Peter Marino has a strong attachment to luxury Interiors, adding a terrific and dramatic stamp on flagship stores for luxury fashion brands such as Channel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Fendi. Peter Marino has nearly redefined luxury shopping as we know it. His Interiors has a wide range of glamorous projects! Find here, in Design Contract, the TOP 10 store design projects of this dramatic and out of the box interior designer.
CHANEL FLAGSHIP – LONDON
London is one of the planet’s leading shopping destinations, and with that perspective the fashion brand synonymous to Parisian chic has pulled out all the stops for a new flagship store on new Bond Street, one of the city’s most prestigious addresses. We’re obviously talking Chanel’s major retail statement, one that sees the full spectrum of the brand’s luxury collections showcased. It’s structured around an atrium at the core of the building and features an interior that combines a lavish mix of materials such as soft gold and bronze with reflective glass, marble and lacquer. Different textures are subtly put in contrast while at the same being captured in a modern architectural scheme. Adding another sophisticated layer are various specially commissioned artworks and contemporary and antique furniture pieces.
CHANEL STORE – CALIFORNIA
This project features the complete range of Chanel products, with dedicated spaces to ready to wear, accessories and shoes. Some of the salons are adorned with hand-made gold woven material designed especially for the boutique.
CHANEL STORE – GERMANY
Featuring a sumptuous and sophisticated palette in soft tones, panelled walls are paired with shiny marble floors. Displays and cabinets have been made from dark wood and glass, while the brand’s signature tweed fabric has been used to clad sofas and create carpets. The new Chanel store carries select pieces of the ready-to-wear collection, in addition to bags, shoes, jewellery + watches and sunglasses.
DIOR FLAGSHIP – CHINA
The interior design takes cues from the Dior flagship store on Avenue Montaigne in Paris and is once again signed by Peter Marino, the New York City-based architect with the majority of the brand’s stores worldwide under his belt. Many of the design elements of the aforementioned ‘mother flagship’ have been reinterpreted into a string of luxurious yet contemporary backdrops for Dior’s elaborate women’s collection. To boost the sense of exclusivity even further, Marino was asked to handpick a number of art pieces and furnishings that would be complementary to the distinct design codes of the fashion house.
DIOR FLAGSHIP – SOUTH KOREA
The store interior is an equally dramatic affair and combines understated lines with cues from the brand’s headquarters on leafy avenue Montaigne in Paris. The building comprises of six floors, all connected by a dramatic spiral staircase of glass and steel. The basement section is home to the Dior Homme collections.
DIOR FLAGSHIP – JAPAN
Peter Marino – whose luxury fashion client list includes Louis Vuitton, Armani and Chanel – hasn’t touched the facades but redesigned the internal spaces as a “modernised” version of Dior’s worldwide flagship on Avenue Montaigne in Paris. “The boutique embodies a lofty, contemporary atmosphere, while still maintaining the feminine and glamorous aesthetic that reflects the traditional elegance of the house of Dior,” said a statement from the brand.
DIOR STORE – NETHERLANDS
The aesthetic is inspired by the brand’s iconic flagship store on Avenue Montaigne in Paris and oozes the vibe of a luxurious boudoir. It’s an oasis of pristine white, captured in custom-made moulded fixtures and panelling, and is furnished with a variety of matching display counters.
DIOR STORE – MEXICO
Modeled after the brand’s flagship store on swanky Avenue Montaigne in Paris – also designed by Marino – shoppers are immersed in a world of luxury, articulated in modern design codes and using an array of noble materials, sophisticated lighting, and last but not least, cherry-picked furnishings and art, such as the clover-shaped bench by designer Christopher Schanck and a video wall by visual artist Yoram Mevorach Oyoram.
DIOR STORE – NEW YORK CITY
Situated on the ground floor of a late 19th-century building, this Dior store features an interior design by leading this amazing architect. The retail setting may take glamorous cues from the brand’s iconic mothership on Avenue Montaigne in Paris, but retains much of the building’s original elements, albeit luxed up and adapted to Marino’s highly modern design scheme.
LOUIS VUITTON – FRANCE
This Louis Vuitton store aims to provide shoppers with an immersive retail experience that sets it apart from ‘regular’ Louis Vuitton stores. This is quite evident through the meticulously conceptualised interior which oozes the vibe of a sophisticated Parisian apartment.
