WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Isabel Marant blends ethnic bohemia and tomboy street chic effortlessly, and her name has long been on the lips of fashion insiders: editors, models, and actresses. Having conquered the boho-chic market with her impeccable cuts and sense of detail, Marant's success is measured equally in the number of shops and department store corners to her name.

 

Marant’s stores have a lot in common with houses.

Handcrafted woven bamboo screens are suspended in sections to cover the ceiling and walls of this Isabel Marant boutique in Bangkok by Parisian studio Ciguë.

 

Ciguë created 236 screens in different shapes and sizes for the flagship Thailand store of French fashion house Isabel Marant, covering the walls with up to three layers to create an overlapping effect.

 

Located in the new Central Embassy department store, the boutique was designed to reference Thai craft culture, providing a counterpoint to "the generic slickness of globalised branding".

 

The intricate bamboo screens were handmade by local Thai craftsmen, and woven in three different patterns and densities.

 

"The final pattern was obtained by covering the entire surface of the space with a giant and continuous skin made of the screens," the studio told Dezeen. "Then little by little some screens were removed or 'erased' and the white walls appeared, to bring more light and air around the clothes."

Études Studio has opened its first flagship store in Paris. Overlooking a courtyard within le Marais, the space represents the artistic commitment shared by the collective, while offering an invitation into Études Studio’s universe.

 

The first address reflects the wide range of projects that compose Études Studio.

 

The space on the ground floor was designed all in length in a minimalist decor with shades of white and gray, dotted with white concrete beams, large mirrors and transparent partitions. There are two dressing rooms in shop background and the offices of the collective are housed upstairs.

 

Designed to be more than a shop it is also a studio for experimentation. Besides the collections, the shop also brings together under one roof the creative influences of all team members and hosts the creations of artists collaborating for Studies Studio. On top of the ready-to-wear collections there is a selection of accessories, including hats and sneakers, and Études Studio proposes the sale of special editions and exclusive sets.

 

Also present are art books and photography with recent work by Swedish artist Marten Lange and his series of portraits of pigeons.

Hong Kong’s retail scene is one of Asia’s most sophisticated, and its proximity to what now is the planet’s biggest luxury market – yes indeed, that would be China – has further boosted its retail scene in size and diversity. But when only taking the local shoppers into consideration, both young and somewhat older, they know a thing or two about brands, quality and global trends, and they’re certainly not afraid to spend. Retailers are very aware of this susceptibility and the very best among them are constantly on their toes to cater to their highly discerning fashion needs. Following the opening of the very first Off-White store, a veritable scoop we’ve talked about in a previous post, leading retailer I.T innovates yet again by opening up shop for MSGM, a milan-based brand whose popularity has continued to soar among a young global demographic.

 

This new outpost features an aesthetic designed by MSGM’s creative director Massimo Giorgetti. It’s similarly minimalist as the Milanese Mothership, but the use of specific materials and display of abstract artworks by Thomas Raat infuse it with a sense of luxe – hey, this is Hong Kong! – that’s on a par with the string of other i.t retail units on the same block. The Dutch artist is actually the first of a rotating schedule of creatives who will be having an in-store showcase. The new MSGM store stocks the brand’s full range of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories, in addition to a specially designed collection of five exclusive items, including a backpack, slippers, a cropped sweater and two one-piece dresses.

Global fashion and sports lifestyle brand Lacoste known famously for its iconic crocodile logo re-launched it Premium Concept Store which is exclusive to London and in the prime shopping location of Regent Street.

 

Now the space has added an entire new floor therefore almost doubling the size, the store will benefit from more minimal and premium design spread over two floors.

 

The majority of the menswear is confined to the ground floor. Here you'll find lightweight knits and checked cotton shirts in blue and pink hanging against the clean and crisp marble & mirror interior. Also on this floor is the Event Box, which will feature an ever-changing display of each season's capsule collections.

 

Up to the first floor is the shop's real USP and houses the polo lounge, containing the iconic Lacoste polo shirt in which I could see every color possible. Also on the first floor a great collection of mens footwear plus leather goods, kidswear, accessories and womenswear mainline. With the main focus on menswear it’s great to enter a store and be straight into mens collections as with many stores the men have to battle through womenswear before they can start shopping. Not here it’s more about the guys.

 

This store is a breath of fresh air with some great pieces from sportswear for those more casual moments to smart shirting which is good enough for the office.

The concept

 

To provide a physical sales platform to novice upcoming designers and labels without the need to be present themselves so they can dedicate their time fully to their creative exploits.

SCOOP store is not pop up store. On the contrary. Although the brands and products will rotate regularly, the store itself remains. It is the dream platform for young designers and new brands that often lack the resources to open an own sales outlet. SCOOP store offers them a creative answer: space, store equipment, organization and personnel are provided by SCOOP store, so the designer does not need to worry about the sale of their products. So it boils down to the simple value proposition that a starting label or designer rents store space for a fixed monthly fee and does not to worry about the commercial hassle. You determine the price of your products and SCOOP store takes care of selling them, without charging any commission fee.

