Located in the Shin Kong Place mall, the new Beijing space will mark the famed brand's third store, with the other two located in Paris.

On December 10, the Tunisian-born designer is set to host a special opening event at the store, with a unique exhibition of Azzedine Alaïa's evening gowns on display at the store for the next month. "I like Beijing very much. It is an honest city with a deep history," Alaïa stated in an interview posted on the mall's website.
