Balenciaga ‘s new 4,000 square-foot flagship at 620 Madison Avenue at the southwest corner of 59th Street in Manhattan represents creative director Demna Gvasalia‘s urban retail concept, which has an industrial spirit with touches of metal, concrete, and shades of gray. The public domain concept features a mix of elements from the metropolitan exterior design and original artwork is apparent. Wraparound screens play videos of different types of skies.

Hero products from the runway are displayed on hyper-realistic mannequins for maximum impact. Across one wall, the men’s and women’s shoe area runs the gamut of footwear. The Balenciaga logo is embossed across the gray carpeting. Throughout the unit, seating is upholstered with public transportation patterns, and benches resemble those in subway stations or parks. A piece by artist Tobias Spichtig is displayed at the flagship. Spichtig made the sculptures by dipping archival Balenciaga garments in resin and pulling them into expressive positions.
