Its racks and shelves are filled with designer pieces by Valentino, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney, and Paul Smith, to name a few.

Occasional colours are injected through enamel, brown diamonds, or semiprecious stones.

It also produces urban casual menswear, and we totally dig the store’s wood panel-inspired interiors.
