Milan-based designer Daniel del Core launched his Del Core fashion house in 2020, in the middle of the global pandemic, that didn’t hinder him to make a flying start. Originally from Germany, born to a German-Italian father and a German mother, Del Core relocated to Italy at a young age and never looked back. Following art, ceramics and sculpture studies, he continued an education in design at the Lombardian capital’s prestigious Istituto Europeo di Design and later on worked for esteemed fashion houses, such as Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, and Zuhair Murad. Since establishing his own maison, the womenswear designer is on a roll, and with a private investor in his pocket, the Del Core brand is also ambitiously raising its profile in the global retail arena.

The first Del Core boutique opened its doors at home base Milan one year ago, and is now followed by second standalone retail space on one of New York City‘s most sought after retail addresses—Madison Avenue. Occupying no less than 702 sqm. (7,556 sq.ft.) spread across three floors of retail space, a fourth and fifth dedicated to a showroom and press office for V.I.P. appointments, the Italianate/Greco townhouse was originally built by architect F.S. Barus, and altered in 1909 to fit a storefront extension, the boutique features an understated design by the designer himself. A new glass façade, including a full height glass door with marble handles, allow floods of daylight into the ground floor. It’s merely furnished with armchairs, clad in a beautiful fabric that mimics a weathered mossy rock, a rectangular black marble display table and matching smaller monolithic versions.

Here, Del Core‘s ready-to-wear is presented on suspended black steel clothing displays. The focal point of the ground floor is a totemic cylinder covered in black-lacquered wood at the far end which houses the boutique’s changing rooms which are lined and carpeted in pink velvet. A staircase leads up to a circular mezzanine where more apparel is presented. Up on the third floor, which is dedicated to Del Core‘s couture creations, the aesthetic changes to distinctly angular, featuring a backdrop of walls clad in green marble paired with ivory resin flooring. Furnishings merely comprise a massive set of drawers and a wardrobe entirely made of a mirror. Unsurprisingly, the changing room is a luxury suite, entirely in ivory, and a matching and sumptuous white marble bathroom. ©
