September 4th, 2015 by retail design blog

Antwerp’s retail landscape has fully regained Japanese luster with the arrival of an Issey Miyake boutique, the brand’s third European outpost after Paris and London. Situated in the historic heart of the city, the store occupies a lofty 300 sqm. [3,229 sq.ft.] ground floor unit of a listed 16th-century building, replete with a tranquil inner courtyard with soaring bamboo plants. in stark contrast with the ornate façade, the store interior intriguingly pairs sleek understatement with rough edges, provided by exposed brick walls in seemingly dereliction. Large windows allow in floods of daylight and give the store an airy feel, and bespoke furniture pieces, made in white concrete and sand blasted glass, add up to the contemporary vibe. a sophisticated lighting system has been designed by Zumtobel and subtly changes within the space according to the movements of the customers, creating a luminous ambiance. The new Issey Miyake store carries a rather complete collection of lines for both men and women, including Issey Miyake, Issey Miyake Men, Pleats Please Miyake, 132 5. Issey Miyake, Homme Plissé Issey Miyake, Cauliflower and Bao Bao Issey Miyake.
