Remodeled from a bank building to retail space, the Melinda Gloss by Ciguë boutique boasts a stripped-down aesthetic that will surely appeal to its menswear clientele.

The second location in Paris for founders Rémi de Laquintane and Mathieu de Ménonville focuses on their craft. There are references to the brand’s origins and identity with audio-visual cues throughout the space; from the runway collection to a video installation by Thomas Dutter.

"We marked out the space with impromptu elements, intuitively on the spot, until we felt it worked," explained architect Adrian Hunfalway. The space boasts a chic industrial feel with aluminum accents and white backdrops. The Melinda Gloss by Ciguë boutique is a stimulating environment for consumers that is reflection of the designer’s understated creations. Stats for Exquisitely Basal Boutiques Trending: Older & Warm
