Dolce & Gabbana, in collaboration with Dar Global, the international arm of Dar Al Arkan, a Saudi property developer, has announced its entry into the real estate market with a luxury hotel project in the Maldives. The completion date for the project has yet to be disclosed, but Dolce & Gabbana's move into real estate is seen as an exciting step for the renowned Italian brand.
Dar Global has a reputation for prestigious projects around the world, such as Les Vagues by Elie Saab in Qatar, Urban Oasis by Missoni Home in Dubai, and Upside Living Villas in Riyadh with interiors by Versace. Along with the Maldives hotel, Dolce & Gabbana has also revealed plans for residential projects in Miami, USA, and Marbella, Spain.
This expansion into real estate follows in the footsteps of other luxury fashion brands like Giorgio Armani and Bulgari, who have successfully integrated their design and brand ethos into residential towers and hotels, offering an elevated lifestyle experience to their guests. For instance, the Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa is known for its sophisticated color scheme and furniture from Armani Casa, the brand's homeware line.
Dolce & Gabbana's upcoming hotel in the Maldives is expected to reflect the brand's unique style, with bold patterns and prints influenced by Sicilian aesthetics. Although no images of the property have been released yet, the recent launch of Dolce & Gabbana Home Collection in 2021, which offers a range of home accessories, provides a glimpse of the brand's distinctive approach to interior design.
The collaboration between Dolce & Gabbana and Dar Global is anticipated to result in a luxurious and iconic hotel that embodies the brand's renowned "made-in-Italy" ethos and sets a new standard in hospitality.
