July 4 in Paris saw the unveiling of the new flagship store for Repossi. The store, designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas, is found on Place Vendome and divided into three spaces, each with a contextual purpose.
The ground floor serves as an extension of the street and provides a service similar to the outside pace: fast.
Upon entering the first floor, the area transforms into a gallery. Here is where you can take your time to peruse the beautiful collection of Repossi on display. It’s meant for slow meandering and wandering.
Lastly, in the basement is the resemblance of a salon, an intimate destination for clients to receive customized service with the utmost patience. The entirety of the store serves as a reflection of the various styles people are accustomed to. It adheres to each client’s preference with care.
Gaia Repossi with Delphine Arnault and Alberto Repossi hosted an opening evening last week with select guests including Carine Roitfeld, David Sims, Isabelle Huppert, Marie-Amélie Sauvé, and Tim Blanks.
