Where are all the Mumbaikers?
February 1, 2024: Valentino, the esteemed luxury maison, now extends an opportunity for Mumbaikers to enhance their closet, with the inauguration of their latest boutique at Jio World Centre, BKC.
Sprawling over 215 square meters, the design narrative of the store places the client journey at its core, drawing inspiration from Italian hospitality. It is indeed a significant stride in Valentino's global retail network expansion.
At Valentino’s new home, human connections take center stage, paying homage to Valentino's iconic codes and rich Italian heritage. The interior design harmoniously aligns with the brand’s artisanal approach. The floors boast a harmonious combination of Botticino and Sahara Noir marbles, forming iconic geometric motifs, while wood elements contribute to an ambiance of warmth, elegance, and discreet luxury.
The boutique, adorned with an eclectic material palette, draws inspiration from Roman architecture, offering an intimate shopping experience in a comfortable environment enriched with obligatory Roman touches like marbles, onyx, and checkered patterns.
A testament to meticulous craftsmanship, Maison Valentino collaborated with specialist artisans. Massimiliano Pipolo crafted handmade ceramic door handles, blending organic shapes with functionality, and Fabio Cinti created brass geometric compositions, merging contemporary design with ancient craftsmanship.
The Valentino boutique at Jio World Center will house women's and men's ready-to-wear collections, along with Valentino Garavani accessories. This much revered luxury brand welcomes the public, inviting Mumbaikers to shop while indulging in a unique blend of modern elegance and timeless Italian style.
