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.
The famous fashion brand Givenchy is opening its new store in Seoul, Korea and two others in China. This space is proof that when using the right combination of materials, the interior doesn’t need additional accessories to identify the place as exquisite. The combination of herring bone wood flooring with the white marble and mirrored cabinets are just a beautiful match.
It isn't strange with all the sophisticated details the past decade was about, that now designers and audience alike are resorting to more minimal yet powerful designs. The Delbôve boutique in Brussels designed by Christophe Remy is no exception.
Delbôve is a high-end cosmetics line recently re-launched by Gina d’Alsembourg. The branding in addition to the interior design was done beautifully. The brand has a long history which made the redesigning project trickier keeping in mind its existing customers and new ones to come.
We’ve all been loving Valentino’s Rockstud & Naked Rockstud collection as they have been on fashion enthusiasts everywhere. However, in terms of their shop designs, Velentino have been working lately on a new concept for the stores to portray intimacy yet a luxurious feel to the space. Their boutiques are usually divided into several rooms housing the different aspects of their collections. Their latest boutiques are in Milan, Sao Paulo, Paris and Beverly Hills. The concept developed by Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, in cooperation with world renowned architect David Chipperfield.
If you are headed to Milan for the iSaloni or any other reason, you might want to consider visiting this beautiful bakery, Vyta, designed by Colli + Galliano Architects. The bakery started with one branch and now has four locations. The long concave/convex wood planks give an amazing character to the space in addition to the lovely Ripple Chairs from Moroso. The color contrast, the food display, & richness of materials used complement the concept well and give the bakery a gourmet image just as their products portray. I posted some food photos below from their facebook page, and now I am hungry. Enjoy
