Balenciaga recently unveiled its newly renovated shop at Greenbelt 5, Makati encapsulating the new creative vision of Balenciaga artistic director Demna Gvasalia.
The store houses women’s accessories, along with footwear and eyewear.
The interior design blends contrasting textures that speak of the sophistication of haute couture together with industrial materials of the contemporary.
High-gloss rosewood, used for walls and display tables, are laid alongside concrete, cast aluminium, and glass.
Seating combines industry and luxury, framing tufted leather with Brutalist concrete in a game of contrasts and collage.
Mirrored panels add depth and alter perceptions: the layered fragments reflect multiple views.
The whole is played out in a restricted palette of grays, of stone and metal, with a flash of emerald-green mirrored glass. The result is a dynamic space, disrupting the conventional language of luxury retail.
BALENCIAGA is at the ground floor, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center Makati
and at Unit 105, 8 ROCKWELL, Hidalgo Drive, Rockwell Center, Makati
