Celine opened its first store with a new architectural direction on Collins St, Melbourne in September designed by creative director Hedi Slimane, the new store concept juxtaposes the finest natural materials, crafting a balanced and expansive sculptural interior.
Natural stones are complemented with reclaimed oak, concrete, polished stainless steel, brass and gold mirror in a refined twenty-first century brutalist context.
Specially designed furniture by Hedi Slimane plays a crucial role in the design, with sculptural typologies responding to the architecture. Site-specific artwork is another key component featuring contemporary artist Fay Ray.
With 250 sqm of retail space, the Collins St store features a full range of men’s and women’s ready to wear, as well as the haute parfumerie collection. ( not shown in these photographs).
