To create Balenciaga’s new Manhattan flagship , brand creative director Alexander Wang, who was appointed as artistic director only a year ago, collaborated with interior designer Ryan Korban.
The boutique is characterized by its large area, high ceilings, and deep green Verde Ramegiatto covering 5400 sq.ft of the space.
“This color green was the very first thing I thought of when I started thinking about the store. It’s regal and aristocratic but also not so obvious.” said Wang. Shelves are a rich green similar to the marble, but covered in soft suede. The polished limestone-and-marble floor add to the luxurious yet real nature of the space.
