Fashion brand Acne Studios has opened a "monolithic" store on Paris' Rue Saint Honoré, designed in collaboration with architecture studio Arquitectura-G.
After a comprehensive renovation, the 219 rue Saint-Honoré store in Paris opens in June 2022. Occupying a corner position on one of Paris’s most storied streets, the new space adheres to the brand’s global store ethos, where each location interprets the Acne Studios design language in an individual way. In this case, it channels both the classic elegance of Paris and the counter-cultural currents that infuse the Stockholm-based brand.
Designed by Arquitectura-G, the 385m2 space is composed in Saint Maximin stone, extending the exterior façade to the interior of the store. A pale, golden-beige limestone sourced from a nearby French quarry, Saint Maximin is synonymous with Paris, having been used extensively in the construction of the city. The stone has been used to clad the walls, floors, and columns, to impressive infrastructure-like effect.
