The nearly 3,444-square-foot store, which now includes the building’s second floor, formerly occupied by the brand’s office, features the concept which is already on show in Paris and London.
The first level, which carries the bag collection, as well as a display dedicated to custom jewelry, shows a clean, rational look enhanced by the concrete floor enriched with mounted semiprecious and precious colorful stones and a glass ceiling.
A concrete curved staircase leads to the second story, housing both the ready-to-wear and footwear ranges. Here, the floor is made of marble in different shades creating a parquet-like effect, while walls are finished with a plaster technique.
Special site specific interior designs, such as chairs, lamps and trays, by Danish artist FOS pepper the boutique.
To celebrate the reopening, Céline creative director Phoebe Philo developed special editions of the brand’s Tri-Fold and Mini Belts designs, coming in musk green leather and red crocodile, respectively.
