Saudi Jawahir opens its first Alexander Mcqueen boutique in Riyadh
Alexander Mcqueen, which is considered one of the highest brands in British fashion, opened its first boutique in Riyadh, Centria Mall on the first week of December on 2017. Centria Mall is considered one of the most luxurious fashion malls in Saudi Arabia.
The retail concept behind the store has been conceived by Alexander McQueen Creative Director Sarah Burton. The design, palette, interior architecture and materiality all reflect the world of Alexander McQueen that’s classic, contemporary, familiar and subversive.
Alexander Mcqueen is considered a brand which has become synonymous with modern British couture. At 124 square meters, the retail space offers an exclusive and complete McQueen retail experience. The store
houses women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, bags, shoes and menswear.
The boutique presents itself in modern art design; oversized tiles of Nero Marquina marble are used across the floor and stairs. The walls are covered with the handmade plaster ‘wing panel’ relief.
A selection of special commissions and unique pieces of mid-century-inspired furniture are curated within the store. In the women’s area, armchairs upholstered in antique blush and black velvet are paired with gold
sculptural coffee tables.
Colours are predominantly blush and black with accents of aged and polished brass.
