Department stores, fashion brands and luxury marques are shuttering stores all over the world, but Dolce & Gabbana has instead just revamped and opened its flagship on Canton Road in Hong Kong.


Inside Dolce & Gabbana's new Hong Kong Canton Road boutique - Dolce & Gabbana


 
The opening is a clear vote of confidence in its Chinese fans by Dolce & Gabbana, seeing as it happens while Hong Kong maintains draconian measures  – like electronic tagging of all new arrivals. And, as of Wednesday, the decision to ban all non-residents from the territory by Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam.
 
Hong Kong is suddenly newly anxious about a new wave of coronavirus, concerned that previous easing restrictions in March were too early. Yet the Milan-based designers have radically enlarged and revamped their existing flagship on Canton Road, a key shopping artery in the port city of 7.5 million people.

The 363-square-meter boutique incorporates lots of local references – like the colorful mosaic of stone and glass depicting the bauhinia flower, symbol of the city of Hong Kong. Created according to Italian artisanal traditions, and located at the boutique entrance, it’s where Chinese culture meets Bel Paese craftsmanship. In line with the “Napoleon and Josephine” renovation of its Paris store, unveiled in January, the Hong Kong boutique mixes up Italian flair and panache with Chinese exoticism.

Its facade features an imposing 18-meter high screen made of overlapping rectangular frames of Italian white vein silver marble, visually delimited by white light beams. Inside, Stefano and Domenico play on Chinese symbolism with specially-tailored ideas – like the Silk Road scarves of dragons jousting dramatically beneath Chinese lanterns.
 
The store is spread over two floors, the first one being dedicated to the female universe, while the second, underground, is for male style. A blend of polished grey Carnico marble floors and walls; vertical bars of polished smoked redgum wood; sparkling mirrored ceilings with gold velvet and polished brass, the store the result is the meeting of opulence and Sicilian baroque that is forever the leitmotif of Dolce & Gabbana. Featuring ready-to-wear, accessories and fine jewelry for men and women, this new remodeling project was completed in collaboration with Eric Carlson from Carbondale Studio – who also handled the duo’s Paris boutique.
