Canali opens boutique in Shanghai
June 5, 2013: Luxury menswear brand Canali expands its presence in China with the opening of its fourth boutique in Shanghai.
The 200 sq m store is located in the luxury Westgate Mall. The retail space presents a new architectural concept which reflects the brand’s values and tradition and draws on its renewed visual identity. The four display windows, two on the prestigious Nanjing Road West and two more inside the Mall, feature a special three-dimensional version of the exclusive Canali texture. Two small diamonds made from matte black metal, which intersect into infinity like the infinite “stitches” needed to transform a Canali suit into reality, will transfix passers-by at night with some stunning lighting effects.
The interior of the boutique skillfully combines fine materials, including ‘silk georgette’ stone, luxurious leathers and smart crystal glass in shades of grey. The ceiling is particularly striking, featuring grey walnut parallelepiped structures that emit light and seem to float in mid air.
Canali entered China in 2002 and now has more than 60 stores there.
