SITTING ON A BOULEVARD KNOWN FOR HOSTING THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL, this boutique offers a luxurious setting befitting a superstar. Enlarging the space and reflecting an inviting aura of opulence, mirrors surround the ground floor and also connect to the staircase and lower level columns.
Making the space visible and welcoming from the outside, a curved facade draws in traffic via open shelving fixtures. Similar shelving replicates the same openness within the store’s inner circle. Connecting light boxes to open shelving on the facade curvature also draws attention from the sidewalk.
Adding an awards show-style, red carpet-worthy touch, recessed track lighting follows the curvature on the ground floor and is accentuated with an uplift cove housing a crystal rock chandelier.
