B-Side by Wale London Store Opening

B-Side by Wale London Store Opening | Store Openings | Scoop.it

Given Wale Adeyemi’s impressive 18-year career history working for the likes of The Beckhams and as New Era’s Creative Director, it comes as no surprise that the designer’s latest endeavor is as fitting as his tenure at the seam. Recently opened at 58 Hanbury Street, Adeyemi’s namesake B-Side by Wale label unveils his completed inaugural flagship brick & mortar shop. The space — managed by B-Side’s Creative Art Director Angelo Carnielo — represents an amalgam of the various influences that have played a role in the label’s designs over the years as well as the elements that the collective is looking towards for the future. Continually influenced by everything from hip-hop, American culture, sports and British tailoring, the new store which resides near Brick Lane is located within the heart of the same culture that birthed much of its aesthetic.

love this - I know this has hurt alot of business models and lost many jobs, but  this is the new retail paradigm. first you dominate the market on cloud retail and then you come back to brick and mortar and build memorable retail experiences. Based on data from your clients.

Night Club as Science Lab to study people's perceptions

Night Club as Science Lab to study people's perceptions | Store Openings | Scoop.it
Man in a suit: Dr Beau Lotto, a neuroscientist from California, gathers data on how human perception works—from gender, race and power to dressing for a party
retail watch's insight:

Definitely a store opening to follow.....


This guy does incredible things with science and children. Now he plans on studying customers at their most intimate level: the night club. We ll keep you posted. Would you not want to go there?


"This is science as nightclub, theatre, but we will be getting real data from people’s experiences. It’s psychophysics—the measurement of perception. There will be experiments on attractiveness, how male and female perceptions of it differ, on racial perceptions, on the effects of power. I want people to walk out feeling differently about themselves and about other people." If all goes to plan, the first nightclub-lab will open for business in Lotto’s native California in 2013.

retail watch's curator insight, May 21, 2013 1:26 AM

Tesla motors. since 2007. Founded by 

"the car maker has reinvented both its product category and the way it is sold.

Consumer Reports magazine dubbed the Model S as the best car it has reviewed since 2007, with a rating of 99 out of 100. Unlike its fugly electric car competitors, the Tesla is sleek and desirable – it is about form and fashion as much as function, which is an Apple quality in itself."


The web site is amazing, the CEO blogs, the stores are sleek showrooms with cars ready for test drives in the shopping malls parking lot. The price is single. You design your car on the web. The sales people are as cool as can be in their polo shirts.


The store is open, heavily realiant on beautiful images, touch screens, pride in the beauty of car parts being displayed mid way between sculpture and prodcut information. 


Brava!!

Project: Penhaligon's

Penhaligon's redesigns Regent Street boutique
retail watch's insight:

I hope that this brand continues its tradition of very different store designs for different towns. This core design is the same as the first store in Asia, which opened last year in Singapore. For Regent Street, I hope there is more of a purely Hight Street touch.

My favorite is still the Rue St Honoré. Perfect for the place and small store.

Missoni Unveils New Flagship Concept

Missoni Unveils New Flagship Concept | Store Openings | Scoop.it
The boutique is a new concept conceived by Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola, who infused the store with a sophisticated, cozy atmosphere.
retail watch's insight:

Lots of nice things going on here, but where is an edge to surprise and engage the client to the brand?

For such a wonderful brand all about savoir faire and bold yet sophisticated design, this new concept feels already outdated.


Italy knows so well how to do contemporary design with flair. It has so often shown the way to daring technology designed to sexy perfection.


Just that touch would be needed here.


A technological edge interwoven into this cozy context.


This concept from Milan will be rolled out in Dubai, HK, New Delhi and Riyadh. I can just imagine how much the Indian luxury markets must appreciate this brand.
