WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Aesop’s latest Parisian signature store, on rue du Vieux Colombier in Saint-Sulpice, was created in collaboration with Italian architects Dimore Studio. The firm’s hallmark approach – ‘evocative of far-off and distant times, counterpoised between softness and rigidity, light and dark’ – is well in keeping with the history and culture of this elegant, unhurried neighbourhood. In the manner of the area’s older boutiques and private homes, opulent materials such as bronze, marble and velvet create an intimate welcome and transport the visitor to a place both curiously contemporary and reassuringly ‘ancien’.

 

Set against sumptuous pink velvet, a brass vanity extends from the store’s large front window to its rear. This striking fixture houses three sinks and two vintage mirrors. Across the marble chessboard floor, a timber-framed wall unit displays the brand’s product offering on bronze shelves.

 

Soft blue-grey dominates the interior palette and effects a pervasive calm; it is complemented by warm metallic accents effected by the point-of-sale counter, two vintage bronze chairs, and vintage chandeliers. A spiral staircase at the rear echoes the metalwork ovals that frame the top of the façade. Behind the stairs, a hidden opening was discovered and fashioned into a window.
