As the ultimate marketplace, the Villa Moda Bahrain (2008) pulses with the richness of overlapping cultures and showcases the artisanship, motifs and techniques of local craftsman. Set in a prime central location with views of the sea, this enchanting international souk hosts innovative brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermés, Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Fendi. Designed as a treasure trove, the 1050m2 retail space in Bahrain is laid out like a small ancient city and each building houses a specific department or brand. A long, narrow corridor leads to a dramatic space with a high-ceiling, giant black and white patterns on custom-made carpets, over-scale wallpaper and Bisazza mosaics. A modest black and white colour palette serves as the back drop for the luxurious, colourful items on display.
