Wonderland checks out the über sleek Christian Lacroix Maison concept store in a former printing shop in Saint Sulpice, Paris – a true lesson in contemporary Parisian chic.
Oozing Parisian cool, the building’s original exposed brick and distressed plasterboard walls play home to clothing hung from simple, black metal-framed railings alongside jewellery and sunglasses spilling from old-fashioned drawer units. Vintage home accessories from the Lacroix archive, scented candles by Welton and stationary manufactured by Libretto are also presented on minimalist black shelves, allowing the three standout pieces of furniture, a collaboration between Lacroix creative direction Sacha Walckhoff and Brazilian designer Rodrigo Almeida, to take centre stage.
The Christian Lacroix concept store is located at 2-4 Place Saint Sulpice, 75006, Paris.
