Rise of luxury retail right in the heart of the capital

If it is high-end retail therapy that you seek, Phnom Penh won’t disappoint. The city has been playing host to an increasing number of global luxury brands.

Vattanac Capital, at 66 Preah Monivong Boulevard, is the city’s leading luxury retail space, defined by its iconic style and elegance. The exquisitely designed stores are meticulously zoned to deliver an enriching and cutting-edge experience for shoppers that reach the highest international standards.

At Vattanac Capital, you can discover international and sophisticated fashion for men and women by German brand Hugo Boss. The store’s collections offer everything you need for the perfect look for formal occasions, or for club wear and casual dressing for your leisure time. Right next to Hugo Boss is world-renowned Italian brand, Salvatore Ferragamo.

Ferragamo’s style is revered today for its handcrafted shoes, handbags, belts and other impeccable leather accessories. The latest collection of ready-to-wear women’s wear also represents the true epitome of Italian luxury. Brioni is another Italian high-end fashion brand within Vattanac Capital.

A menswear couture house, it focuses on outfitting gentlemen, giving them a power look in and out of the boardroom. You will not be disappointed with its much acclaimed made-to-measure suits, and sartorial ready-to-wear collections.

Ladies’ hearts will also leap when they immerse themselves in the world of Longchamp, a powerhouse fashion market leader in leather goods that bring together craftsmanship, creativity and French elegance. Founded in 1948 by Jean Cassegrain, Longchamp is still family run and has ever since been the premium brand for leather goods and handbags for French women who are said to have the world’s most cultivated taste.

Longchamp bags combine timeless elegance with modern high fashion, and spoil shoppers with seemingly endless choices of designs and colours, in traditional French luxury accessories. In the Longchamp store located inside Vattanac Capital every lady will find handbag and leather accessories perfectly matching her tastes and vision of self expression. And there is no better time to pay a visit to Longchamp than now because until July 10, 2016, shoppers can save up to 40 per cent of the original purchasing price.

The choices in this upmarket address are not limited to adults, though. The selection of daywear and nightwear at Petit Bateau promises to dress your little ones in comfort, quality and style. The beautiful materials and impeccable cuts, lasting season after season, are the ideal companion from childhood to adolescence.

If face and body pampering is what you are in the mood for, step into Clarins or L’Occitane en Provence – luxury cosmetics brands from France which pride themselves on using natural and environmentally friendly ingredients. When you visit Clarins, be sure to factor in more time to sample the services at this Parisian beauty spa.
