Valentino Store in New York by David Chipperfield
Luxury fashion house Valentino has recently opened its largest ever retail space. Located at 693 Fifth Avenue in New York City, the new 20,000 square foot flagship store was designed by British architect David Chipperfield, who has worked on other projects for the Roman fashion brand.
The store houses Valentino’s womenswear, menswear and accessories lines across three floors where grey marble coexists with black steel, aluminium and brass. Two other Valentino stores (one in Aspen, Colorado, and the other in Miami’s Design Distric) are scheduled to open this year in the USA, a market that accounts for approximately 25% of the label’s global sales.
