Dubai, UAE- The French designer Catherine Malandrino opened a new boutique in the Dubai Mall. The spectacular 36 foot high citrus yellow gradated glass and stainless steel façade embodies the essence of the Catherine Malandrino brand welcoming visitors into the 1400 square foot space.

Continuing in the tradition of Catherine Malandrino boutiques, this newest addition is designed in collaboration with French architect Christophe Pillet. The color palette of the boutique reflects Catherine Malandrino’s aesthetic with shades of warm citrus yellow. Iconic pieces frame the space: a dramatic “Summer Rain” chandelier, consisting of 953 Murano hand-blown glass drops suspended by metal chains, and a patchwork screen of amber glass to endlessly capture the light of Dubai.

The Catherine Malandrino boutique will feature the designer’s two collections, the Malandrino designer collection and accessories (bags, shoes and jewelry), and the Catherine Malandrino contemporary line. Unique lifestyle items chosen by Catherine will be presented and sold in the space as well. Special designs will be created for Dubai to respond to the unique demand of the clientele.

In March of 2005, Catherine Malandrino held a fashion show in Dubai during the World Cup- inspired by wonderful memories of a night in the desert. Having met the extraordinary women of Dubai society, Catherine has been touched by their mysterious silhouettes and unique sense of fashion that is perfectly suited for her luxurious feminine designs.

Catherine is happy to open her doors in the Middle East, making Dubai the

latest destination for the internationally sought after brand. She is very proud

to be a part of the largest mall in the world, and cannot wait to welcome a new

generation of fashionable women to her new home.

The Catherine Malandrino boutique opened its doors on January 15, 2009.
