The stores' concept features the exclusive Peter Marino architectural design

This month, Bulgari opened up two new concept stores in Kuala Lumpur—one at The Gardens Mall and the other at KLCC.

Following the renovation of the historical Roman flagship in 2014 and the launch of the new flagship in London New Bond Street in early 2016, the new architectural concept by the Architect Peter Marino is now being rolled out in key locations worldwide. 

At the newly opened store in The Gardens Mall, the brand showcases its Mediterranean origins and Italian touches within its 95 square metres space. The result is a sort of virtual journey in a street of the eternal city of Rome.

This design is also visible at the newly renovated and relocated boutique at KLCC. Standing at 143 square metres, the store draws on the idea of ancient marbles and stones typical of Roman buildings that are reinterpreted in a classic geometry play between innovation and tradition.

Both stores are adorned with Imperial Saffron shantung silk, while the walls are decorated with Vintage photos of its most famous endorsements by celebrities who have been fans of the brand. A VIP area to view the most precious creations in privacy, is surrounded by a Pantheon Mesh grid.
