The House of Grace Chen

More like a gorgeous residential home than a conventional store, The House of Grace Chen will appeal to fashionistas and interior design fans alike. For seekers of showstopping Sino-style haute couture, there’s no better one-stop shop in town…

Power dresser of the Chinese elite – as well as Oprah Winfrey and Helen Mirren – Chen’s exclusive three-storey Art Deco mansion in the former French Concession boasts private fitting rooms, an art gallery, library, dining room, garden courtyard, and lounge where clients can enjoy afternoon tea.

Decor is a swoonsome lesson in elegance, teaming white walls and floor-to-ceiling glass and patterned mirror with contemporary chandeliers, graceful sofas and luxe metallic side tables. Mannequins dot the minimal-chic space, clad in Chinese-American Chen’s jaw-dropping gowns, perfect for that red-carpet occasion.

Chen’s appointment-only artistic house is ideal for those who appreciate privacy and personal service. The 1924-built mansion was decorated by Venetian heritage-design experts Kokaistudios, with highlights including original steel-framed glass French doors and a large marble balcony on the top floor. Soft pastel shades complement the couture creations, with a showroom of Chen’s latest styles and serene lounge for consultations on the ground floor, with three distinctive VIP fitting salons on the second floor. The dove-grey top-floor library will host cultural salons, a garage is now a glass-wrapped gallery for art and fashion exhibitions, and indoor-outdoor dining areas encourage you to relax, socialise and get inspired…
