• ANTONIA MILANO Located in the buzzing heart of the Brera district, inside the masterfully renovated 19th century Palazzo Cagnola, the Antonia boutique offers an immersive, customized and sharply-edited shopping experience that stems from the far-sighted and experimental vision of Antonia Giacinti.

    designed by renown italian architect Vincenzo de Cotiis, the 600-square-meter shopping destination is a contemporary expression of art, form and function that seamlessly bonds tradition with innovation. Three distinct selling areas house the men’s, women’s and accessories collections, framed by plush velvets, exposed time-worn walls, plexiglas fixtures, marble and bronze-framed furnishings.

  • ANTONIA MACAO Designed by Italian architect Vincenzo de Cotiis, the two-level Macao boutique measures 3,000-square meters and is located inside the Parisian Macao conglomerate at the Cotai Strip Resorts Macao. The high-impact décor includes colored mirrors, smoky glass, steel and brass and edgy Led lighting, all jazzed up with flashes of pink, sky blue, sage and emerald green.

    Considered the largest and most prestigious boutique in all of Macao and of Greater China, Antonia is the go-to shopping destination for locals and tourists thanks to a signature and inventive brand mix that includes Gucci, Valentino, Saint Laurent, Off-white, Sacai, Rick Owens, Giuseppe Zanotti, Versace and Undercover. The selection is personally curated by Antonia Giacinti, who also oversees the merchandising, visuals and lifestyle image.

    In the expansive mall, home to the mono-brand stores of Jil Sander, Marni, Maison Margiela, D-Squared, Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney, Neil Barrett, Alexander McQueen, Carven and Versus, among others, the new Antonia boutique steals the spotlight in terms of vision, size and position. Dedicated to men’s and women’s clothing and accessories lines, it also houses a handful of corners dedicated to the edgier labels.

  • ANTONIA at EXCELSIOR MILANO Excelsior Milano is a unique shopping destination, an exclusive and innovative luxury department store designed by star architect Jean Nouvel and Vincenzo de Cotiis, who transformed a former Milanese cinema into an innovative fashion hub. Spanning seven floors, it is defined by a contemporary and eye-catching design featuring artsy video installations that show a sophisticated lifestyle journey through the worlds of fashion, high-tech, gadgets and fine foods.

    Excelsior’s sprawling fashion assortment, instead, is conceived by retail guru Antonia, the driving force behind the trendsetting Milan-based Antonia boutique, who works her vision, inventiveness and passion on the fashion floors. Here, her innovative formula becomes a container of ideas for which a variety of brands offer round-the-clock dressing through a selection divided by style and look rather than by brand. Prices vary from basic to high fashion. Also of note are the exclusive high-profile collaborations between designers/celebrities and sportswear brands such as Nike, Puma and Adidas.
