BERLIN — Reflecting both the strength of the German economy and the ongoing retail surge here, Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana have opened their first designer flagship stores in Berlin.
Located across the street from one another on the designer-studded stretch of Kurfürstendamm, Armani took over a 4,000-square-foot corner store at number 54, while Dolce & Gabbana moved into a two-level, 7,000-square-foot space at number 187. The Berlin doors represent the sixth Giorgio Armani and the second directly operated Dolce & Gabbana store in Germany. Armani operates five Emporio Armani stores in Germany, including one in Berlin.
