A new Milan fashion Boutique that will worth your visit this Summer, had an exclusive exhibition at Milan Design Week 2015 and besides that what is better than picking up a delicious gelatto at Via Sant’Andrea? Milan Design Agenda introduces you, Maison Margiela flagship store, one of the few fashion flagship stores that worth your visit this Summer!
Milan Design Week 2015 wasn’t a coincidence for those who attended to this international furniture design show and had the opportunity to see Maison Margiela premiere, that opened its latest boutique on Via Sant’Andrea in collaboration with Wood-Skin – a savvy Milanese company that redefines material possibilities!
With Milan’s historical centre as its backdrop, the whitewashed store marries clean, modernistic lines with classical architectural elements and even a little garden enclave. Stretching over 300 sq m, the impressive space’s ground floor is reserved for womenswear and accessories, while the first floor is dedicated to the house’s ‘Artisanal’ haute couture line and shoes.

Transporting the elegance of Paris’ grand boulevards to the Italian city, Haussmannian ceilings and moulded cornices are juxtaposed with rough concrete surfaces, mirrored walls and tiled floors. The latter span much of the store and even climb the walls, in the form of Wood-Skin’s malleable tiled curtain.
These details all allude to the deconstructed shapes and silhouettes that Maison Margiela is best known for, and also offer evidence that John Galliano’s recent appointment will safeguard the daring aspects of this fashion house’s design ethos going forward.
