Update on 13 April: The Dolce&Gabbana Beauty flagship store has finally opened its doors and we’ve got gorgeous images to share!
Dolce&Gabbana is a fashion label that’s probably best known for its iconic patterns and prints that catch your attention right away.
Last month, the luxury brand announced that it is bringing its bold style to our faces in Singapore by setting up its first-ever flagship store at ION Orchard sometime in April.
Well, the time has finally come for the Dolce&Gabbana Beauty flagship store to open its doors and we’re sharing all the pictures right here for you to have a first look!
For the uninformed, the new retail outlet is directly inspired by Gabbana’s apartment and boasts elements that the brand designed directly or with Italian artisans in keeping with the brand’s ‘La Casa’ DNA, so it’s only natural that the store is equal parts unique, bold, and maximalist.
Other aesthetic details you can also look forward to when visiting the store (while observing safety measures, of course) includes exquisite fabrics and patterns that are specifically designed by Gabbana himself and used as decorative elements in the Dolce&Gabbana’s fashion boutiques.
According to the official press release, cake displays are used for lipsticks and foundations “because like desserts, Dolce&Gabbana beauty products are created to bring joy.” Imported marble and walnut wood are also used throughout the space to amp up the opulence factor.
At the luxurious fragrance corner, you’ll even spot a faux fireplace to round out the regal ‘La Casa’ concept!
Previously, we were told by the brand’s representatives that there will be a “life-ready” range of must-have products for eyes, lips, and face. We were also promised comfortable and sumptuous textures, easy and intuitive application styles, exclusive innovative formulas, and vibrant colours.
Well, we can now confirm that all the chatter is true and that the flagship store carries the Make Up line, which was unveiled for the first time into the market and exclusively sold into the boutique. Each product is adorned with an ornamental motif that encapsulates what Dolce&Gabbana stands for and is inspired by the brand’s Italian heritage.
The latest makeup offering that you can catch at the new boutique is the Dolce&Gabbana Beauty Shinissimo (S$59), a lightweight high-gloss liquid lipstick with 14 pigmented shades to pick from, all of them enriched with a blend of nourishing olive oil, fig extract, and hyaluronic acid for added lip care benefits.
We have our eyes on #130 Sweet Honey, an elegant nude that gives you the #MLBB look, and #290 Millennial Touch, an electrifying fuchsia.
The decadent-looking store also stocks a selection of iconic fragrances – think Light Blue, The One, and K by Dolce&Gabbana – alongside the brand’s latest novelties like Fruit Collection, the fresh fruit-inspired trio of eaux de toilettes, and Dolce Rose, which is the first eau de toilette in the Dolce bouquet.
On top of that, the Dolce&Gabbana Beauty boutique offers an exclusive fragrance line as well. The Velvet Collection is an exquisite series of 16 haute parfumerie scents (and counting!), each inspired by various parts of Italy.
The new Dolce&Gabbana flagship store is now opened at ION Orchard, #B2-44/46.
