The interior design dons the brand’s newest retail design codes, captured by natural stone flooring and shelving, marble displays, and sleek steel clothing racks on the ground floor, and this forms the backdrop for its coveted bag collection and small leather goods. Inside, the understatement continues, captured by clean lines and the use of natural materials. Walls and ceiling a dipped in a pristine white hue, paired with terrazzo flooring. Against a budding trend of luxury boutique closures – due to fewer swashbuckling mainland Chinese shoppers and soaring rents – French label Céline is expanding its footprint in Hong Kong by opening a sixth store at the prestigious IFC Mall in central. Blending the delicate ornaments of the 19th century Neo-Renaissance palace with state-of-the art interior features, the multi-brand store evokes an elegant atmosphere with a private-home feel.
