The world of fashion isn't simply made up of beautiful clothes and runway models. Synonymous with the identity of the fashion house is the design of the building it resides in and the look of its interior. "Fashion Retail" examines the influence of architecture and interior design in the creation and marketing of high fashion.
When it comes to architecture and design, one area in which there has been a huge amount of popular interest is that of interiors. Yet, surprisingly little has been published in the area of fashion, despite the fact that today many top fashion houses are choosing to collaborate with leading architects and designers, with the aim of creating a unique brand. From unique boutique--chic to department stores, this book showcases around 30 of the most successful and inspiring collaborations around the world. The breath--taking results are laid out over more than 300 full colour photographs, which are accompanied by simple captions. Cases studies include: Prada, Stella McCartney, Hermes, Emporio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Paul Smith, Jill Sander, Issey Miyake, Dolce and Gabbana, Martine Sitbon, Fendi, Oki--ni, Missoni,Gianfranco Ferre, Comme des Garcons, Nicole Farhi, Marni, Harvey Nichols, Chloe, Selfridges, Alexander McQueen, Marks and Spencer
