Giorgio Borruso Design was hired to design the Carlo Pazolini boutique in Milan located near the Duomo. The space is 4,150 square feet that formerly belonged to a McDonald’s. The main aim of the boutique is to display the brand’s shoes, however, the design approach is what is actually interesting.
Borruso wanted an artistic look that would display the relationship of shoes with feet, i.e. how shoes embrace the foot. Using felt material in collaboration with none other than Paola Lenti, he was able to make felt shaped into a leaf, the major part of his theme design. Another major attraction point is the combination of colors which are very vibrant and make a huge impact all the way outside the boutique through the massive 8 arches in the façade.
Theurel & Thomas is the first pâtisserie in Mexico specialized in French macarons, the most popular dessert of the French pastries. Anagrama, obviously branding pioneers, realized that in order to emphasize the unique value if such a brand is to focus on the product itself. In this case the product is a delightful French dessert known for its beautiful colors and simple shape.
White was their primary tool for design. It was the background and every detail of the shop, to act as a cushion to the lovely macarons. Due to the colorful macarons, any other color would have clashed and absorbed the attention. Just looking at this white space gives a heavenly feeling, personally I had to stop working on this post several times.

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has created the first store for 132 5. Issey Miyake.
‘132 5. Issey Miyake’, the newest label from Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake, draws on his previous ‘a piece of cloth’ project. The idea behind it is based on ideas of ‘regeneration and recreation’. The clothes are presented on five transparent torsos that are hung from the ceiling. Each one is accompanied by computer graphic images displaying the garment construction process shown on iPads installed throughout the store.
