This is one of the most exclusive shopping locations in the city, with a phenomenal range of international designer fashions and couture. Quartier 206 sets luxury fashion against a background of world class architecture.

A key feature is the atrium with curved staircases and a black and white mosaic floor, evocative of the San Marco church in Venice. The architecture, designed by the celebrated New York firm of Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners, lends a beguiling fascination to Quartier 206. A tour round the stylish store is almost like a journey to another world. You might say that Quartier 206 is not just a store, but a way of life. All the international fashion elite can be found here: Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent – Rive Gauche, Etro, Moschino, Louis Vuitton, La Perla, Strenesse and Bottega Veneta. The heart of the complex is the Anne Maria Jagfeld department store, with fashion, accessories, cosmetics, jewellery, books and art. On two new floors, children’s clothing, organic food and a stationery department were added.
