Valentino opens in Shanghai second largest store globally

Italian luxury house of Valentino has celebrated the opening of its new flagship store in Shanghai with a capsule collection – Collection Shanghai 2013. Second in size only to the Milan flagship, the Shanghai store opened November 14 at IAPM Mall in Huai Hai Zhong Road. The two-story flagship, designed by architect David Chipperfield, brings the spirit of the Venetian palazzo to a more intimate scale.

Collection Shanghai 2013 is available exclusively at the new store. It will arrive at the New York, Rome, Milan, and Paris flagships in April 2014. But Valentino has given consumers the opportunity to see the collection and participate in the Shanghai flagship through a live-streaming fashion show.
