Italian luxury brand Dolce&Gabbana has opened its first beauty boutique in Singapore. Located in ION Orchard, the Dolce&Gabbana Beauty boutique is the second one in South-east Asia, with Bangkok, Thailand hosting the first outpost in this region.
Welcome to La Casa Dolce&Gabbana
Adorned with luxurious wallpapers and rich upholstered seating, the “La Casa” (or “the House” in Italian) concept of the store reflects the brand’s desire to create a familial environment where customers can feel at ease while shopping.
Flowers, Damasco, black lace, animalier, and Baroque prints iconic to Dolce&Gabbana are also on full display as carpets, wallpaper and upholstered dining chairs in all corners of the 92 sqm store. The brand spared no expense in decking out the store with opulent furniture too. A faux fireplace made with portoro marble (a type of black marble with golden veins) and gold Damasco textile form the store’s focal point and houses the precious Dolce&Gabbana Velvet fragrance collection. Dining and coffee tables made with portoro marble and gilded cake stands are also used as displays for the products.
Feel like a Queen
Deeply rooted in fashion, Dolce&Gabbana Beauty is designed to bring joy and confidence with its makeup line. The prints and designs on the packaging bring to mind a summer vacation in Sicily, along with its vivid hues and rich Mediterranean culture.
Each product is designed as a fashion accessory, often adorned with a motif or print inspired by the fashion house and its Italian heritage. The formulas are designed to be high performance while offering ease of use. Imbued with Mediterranean Glow Complex developed by beauty giant Shiseido, this nourishing complex features ingredients like Mediterranean fig extract, and olive oil native to Italy. Combined with its exclusive makeup formulas, the products not only hydrate and protect skin, they also impart a healthy glow.

Dolce&Gabbana Fruit Collection EDT in Orange, Lemon and Pineapple
Exclusively available at the Dolce&Gabbana Beauty boutique, the Fruit Collection lets you take a slice of Sicily everywhere you go. Citrusy notes of orange, lemon and pineapple paint a picture of freshness, playfulness and energy of the Mediterranean.
Lemon opens with Sicilian lemon and Calabrian bergamot oils for a tangy freshness that mellows to a woody earthy base. Orange is playful, fruity and positive, with orange fruit, leaves and blossoms mingling to form a juicy burst of sunny accord.
Pineapple captures the essence of this sweet tropical fruit, bringing memories of sun-soaked Sicily. Sensual orchid pod, amber and moss brings out a base note of spiciness.
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty is located at 2 Orchard Turn, ION Orchard #B2-44/46.
