More than ever, Paris is honing the interior design of its boutiques, focusing on the services of renowned architects. Who, here more than in any other fashion capital, must adjust their grandeur folly to a highly ranked environment.
For some seasons, luxury shops have been developed by big names in architecture. In 1885, Ernest Cognacq called on the most avant-garde architect of the time, Frantz Jourdain. The shop becomes, more than a place of sale, a jewel of dreams, where the brands sit their image, through a light, noble materials or a singular fitting room. “I want Bang & Olufsen in Versailles”, John Galliano had demanded for the realization of his first shop, rue Saint-Honoré. The inevitable Philippe Starck signed the rebirth of Baccarat in the mansion of Marie-Laure de Noailles. As for Patrick Jouin, he created the next Van Cleef & Arpels shop in Place Vendôme. A mythical place that concentrates all the difficulties. However, the architect must respect specifications that require the reconfiguration of facades as originally.
