Palladium has launched its first mall in south India with renowned brands from across the globe. Lucky for us, that this is located in the Phoenix MarketCity premise in Velachery. Spread across nearly 2.50 lakhs sq. ft. with 75 stores across three levels, it intends to provide a unique shopping experience in its aesthetically designed ambient spaces. One can find big international brands like Canali, Michael Kors, Coach, Hugo Boss, Paul & Shark, Kate Spade, Tumi and several others under one roof.
The luxury centre has drawn its design and architecture inspiration from renowned artists and landmarks bringing together various elements that play on the five senses. The master plan was created by internationally acclaimed architect Benoy, while design and interiors were articulated by Urban Studio.
The facade of Palladium Chennai is inspired by the tufting on the Chanel bag; the dome in the lobby with its video projections, is a nod to the Sistine Chapel and the mirror cladding on the ceilings is inspired by the Sheesh Mahal. Look closely, you will even find the sleek lines of the iPhone in how the various services have been incorporated into the space.
Palladium hosts Fashion and Department stores namely Shoppers Stop, H&M and Splash. Brands like Shaze, Le Creuset, Meena Bazaar, Vajor, Coverstory, Kazo, Cadini, Nike Kicks lounge, Being Human, Springfield, New Balance have opened their first stores in the city in Palladium.
