Located at 146 NE 41st St, the store reflects the house’s new design concept, as envisioned by Sarah Burton, creative director, and architect Smiljan Radic. Expect to find the outside world inside. Woods like oak and walnut in dark and light shades bring warmth to the space’s walls and floors, while glass cylinders reflect light, bringing weightlessness to the space. Keep an eye out for the cotton-crete around the store, a new invention designed specifically for the space that births papier mâché made from cotton.
The store’s design is a perfect blend of nature and architecture with elements of contemporary and traditional seamlessly fused together as you would expect from the house of McQueen.
