Hosker Moore & Kent has been appointed to redesign the third floor of Paris department store Galeries Lafayette.

Details about the project for the upmarket store are still under wraps, but departments to be refurbished include womenswear, lingerie, outerwear, youthwear and leisurewear, as well as a restaurant, champagne bar, beauty spa and concession shopfitting.

The project is being led at Hosker Moore & Kent by partner Peter Kent and design director Christian Papa.

Galeries Lafayette offers designer clothing brands, as well as restaurants and cafés.

The company bought rival department store Nouvelles Galeries in 1992 and DIY chain Bazar de l’Hotel de Ville. It also set up three divisions in 1994: department stores, speciality stores and LaSer services.

Hosker Moore & Kent’s work for London’s Selfridges store is entering its final phase. Interiors for two lingerie department divisions, Contemporary, and Sleep and Relax, and the hosiery department, called Open Legroom, open next month.

Hosker Moore & Kent has created Selfridges’ fashion accessories, nightwear and swimwear concessions. The former includes the installation of a new mezzanine restaurant.
