Best Restaurants Owned By Fashion Brands

LV The Place Bangkok

The iconic French luxury house has recently opened a new concept store in Bangkok, Thailand, that promises an indulgent experience like no other. Aside from the brand’s creations on offer, the store also houses Le café, the designer brand’s first café in the country, and Gaggan at Louis Vuitton, a fine-dining restaurant helmed by celebrated chef Gaggan Anand.

Coach Restaurant

Renowned American luxury brand Coach has ventured into the fine-dining space with its first-ever restaurant. The eatery, opened in Jakarta, Indonesia, is supposed to be an extension of the label’s authentic New York City legacy. The mid-century modern design is a testament to that and the buttery soft leather upholstery is the representation of the brand’s commitment to delivering luxury in leather.

Ralph’s Coffee and Bar

The iconic brand’s first-ever coffee shop opened back in 2014 in New York City. Like Ralph Lauren, the café did quiet luxury before it was even a thing. Since then, the label has opened coffee shops around the world. They have also introduced the Ralph Coffee Experience in the form of coffee trucks and kiosks in different cities.

Dior Café

The luxury fashion house collaborated with French patissier-chocolatier Pierre Herme to open Dior café, a place where people can indulge in decadent desserts and pure luxury that is a signature of the brand. The café has locations in Seoul, Shanghai and other major cities around the world. It even opened a pop-up at Lake Como, Italy.

Gucci Osteria

Two Italian icons came together to introduce the world to Gucci Osteria, a series of Italian restaurants helmed by renowned chef Massimo Bottura. It all started in the Gucci Garden complex of Florence’s Gucci Museo, incidentally the birthplace of the House of Gucci, and has spawned sister restaurants in cities like Beverly Hills, Tokyo and Seoul.
