Alaïa opens first store outside of Paris in China
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.
