Fans of the luxury brand Gucci would be happy to know that it just opened a new boutique in Makati City. Situated in Greenbelt 4 along Makati Avenue, the space spans over 7,475 square feet and carries a wide selection of ready-to-wear, handbags, travel bags, shoes, belts, silks, eyewear, small leather goods, jewelry and watches.
Shoppers will be warmly welcomed by a restored façade, all in marble, and distinguished by a multi-hued geometrical motif whose veining elegantly frames the luxury house’s logo. An LED screen video wall, showcasing Gucci’s latest campaigns, adds a sense of movement to the exterior. The interiors, meanwhile, is equally refined. The marble flooring echoes the façade through its discreet palette and geometric shapes, drawing inspiration from designs found across antique historic buildings.
The hand-painted wood flooring features decorative motifs that reference details from Gucci’s collections while soft rich fabrics in lighter tones adorn the walls, harmoniously complementing the ivory boiserie, which acts as a delicate backdrop to the items on display. The use of clean lines and an understated palette adds to the environment’s polished and subtle charm.
Envisioned to make visitors feel at home, the store is framed with built-in displays reminiscent of walk-in closets while newly designed racks inspired by classic brass designs gracefully accommodate diverse product categories. Velvet armchairs and sofas, and shaggy wool monochrome rugs are placed throughout to create intimate corners. The aesthetic dialogue between elements drawn from different places and eras speaks to the Gucci core narrative, resulting in a space that is sophisticated and surprising at the same time.
As part of Gucci’s commitment to implement and enhance eco-friendly initiatives and energy-efficient technologies in its stores worldwide, the new boutique is designed using LED guidelines and principles; and monitor and promote energy efficiency.
