Acne Studios Opens First Flagship Store in Beijing
Acne Studios opened their first brick-and-mortar flagship store in Beijing at the reputable Taikoo Li Sanlitun complex. Using much of the original architecture of straight lines and glass façade of the space, the in-house team at Acne Studios continued the open and minimal interior theme (emphasized with simple and organic-looking materials) designated at its other boutiques.
The white, high gloss, lacquered walls and the beige floor contrast signature stainless steel walls, rails, tables, and shelving. Additionally, the store’s open layout is anchored by large sculptural displays (made by British designer and long-time collaborator Max Lamb,) found in the front and the back of the store. Lamb also designed some custom rugs for the store, bringing a soft warmth to the space. For the opening of the store, the designer created a line of unique products for purchase in China only: featuring an exclusive down jacket based on the main collection design and small leather goods in beige with hidden lucky messages inside.
The new Acne store in Beijing is open now at N3-13, No.19 Sanlitun Road, Taikoo Li North Village, Chaoyang District, Beijing.
