From the decandent to the divine: Shopping in Queenstown
Forget about souvenirs, Queenstown’s shopping precinct caters for fashionistas young and old alike.
Well beyond souvenirs, Queenstown’s shopping precinct caters for fashionistas young and old alike. If it’s a luxurious something special that you’re after, make a beeline to Louis Vuitton’s new store – one word of warning: you won’t want to leave. Perched by the edge of Lake Wakatipu with views of Cecil Peak, the boutique is truly one of a kind. Local furniture designer Ed Cruikshank was enlisted to instil the space with the spirit of the South Island and the result is unforgettable. Your next stop needs to be WORLD’s recently opened boutique, which is just footsteps around the corner. On offer are a covetable array of luxurious fragrance and beauty brands – Amouage, Cire Trudon candles and Santa Maria Novella skincare – as well as its eponymous seasonal fashion collections. Store manager Cheryl is a wealth of knowledge and will be able to assist in finding the perfect scent.
