"The concept is an extension and amalgamation of the existing. Beginning from the faÃ§ade, the herringbone - an in-store element was for the first time taken outside. The brand mascot buffers the space right on the top. The huge window display was bifurcated to covey more to the customer. The VM takes a holistic approach with mannequin presentations by the styling elements for a better connect with the customer,â€ said Anuraag Singhal, Head - VM, House of Allen Solly.
The elaborated nesting table greets the customer. Each sub brand was given a shop-in- shop allocation, while the brand's signature visual language binds them as a single identity.
"VM played a huge role in establishing the brand's identity. From the clip on graphics on the wall to the props displayed connected, while the flooring distinguished each sub-brand. Hybrid expertise of styling played an important role while establishing the brand outlook. Each section has story narrating high points which talks about the persona of the sub- brands,â€ added Singhal.
The detailing can be seen from the wooden tiles to the wooden fixtures with corian tops and props which compliments the sections. "The faÃ§ade is done with an extremely new material - Fundermax. The store flooring pattern, which is very common British texture, has been adopted on the facade surface,â€ Singhal informed.
