Period Georgian interiors meet contemporary fittings in Stella McCartney’s first London store, designed by Universal Design Studio, which opens tomorrow on Bruton Street. The Grade II listed building, formerly the Lefevre Gallery, develops the ‘nature abstracted’ theme of the New York store, also by Universal. It comprises McCartney’s UK headquarters as well as a retail environment. The latter includes a perfume room – which will sell McCartney’s perfume with packaging and graphics by Made Thought when it launches later this year (DW 3 April) – a bespoke tailoring service, dedicated VIP area and garden. Contemporary furniture and fittings are juxtaposed with hand-made wallpaper and hand-printed fabric walls. The store also features bespoke tiles, as seen in the New York shop, by Barber Osgerby.
