On a recent trip to Shanghai we passed by the newest retail outlet by Singapore’s Surrender. Located inside the new Twelve at Hengshan luxury boutique hotel by Starwood, SALON sets new standards in high-end menswear shopping, both in terms of selection and in terms of interior. Of course we are used to seeing incredible build-outs by Surrender, but SALON is definitely once again very impressive. From custom vitrines and racks, to the wooden walls and the chimney which have been flown in from Versailles, France. The midsize boutique is a real eye-catcher. Swiss architect Mario Botta, best known for his work on the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, has created most of the hotel and SALON perfectly integrates itself into the setting, while still being very unique. Chandeliers, massive bouquets of flowers, beautiful carpets, and of course the outstanding selection of brands round up the experience.
