Since the great success of the label’s capsule collection of glamorous dresses in 2009 , Ingie Chalhoub has been working on widespreading her brand. Multi-award winner, the fashion designer is not just a style ambassador, pioneer and designer, but is also a businesswoman who capitalizes on her industry expertise to continually drive Etoile Group, in which she is the CEO and Managing Director, to achieve new heights as the leading luxury lifestyle purveyor in the Middle East. It is important to notice that Ingie Chalhoub thoroughly deserves her tittle of « fashion icon » and pioneer, she has been pushing the boundaries of high fashion in the Middle-East for a long time now by opening the region’s first ever Chanel Boutique in Kuwait on 1983.
The store was designed by the “Architecture et Associes” studio led by Jean Christophe Poggioli and Pierre Beucler. Their expertise and exeptional crafstmanship knowledge certainly were an asset to the ambitious project imagined by Ingie Chalhoub. The space architecture is reminding the made-to-mesure Ingie Paris dresses. Therefore the visitors will be able to discover those creations in an intimate yet comfortable ambiance that characterizes the world’s most luxurious houses.
The different elements and materials used to design the store were precisely choosen to reflect the brand’s femine and elegant universe. The mother-of-pearl, being the symbol of Ingie Paris inspired the design of the walls which combines shimmering silver pearls panels with mirror partitions. To enhance in the best way possible the collections, the essential work of the architecure studio was to project more space in the store by playing on the lights reflection over the space. The white marble tiles surrounded by metal and iridescent circular rugs complements the flooring and accentuates the cool but sophisticated atmosphere inside the shop.
The store is divided into two spaces, one is dedicated to ready-to-wear and day wear collections all suspended on nickel racks facing the wall panels,while the second space is reserved to the cocktail and evening dress as well as the new collection of shoes.
To create a wholesome approach and experience the pieces of furniture reside at the center of the store. For the final touch, curved-shape fitting rooms were designed to be as comfortable and as spacious as possible. Personalized and luxurious, Ingie Paris Store offers a special moment to the customers.
