Balenciaga opened its brand-new boutique with a showcase of couture creations 

Mall of the Emirates has welcomed a new addition to its luxurious Fashion Dome. Balenciaga opened an expansive boutique in the Dubai shopping destination, offering womenswear, menswear and accessories in what has been named the largest Balenciaga store in the Middle East.

The 500-square-metre boutique maintains the House’s raw aesthetic with a grey, washed-concrete palette adorning the interiors. Shelving lines the walls (though only dotted with minimal amounts of pieces) and clothing hangs from the ceilings, while velvet curtains, metal display cases and leather couches punctuate the space.

To celebrate the opening, Balenciaga held a couture presentation showcasing pieces from the House’s 50th, 51st and 52nd couture collections, as well as a selection of items from the couture store in Paris. The VIP-only event also saw the regional debut of signature innovations, from the pave Rodeo Bag and extra-large candle to the Balenciaga x Bang & Olufsen Speaker Bag.
