The designer reached his climax in the 1950s and 1960s, when he clothed the style icons Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. But still today his label stands for pure luxury.

This is one of the biggest shopping centers in Moscow, and until 1922, it was known as 'Muir and Merilis' after two Scottish men who set up a trading company here in the late 19th Century. Elderly Muscovites will still use this name. A five-story building was constructed and opened in 1908. At that time, it was the best-equipped store in Moscow, and customers were especially enthusiastic about electrically-powered lifts, and the fame of the Moscow shop spread throughout Russia.