 

Unique experience

 

Also for today's consumer SCOOP store is an interesting and new shopping experience. Indeed, you will find brands that you cannot buy elsewhere and the products are often unique and / or custom made. As some labels will enter and others will move on when they are ready for the next step, there is always something new to discover. Next to this, the creative environment and the diversity of product range (clothing, art, electronics, jewelry, decorations, toys, furniture, accessories, ...) stand for an exceptional shopping experience in the impressive setting of an old industrial building.

 

Practically

 

Young labels, upcoming designers and artists with no (or limited) physical distribution points available, may offer their products for sale in SCOOP store for a fixed monthly fee and a minimum period of 6 months. The rate is determined on the basis of the type of product and the required store space. The entire turnover is transferred to the lessee on a monthly base. With their deep experience in retail and business consultancy Inge and Benjamin also support the labels to increase sales and to return customer feedback so that the designers know how consumers experience their products and keep in touch with the market. Designers can also organize in-store workshops or even work in SCOOP store for free, what strengthens the store experience for both client and designer.

This concept, two-story store with a whitewashed exposed brick interior carries avant-garde clothing by Japanese designers and vintage treasures. The mission of the owner, Moon Rhee, was to showcase his own line DEAR: along with exquisite vintage pieces he’s acquired over the years by the likes of Junya Watanabe, Comme des Garçons, and Yohji Yamamoto. The store is about 25% vintage to 75% of Moon’s own label. The line is produced in Korea and Japan, and you can sense an almost fervent commitment to construction in the lines of a tailored backless vest or the easy flow of a textured sack skirt.

 

The basement is heaven for antique collectors: globes, frames, ceramics, decorations, and minimalist contemporary designs.

 

The store is a beloved destination for photographers and models working in the fashion industry, but you don’t need expert knowledge to appreciate Rhee’s avant-garde shapes. Black, white, polka dots, and plaid dominate the minimalist space along with a collection of vintage jewelry.

Rachel Comey's flagship store is located in Soho, NYC. The store occupies a former mechanic's garage. The existing shell was retained and refinished to enhance the existing wood joists and large central skylights.

 

Unique, custom finishes include board-formed concrete walls, a "concrete terrazzo" floor made of poured concrete with hand-placed aggregate of marble chips and heavily stucco'd walls, bent brushed brass clothing racks, and a large custom shoe display made from concrete and stones collected from a local beach combined with pumice stones from the designer's denim, stone-washing facility.

 

The exterior of the building was painted white and custom brass numbers, custom exterior light fixtures, custom door handles and signs were added.

The design of Beymen fuses Fashion, Art, and Architecture into an inspirational Fashion Luxury Destination.

 

The environment demonstrates stunning architecture and an elegant interior design that is accented with iconic furniture. Ceiling elements following the building’s structural grid provide orientation, while geometrical patterns reflect specific areas of the store. Traditional Turkish patterns combined with sculptural elements from Venetian plaster provide a modern interpretation of traditional arches. Flooring patterns were designed to frame categories, while columns appear to float from the ceiling. A monumental staircase creates impact and connects customers to two floors, with a bookshop and comfortable seating located midway between to invite lingering. Elegant yet warm furnishings, fixtures and visuals create a luxurious ambiance, with art pieces scattered throughout to provide an element of surprise.

 

To balance navigation and flow between the mall and the store, several “tunnel stores” from brands such as Céline, Chloé and Bottega Veneta have been designed, which have their own doors leading from the mall into the Beymen space. Elsewhere in the store it was all about building in a sense of luxury and service to each department. Both the men’s and women’s areas, for example, offer VIP fitting rooms. To enhance the space and to add imposing landmark transition areas between floors, the business has invested in works from local artists and furniture designers. In all there are six in-store zones showing custom-made art pieces and the commitment to local artists will also be ongoing for Beymen Istanbul, which plans to hold regular art events and talks.

 

Beymen Zorlu offers its own ready-to-wear lines as well as the finest global brands in an elegant destination experience. The Beymen Flagship is on two levels featuring the world’s leading fashion and accessory brands for women, men, kids, and home collections. Zorlu Center is one of the most prestigious mixed-use projects in Europe with Shopping Centre, Raffles Hotel, Residences, Business Center, and Performing Arts Center.

Hermès’ Chinese sister brand Shang Xia opened its first global outpost in Paris. The boutique’s interiors combines Chinese cultural elements with influences from Impressionist art and rhythms inspired by Parisian history to create a cloud-like space.

 

Six thousand thin, rectangular ceramic panels make up the walls and delineate its spaces, and recalls the hutong-inspired brick patchwork of the brand’s Beijing boutique, at the same time channeling the ethereal ambiance of the Shanghai flagship with its walls made of white fabric scrims. Apart from the brand’s well-loved range of clothing, jewelry, furniture and household objects handmade using fine traditional crafts methods, Shang Xia will be celebrating this launch with a special edition cashmere and silk scarf that captures and brings together the spirit of both cultures.

 

Shanghainese folk artist Zhang Meiling has drawn from the style of traditional Jin Shan peasant paintings to conjure up an idyllic landscape of Chinese characters dressed in traditional attire milling about Parisian landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum.
