The architects took their inspiration from Lanvin’s archives and from different periods: in the image of Alber Elbaz’s collections, the store combines precious materials and more industrial elements. The new décor mixes parquet flooring, steel shelving, large mirrors and bold imagery.

The idea was to look as if the boutique had always been there. The effect is deliberately residential, even casual. To achieve this impression, a combination of materials was carefully selected by the house and developed by Clements to achieve an outstanding presentation.

  • Rough oak wood parquet and industrial-style concrete for the floor
  • Mouldings on the walls, oak panels with a distressed grey finish and white matt decoration
  • Specially designed tainted metal and glass free standing furniture
  • Antiques and chandeliers sourced at flea markets to give a unique atmosphere and final touch
  • Overall quality of materials to ensure longevity

Lanvin and Clements Retail have been working together for years. Technical knowledge is of course a major reason for this long partnership but the power of suggestion and solutions brought by Clements development team have also been great contributors to the confidence of Lanvin. Opening a new store has a huge impact on a brand’s image; this is why the choice of contractor is essential.

A boutique has to reflect the luxurious level of the clothes so every detail of the construction work is important and Clements Retail understand the stakes.
