Malls.Ru have compiled their own rating of the most interesting Moscow shopping complexes of luxury and premium. It is noteworthy that today the capital market accounts for more than half of such facilities throughout Russia.
Top 10 of the best luxury shopping malls in Moscow:
"Seasons". 65 000 sq.m
Since the opening in 2007, the Four Seasons Gallery on Kutuzovsky remains the most iconic center for luxury goods trade in Moscow. Constantly updating and supplementing the gallery with new luxury brands, today the shopping complex unites more than 150 world names - first of all, boutiques of clothes and accessories for the whole family, jewelry stores Chaumet, Mercury, Mont Blanc, as well as galleries of furniture, interior items and home goods and even a Porsche sports car showroom. And, unlike most similar projects, Seasons can boast a multiplex and a dozen restaurants with cuisines from around the world.
"Crocus City Mall". 62 000 sq.m
Crocus City Mall, also known as Tropical Boutique Paradise, has perhaps the best suite of luxury tenants in Moscow. About 62 boutiques are open today on 000 200 square, including Lanvin, Prada, Zegna, Celine, Versace and Cavalli. In addition to clothes, shoes and jewelry boutiques, luxury manufacturers of interior items, electronics and home accessories are represented. By the way, there is also a “coveted” car salon: in April 2012 of the year, Lamborghini Moscow was opened here.
TSUM. 60 000 sq.m.
The Moscow Central Department Store on Petrovka, not being a classic shopping center, nevertheless remains one of the main places for the sale of fashionable clothes and luxury shoes. Largely due to its location, the first and main department store in the country attracts tens of thousands of customers every day. Shoe boutiques and accessories, as well as corners of more than 1500 brands, including Dolce & Gabbana, Armani Collezioni, Givenchy, John Richmond and other high brands, are open at TSUM. The Central Department Store also presents grocery stores, perfumes and cosmetics, beauty booths, cafes and restaurants.
GUM. 80 000 sq.m
The oldest trading platform in Moscow, GUM on Red Square, got its present look only a few years ago. In 2004, the department store was bought by Bosco di Ciliegi, one of the largest distributors of luxury brands in Russia. After that, the composition of the tenants of the Main Universal Fashionable changed from the mass market to luxury. Today Hermes, Burberry, Etro, Escada, Ferragamo boutiques and dozens of exclusively presented Bosco boutiques are open in GUM. However, while Lacoste and Zara are adjacent to Moschino and Lancel, the composition of tenants of the GUM will be updated for more than one year. At the same time, Bosco is restoring the traditions of GUM: the Grocery Store No.1, the GUM-Skating Rink, the dining room No.57, the Festivalnoy Café are open ... and many more projects are ahead.
"Hymen". 15 000 sq.m
Gimeney, favorably located on Bolshaya Yakimanka inside the Garden Ring, can offer its customers brands that are no longer in Moscow. At the same time, the shopping center is mainly focused on win-win classics - Pal Zileri, Max Mara, Santoni and others. As pleasant bonuses - chamber salons of exquisite accessories for home comfort and a conceptual cafe in the hi-tech style.
Lotte Plaza. 23 000 sq.m
Lotte Plaza, part of the eponymous multifunctional complex, is perhaps the youngest and at the same time one of the most successful luxury shopping centers in the center of Moscow. Lotte Plaza owes its success to a large extent to its brilliant location at the intersection of Novinsky and Novy Arbat, as well as to a strong pool of tenants that combined the brands of Crocus and Mercury Group. Today, under the same roof, Lotte Plaza represents the Nina Ricci, Ferre and Gucci corners, which are adjacent to CK, Diesel and the company of simpler brands. At the same time, Lotte Plaza places great emphasis on positioning Luxury & Premium, offering many additional VIP-class customer services.
Neglinnaya Plaza. 14 000 sq.m
Another “debutant” in the market of high-quality shopping centers in Moscow, Neglinnaya Plaza shopping center on Trubnaya quickly became one of the must visit sites for connoisseurs of premium brands, including interesting brands on an exclusive basis. Classic clothing brands include jewelry stores, home furnishings, gift shops, and a premium grocery store, beauty studio, chain restaurant, and coffee shop.
"Spring". 15 000 sq.m
Luxury trading house “Vesna” on the new Arbat is focused primarily on fashionable shopping. Anchor tenants are the Globus Gourmet grocery store and the large Articoli perfume and cosmetics store. On three floors of the complex, there are dozens of prestigious brands' corners, mainly classics - Corneliani, Ermanno Scervino, Marina Rinaldi, Barbara Bui, La Perla, etc. Salons of jewelry and gifts act as an addition.
Tsvetnoy Central Market. 36 000 sq.m
More of a European-style department store than a mall in its classic expression, Tsvetnoy Central Market has become a favorite destination for those who are “tired of everything.” On the square in 36 000 sq.m on 5 floors that are not alike, they presented a “explosive mixture” for a younger audience - Comme des Garcons, Vivivenne Westwood, Ann Demeulemeester ... There are also very affordable brands, as well as very few gifts, equipment and beauty items. The upper three floors are occupied by restaurants, bars and gastronomic cafes.
"Smolensky Passage". 22 000 sq.m
Smolensky Passage, most of which was once occupied by the Kalinka Stockmann department store, has changed a lot since then and today it is a gallery of premium brands. Among the most interesting tenants are Ferre, Richmond, Agent Provocateur, who are not so easy to find in Moscow, as well as classic clothing and shoe brands, watches, jewelry and business gifts. Another reason to visit Smolensky Passage is a premium deli, a conveniently located World Class club club and a dance studio. Based on materials malls.ru.
