Luxury fashion house Dior opened on 25 October the doors of its first standalone stores in Mexico at the Artz Pedregal shopping center in Mexico City, unveiling two separate spaces for its men’s and women’s offering.
Located in the southern part of Mexico City, Artz Pedregal is a mixed-use development opened in 2018 with commercial, office and public park space. It has several luxury retail tenants, including Louis Vuitton, Hermès and Gucci.
The facade of the women’s Dior boutique uses the house’s cannage motif, after the Napoleon III-style canework chairs on which Christian Dior liked to seat guests at his fashion shows. The interior takes inspiration from Parisian apartments, featuring furniture including a concrete and mirror console created by The French Vikings atelier.
The men’s boutique has a gray-and-white marble facade and an interior with three distinct areas for leather goods, footwear and ready-to-wear. An oversize herringbone parquet lends a residential feel to the space, which has comfy armchairs and a VIP lounge decorated in a beige toile de Jouy canvas, a tribute to Christian Dior’s first boutique, which was covered in the same print.

Prada Group, the holding company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange has agreed to buy the four Prada stores in Milan for EUR 66 million from Fratelli Prada, the co-founders of the Prada house. Fratelli Prada is owned by Miuccia Prada, Alberto Prada and Marina Prada Bianchi.
The stores being sold include Prada’s first ever store at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, which the brand opened in 1913, two stores in Via Montenapoleone and one in Via Spiga. In a statement, the company said this “will be an important step in further developing and extending the group’s brand identity.”
