Take inspiration from some of the retail elite – yes, you can bring their ideas into your shop. Here’s how:
Pringle of Scotland – Mayfair, London
- Shades of beige in the fittings are up to the minute, yet won’t date over time
- Minimal racks are accompanied by bright lighting, both designed to make the garments stand out.
- Why not dress a mannequin head to toe in one colour to make your customers take notice?
Azzedine Alaïa – Paris
- An orchid on the counter is an instant and aromatic mood booster in your shop
- The cube pyramid on the wall is easy to replicate, but a very effective way to display accessories
- If you have enough space, a mannequin is much more effective when it is not too close to the clothing racks, allowing its outfit to shine.
Les Hommes – Porta Nuova, Milan
- This is all about texture – marble and concrete, mirror and metal give the shop an intriguing atmosphere
- Grey, the alternative neutral to beige, is perfect for masculine surroundings
- In large stores, ‘interrupters’ like the dark glass cubes here, are good for showcasing accessories
Dior – Manhattan, New York
- We are seeing seats in shops everywhere. It’s a great way to get people to stay a little longer in store, and also for the bored shopping companions to relax.
- See the hangers? Neither do we! Barely there deluxe metal hangers add to the ‘mid-air’ look of the clothes.
- The texture contrast is an easy steal – a big rug in the centre of your room, some metal racks and you are on your way.
