In collaborating with Wood-Skin, Maison Margiela has opened a new flagship store in Milan. Overall, the two-story space is noticeably open and bright, bearing a clean, whitewashed aesthetic. While the ground floor calls home to womenswear and accessories, the first floor is then designated for Margiela’s “Artisanal” haute couture line and its shoes.

The new shop is located within Milan’s historical center, blending key elements of modernistic design with classical architectural components. The floors bear a mixture of concrete and tiled techniques, while much of the walls are mirrored, and curtains have been placed strategically throughout to account for secondary door options.

Not NYC, not LA.
