On the eve of the launch of Hedi Slimane’s first collection since joining Céline earlier this year, the house has opened a new flagship store in Miami.
Located at 154 NE 41st St in the Miami Design District, the space’s two floors span across 5,242 square feet, with the ground floor serving as more of an exhibition space and the upper level as a space containing the house’s shoe and ready-to-wear collections. Designed by Swiss architect Valerio Olgiati, the space is mostly made of pale blue and white marble, known as Brazilian pinta verde, with the facade, floors, walls, and ceilings all exuding the ethereal and soothing tones of the stone. Concrete pillars located on the ground floor connect the building to its foundation. A staircase covered by an impressive pyramidal construct leads the ground floor to the second floor.
The Miami store is the house’s third retail location in the U.S., following locations in New York and Beverly Hills, and The Impression is curious has to whether this new store is a sign of things to come.
