03/11/2008 Carlo Pignatelli opens his first single-brand boutique in Beijing
Last 26th of October Carlo Pignatelli opened his first single-brand boutique in Beijing, in a very prestigious area. The store is in fact situated in Jinbao Place, a real temple of international luxury. The new boutique in the Chinese capital is divided into two distinct areas. The first of these, measuring approximately 200 square metres, is entirely dedicated to formal wear. The second, situated opposite the first, will host the “Carlo Pignatelli Outside” collection and accessories. A feeling of welcome is guaranteed by the warm tones of the oak and bronzed aluminium of the inserts. In this context of calm sophistication, the transparency of the crystals and the mirrored surfaces are emphasised and arranged in a play on pale/dark contrasts. Brand identity is strikingly and unmistakably represented by the new bronzed emblem on a black background. For the occasion world famous guests and the international press have been invited and Fashion Tv cameras filmed the event.
