Kenzo unveils Paris flagship store

Designer clothing label Kenzo has unveiled its flagship store in Paris, with interiors by Italian group Vudafieri Partners and a restaurant, Kong, created by French designer Philippe Starck. A glass dome perches on top of the building and interiors take their cue from city centre gardens, with overflowing plants and a footbridge. The first floor women’s ready-to-wear department features giant flower wall murals and carpets with wave designs. A staircase is highlighted with cascading lights and materials like white Italian stone predominate. Starck’s Kong restaurant is situated on the fifth and sixth floor and the store also has an Andrée Putman-designed Lô Sushi in the basement.
