A PARISIAN LEGEND IN JAKARTA. Opened in Paris in 1894, the first Galeries Lafayette quickly became one of Paris’ top department stores and a veritable sartorial institution in the City of Lights. Since then, the iconic department store has opened locations in major cities across the globe, including Berlin, Casablanca, New York and Dubai.

Now, the very first Galeries Lafayette store located in Asia is set to open this month in Jakarta’s Pacific Place mall. Thierry Prévost, vice president of international development of Galeries Lafayette, said “Jakarta is a natural new development for Galeries Lafayette in the region, with a high standard of sophistication and refinement.” The store is known for offering clothing that is current, multifaceted and diverse, with everything from iconic labels to the works of rising new talents.

With over 3,800 listed brands and 150 exclusive labels from across the world, the retailer has been able to put together an incomparable selection. Designed by Plajer & Franz studio, a Berlin-based international architecture and graphic design firm, Galeries Lafayette’s Jakarta location evokes a striking sense of fashion and space through the use of opulent materials such as marble, polished steel, tinted glass, topped off by Galeries Lafayette’s iconic coupole (an embellished interior dome) that reflects the store’s illustrious history.
