One of the largest MB´s boutiques worldwide
It will not be an ordinary boutique, Manolo Blahnik opened in Saks Fifth Avenue one of its largest boutiques. The first sneak peek how this totally unique store should look like, had appeared in a book called Fleeting Gestures and Obsessions published by Manolo Blahnik. The mere sketch of the store design suggests that it will be one of the most elaborate concepts.
Manolo Blahnik store will be located on the eighth floor of the shopping mall and will be covering an area about 760 square feet. It will be divided into two rooms, on whose form has participated designers of both famous brands.
The first of the store room represents a woman's boudoir enveloped by walls and walls of shoes with a large antique glass chandelier. Custom metal and mother-of-pearl screens transition customers from the boudoir into the sitting room with a Venetian glass-mirrored focal wall. Simply, the boutique is a modern take on traditional residential design; the use of moldings and antique chandeliers is offset by textural plaster and quirky custom furniture.
