Galeries Lafayette open

Galeries Lafayette has opened in Dubai Mall - well, kind of

The super-chic French department store Galeries Lafayette has opened in Dubai Mall.

The fashion and home collection floors are good to go, while the rest of the store will be fully operational by September.

The brand is supposed to bring we mere mortals a taste of French style. Once it's finished, there will be three floors including fashion, homes and interiors, beauty, and cafes, as well as a bespoke personal shopping service if you have no idea what to buy.

The grand opening, scheduled for the end of September, will mark the launch of Lafayette Gourmet and the store's restaurant, and coincide with the end of Ramadan.
