Saks Fifth Avenue flagship to open Christian Louboutin Shoe Salon
June 24, 2013: The famed retail store, Saks Fifth Avenue, has announced its plans to enhance the New York store’s 10022-SHOE salon even further with another win for the flagship, Christian Louboutin’s first in-store shoe salon in the US.
Christian Louboutin, together with New York based architectural and product design company, 212box, worked to create an original interior design that compliments the unique character of the space and its environs while delivering a dynamic experience for the customer.
While preserving the brand’s distinct interior elements, such as the arched niche walls and signature red carpet, new exciting additions to the shop’s decor include hand carved Burma teak wooden tiles, and a large storefront window. Polished stainless steel display tables and red sand stone, chosen for their prized fossil creatures by Christian Louboutin himself in Morocco, are complimented by banquettes covered in colorful geometric patterns and of course, an array of exquisite shoes. At 1641 square feet, the boutique will be one of the largest for Louboutin worldwide as well as a new concept with a great mix of handbags, shoes and specialty products.
