Monte Carlo, Monaco – Monegasque fashion house PHILIPP PLEIN celebrated the opening of its new boutique in Monte Carlo’s Centre Commercial Le Metropole, the luxury retail hub at the centre of the Principality. Based on an octagonal floor plan, the boutique exterior is composed almost entirely of transparent glass surfaces — every corner of the shop can be admired from the outside, with the glittering stainless steel and light fixtures inviting customers in-store. Four of the exterior glass surfaces serve as entrance doors allowing for maximum visitor flow.
Men’s, women’s and kid’s clothing and accessories are presented in designated areas across the octagonal floor plan, the different areas highlighted by subtle changes in lighting and materials.
Discerning customers are able to walk through the boutique in a seamless flow of lights, colours and textures to appreciate the artistic continuity between the different collections. Polished stainless steel and white marble designate the women’s collection, for menswear black marble is used while kids collections are set against white marble and satin brass. The undisputed icon of the brand, a giant skull fashioned in Crystallized ™ – Swarovski Elements, is a bold centrepiece linking the Monte Carlo boutique with other PHILIPP PLEIN stores worldwide.
