Marina Bay Sands Shoppes expands children’s collection
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands has added luxury label Dolce & Gabbana Junior to its growing line-up of luxury childrenswear retailers.
The high end Singapore shopping centre which relaunched with a luxury focus in April, had already attracted Fendi Kids and Baby Dior to its retail store portfolio, part of a plan to build on its Children’s Collection to present more stylish options for “little adults”.
Dolce & Gabbana Junior is the Italian designer label’s first Junior store in Southeast Asia. Spanning more than 1400 sqft, the new boutique is painted with a pearl finish and furnished with lacquered wood furniture frames to create a shopping ambience that is soothing and refined. The Dolce & Gabbana Junior collection includes ready-to-wear for girls, boys, and newborn from ages up to 8.
And more brands are yet to arrive.
Come December, Armani Junior and Bonpoint will also be joining the The Shoppes’ Children’s Collection. Set to be its largest store in Singapore, the Armani Junior store will be showcased as a sleek and modernised concept for stylish juniors. It completes the family of Armani collections at The Shoppes – namely Armani/Marina Bay, the first and only duplex in Southeast Asia to house both Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, as well as Armani Collezioni.
Armani Junior will open with its soon-to-launch Spring Summer 2016 collection featuring colorful and fun prints, while Bonpoint will unveil a selection of Shoppes-exclusive pieces from its Christmas 2015 collection and Cruise 2016 collection. Unique to the store is a special corner dedicated to its YAM collection which caters for young ladies and mothers, allowing for perfect mini-me looks that could be worn with their sisters or daughters. Bonpoint will also carry its full hypoallergenic skincare and signature perfume range in-store.
The launch of Armani Junior and Bonpoint brings along a plethora of trendy ready-to-wear for newborns and children up to the ages of 16.
Aside from the Children’s Collection, other boutiques that are opening at The Shoppes in the fourth quarter of 2015 include Ted Baker, the only Loro Piana store in Singapore, as well as the largest Michael Kors and Valentino stores in Singapore to date, spanning 3200 sqft and 3500 sqft respectively. More recently, the mall celebrated the opening of Furla’s Singapore flagship store and the biggest in Southeast Asia at 1600 sqft.
