Valentino recently opened its Canton Road Flagship Store in October 2014.
Situated at Harbour City, Canton Road, the store is the House's largest store in Hong Kong.
To mark this occasion, a grand opening cocktail reception was hosted. An elite crowd of celebrities and socialites in town were invited to attend the cocktail reception.
Celebrities including Siwon Choi, member of the South Korean boy group "Super Junior" and Tiffany Hwang, member of "Girls' Generation", Bingbing Fan, Carina Lau, Bosco Wong, Pakho Chau, as well as Wyman Wong and Hilary Tsui were specially invited to attend the cocktail reception.
Socialites in town including Daisy Ho, Anina Ho, Eric Ho, Andy Wong etc, also joined the opening cocktail.
The 900 square meter flagship store marks an important step in the development of Valentino's worldwide retail network expansion, and it continues the innovative store concept developed by Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaol o Piccioli, together with David Chipperfield Architects.
The store concept combines old and new in order to generate a Palazzo atmosphere, steering away from the pure showroom and promoting a new architectural format in place of a more traditional retail boutique structure.
The architecture is designed to complement the pieces on display, making use of a range of discreetly opulent materials - grey Venetian terrazzo with carrara chippings, timber, marble, leather, carpet and carbon fiber - to focus attention on the collections and also evoke a sense of intimacy.
