The Avenue Montaigne stands out against its neighbours (it is flanked by many of the world’s most sophisticated fashion houses) because of its intriguing design. Raed Architects have transformed the store’s long hallway entrance into a pathway of metallic arches, providing a unique architectural experience. Inside the store, a large u-shaped skylight provides natural lighting, while metallic frames, 3.2 meters high are used as hangers for brands specially tailored to the space, including Ann Demeulemeester, Givenchy, Isabel Marant and much more.
