MHB’s Managing Editor Tim Chew and member Nicole Fu headed over to Suria KLCC on 1 December 2016 for the official launch of the new Dior boutique which is the House’s second in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The new boutique, which has a prime location in Kuala Lumpur’s iconic Suria KLCC mall, has been designed to reflect the legendary elegance and modernity of the world of Dior.
The boutique takes inspirations from the original Paris flagship on Avenue Montaigne, and provides a sleek and open environment. The store houses women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes, a special area for handbags, and the quintessential dedicated VIP area and fitting room. The decor features lustrous, monochromatic details, dramatic accents of chrome and glass and sumptuous furnishings, reflecting the timeless elegance of Dior within a modern and extremely sophisticated setting.
A number of specially-chosen art pieces from prominent international artists can be viewed in Dior KLCC – as Christian Dior was a patron of the arts. The ready-to-wear area, with its cabochon floor, is the perfect home for the hurricane mirror by Fredrikson Stallard as well as a cityscape credenza by the eminent American artist Paul Evans and a stool by Thierry Lemaire. The artist Oyoram created a video installation specifically for the new location.
Lots of celebrities and socialites attended the glitzy launch!
