Kuwait's luxury retail sector welcomes a chic new space that perfectly reflects Gucci's contemporary design cues.

Italian luxury label Gucci has opened the doors to its new store at Bloomingdale's in 360 Mall in Kuwait, the first in the country to showcase the maison's new retail direction first seen at its flagship store in Milan. Centred around a pink colour palette, the 1,826 square feet store will offer a complete suite of coveted Gucci pieces, including the Cruise '17 collection.

With decorative highlights including Oriental carpets, marble tables and ornamental trunks, the new space is an exercise in luxury juxtaposition, playing up the tension of both design and materials ­– think chic against industrial, marble against cement and velvet against rivets.
