection, surrounded by the world of leather goods’ displayed in sleek modern glass displays. All the bags are displayed from the iconic “Lady Dior” to the latest creation of the house the “Miss Dior”. Close by, stands a room dedicated to the Dior Horlogerie universe.
From there, you reach the shoe salon, where you can take the comfort in trying the exquisite collections.
The next room unveils the ready-to-wear and takes you in the heart of the couture house. From all sides of the room you are surrounded by the wonderful world of gowns, the furs, the evening dresses that makes Dior so unique. In addition, there is a special VIP room allocated to greet Dior VIPs in a private and calm atmosphere.
A special entrance leads you to the Dior Homme boutique that is linked to the women’s boutique by a common pathway. The mood of the Dior Homme section is set through the use of tones of midnight black and crisp white. Classically inspired moldings are set against the modern lacquered walls, all to present the latest from Dior Homme collection.
