Alexander McQueen launches first China boutique

Nov 3, 2011

It is now Alexander McQueen’s turn to strengthen its position in the Chinese market. Already sold in multi-brand stores, PPR’s luxury brand has just opened its first China boutique in Beijing. In order to launch the boutique, which covers a total area of 400 square metres over two floors, the fashion house partnered with Joyce, a Hong-Kong-based luxury retailer which has already opened a number of franchises in China with other big European names such as Marni, Dries Van Noten and Balenciaga.

The new boutique can be found in Sanlitun North Village, a luxury shopping centre in Beijing. To celebrate the occasion, Joyce and Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton recreated the label’s Autumn-Winter 2011 show as seen in Paris.

Operating another 5 franchises in the Middle-East and 8 flagship stores in the United States, Japan, Milan and London, the capital that experienced first-hand the British designer’s blossoming, the brand currently runs a total of 14 stores.
