The department store is reinventing itself at the Champs-Elysées...
At 60 avenue des Champs-Elysees, Galeries Lafayette install their brand new address on 6500m2, in an old building of the 30s art deco style.
A hybrid store on 4 floors, mixing the must of fashion, lifestyle and food, orchestrated by the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels. A first project in the world of retail for the founder of the studio BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), signed by a set of indoor and outdoor spaces, opening on top of each other. Immersive entrance tunnel, glass boxes suspended under the cupola, staircase podium ... if he kept the historic heart of the building, the architect was keen to add new elements to amplify its character.
Within the department store, mixed spaces and multi-categories offering a mix of essential brands and young designers, limited editions, unpublished labels and special collaborations.
As for food, the place offers a delicatessen led by Julien Pham, the café Lemon imagined by Jacquemus and the restaurant L'oursin (to be discovered from next June).
A plural experience, to discover today.
