LONDON — Dolce & Gabbana will open its first men’s wear boutique on Sloane Street in London in August. The 2,238-square-foot store will occupy the former Tommy Hilfiger flagship space and neighbor Bottega Veneta and Shanghai Tang boutiques.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana teamed with Ferruccio Laviani and Studio Piuarch to create a slick design for the store, which will feature glass, varnished walls, chandeliers - all in black - as well as canaletto walnut shelving and display cabinets. The boutique will be set over two floors - sportswear, denim and accessories will be on ground level, while suits, knitwear, underwear, beachwear and gym wear will be located in the basement
