Lisbon, Portugal – Versace has just celebrated the opening of a new boutique in Portugal’s capital city Lisbon.
Located at 238 Avenida da Liberdade in the city’s most posh shopping district, the boutique occupies an area of 440 square meters. It blends traditional architectural values of Italy with the dynamism and energy of Versace today.
“I just adore the design concept of the Versace Stores, which pays tribute to Italy’s cultural heritage”, says artistic director Donatella Versace. “For me the boutique suggests an uninterrupted dialogue between our past and our future, between Versace and our clients.”
Among it remarkable features are marble mosaics and brass elements that create a luxurious and contemporary ambience in which to present the prêt-à-porter collections and accessories for men and women. A meeting point between the past and the future, the boutique features mosaic floors inspired by Byzantine churches of the Ninth Century. The circular pathway of the mosaic floors follows the flow of the walls.
