Our project for Parah’s boutiques focuses on the brand’s identity, such as exclusivity, luxury and femininity. The colour palette, the materials and the new system of furnishings distinguish the brand giving the right communication support to the products – donating to the stores a sophisticated and welcoming allure, suitable for a contemporary customer-experience. The structural and decorative elements dialogue and adapt to the promotion as well as to the sale.
The concept is inspired by international fashion and plays with contrasts: each hot material is opposed to a cold one. In a balancing act where contemporaneity is the key element, furniture and accessories find a place naturally. The prestigious locations and the reduced size of the venues invite to play with the idea of a treasure chest – as if the boutique was the jewel box and the swimsuits the jewels. Each element strives to enhance the exclusive character of this historical manufacture.
What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
In a balancing act where contemporaneity has a key role to play in, furnishings and accessories have been created to exalt the user’s sensorial experience. The materials have been chosen by playing with contrasts: a cold material as opposed to each hot material. The fabric on the walls is opposed to the horizontal displays in Silipol, a stone compound made of porphyry, granite and fine-grained marble bound by high-resistance white concrete. The material – with an exceptional stained chromatic effect – is cold, but it is characterized by a pleasant velvety and porous hand, which stimulates the touch.
The muffled environment presents an intimate and reserved allure, suitable for the product category for sale. The type of fabric ensures that the venue has a sophisticated appeal while its pink shade is a reference to the colour of bare skin. This way, the shopping experience recalls a feeling of naturalness and calm.
