Queenstown’s premium emporium T Galleria by DFS, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, has recently added two of the world’s most stylish fashion houses to its collection.
DFS General Manager Queenstown Mario Gabriel says Moncler which is a legendary Italian ski, mountain and city wear brand and British fashion house Burberry have been added to the retail mix.
“The newcomers have transformed two prime storefront areas on either side of the galleria entranceway into fashion destinations in their own right.”
He says T Galleria by DFS, Queenstown appeals to both locals and visitors.
The Moncler brand was born in 1952 in a tiny French ski village with a focus on sports clothing for the mountain. Guided by the motto ‘born in the mountains, lives in the city’ it is today based in Italy and renowned for the quality and insulation factors of its down jackets and cutting-edge design collaborations aimed at Gen X and Millennial consumers.
Mario says fans of the quintessential Burberry trench coat, created by Thomas Burberry over 100 years ago, can experience the quality for themselves for the first time in the South Island along with an extensive range of Burberry bags, shoes, scarves and knitwear.
Other new retailers coming soon to the store include French jeweller and watchmaker extraordinaire Cartier.
T Galleria by DFS, Queenstown opened its doors in late 2022 in an exceptional refurbished three-level store, previously known as the O’Connells complex, in the centre of the resort. The luxury emporium boasts over 120 international and premium local New Zealand brands of which almost 40 of are exclusively available to the store.
Renowned fashion brands such as Chloé, Stella McCartney and Kenzo, beauty from Dior, Estée Lauder, Lancôme, Tom Ford, La Prairie, Clarins and Gucci, as well as a range of watches, wine, food and gifts have already proved a drawcard.
“Customers who come into the store for the first time never cease to be impressed and really do enjoy the whole experience,” says Mario. “With so much under one roof there’s definitely no need to fly to buy!”
