Versace opens new flagship store in SoHo, New York


Versace has opened up a new concept store in SoHo, New York, which is the brainchild of Donatella Versace and English architect Jamie Fobert. The building spanning to 1,785-square-foot itself is reminiscent of a fashion show runway, and has been described as opening “onto a long corridor lined with six white and gold rotating panels”. The mosaic flooring make you feel like you are in an 800BC Roman basilica with a modern touch of “contrasting wavy plexiglass panels hanging from above”.
