While on a recent visit to Dubai, I visited The Outlet Village which is located in between Dubai and Abi Dhabi.
Luxury Fashion Brands are showcased in this scenic and charming high-end Tuscan style mall with architecture inspired by the medieval hill town of San Gimignano.
The architecture of The Outlet Village is inspired by San Gimignano, the walled medieval hilltop town in Tuscany that was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1990. The attention to detail is quite impressive with the replicated stonework, archways and pebbled streets.
Dubai certainly likes it shopping malls to be big, bold and glitzy but this one is in complete contrast to The Mall of Emirates or Dubai Mall.
Brands include DKNY, Dunhill, Ted Baker, Tommy Hilfiger, Diesel alongside multibrand stores such as Priceless and Etoile that will sell all their designer brands including Fendi, Tom Ford, Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Tory Burch, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana and Kenzo.
It is a 30-40 minute drive from Dubai but an ideal mall to visit to escape the heat of Dubai and walk in streets of this Italian hill town!
