Hermès celebrates the opening of its new store at Wynn Palace Mall, in Cotai. The Parisian house’s fourth address in Macau totals 267 square metres of sales area. RDAI, the Parisian architectural agency under the artistic direction of Denis Montel, has been responsible for the design and creation of the space, as for all Hermès stores worldwide.
The monochrome angled façade in warm dark brown contrasts with Wynn Palace’s rich setting and catches the light. Two large show windows are inscribed as suspended boxes giving lightness.
Past each one of the store’s two doors, visitors are greeted by Hermès Ex-Libris emblem on the floor, the iconic “Grecques” lights specially designed for Hermès and a combination of warm and soft colour tones from the matt oak wood floor, beige silk and brick fabric walls as well as a burnt orange carpet. Hermès feminine silk and fashion jewellery are in the centre of this first area surrounded by Art de Vivre and leather bags and small leather goods. To the left and back of the store is the men’s universe and, to the right, the women’s universe, both hosting ready-to-wear, shoes, belts, hats and other accessories. Between these two universes are the watches and jewellery space and the equestrian and perfume collections which complete the discovery.
A unique line of seating titled “Shanghai” exclusively designed by RDAI for Hermès includes benches in caramel leather for the women and men’s areas providing customers with the upmost comfort. The constant requirement for the finest quality has always been the quest of Hermès.
