Manish Arora Opens Store in Paris

Manish Arora Opens Store in Paris

Manish Arora has decided after planting roots in Paris that his flagship store should be located there as well. With his mix of multi-color pieces and elaborate prints, Arora will feel at home on Rouget de’l’Isile

Here’s the full release:

The colorful and joyous love story between Manish Arora and Paris began in 2007 with momentous runway shows that, beyond business, aim at restoring optimism and lightness to the down-and-out fashion public.

Beyond the runways and the Fédération française de la Couture, du Prêt à Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode where he is a member, Paris has also become his second home, 10000 kilometers away from languid New Delhi and its incredible craftsmanship, an integral part of the brand. It was therefore natural for ManishArora to open his first flagship in Paris, after the presentation of his Spring-Summer 2015 collection.

In just a few seasons, the Indian designer has wooed a demanding public looking to distinguish itself. After the success of his Galeries Lafayette corner and of the Galerie Joyce pop-up shop in 2013, Manish Arora has decided to take this new step and welcome his clients into his own world.

Located at 5 rue Rouget-de-L’Isle, between the Tuileries garden and rue Saint-Honoré, in an area reputed for its exclusive addresses and a stone’s throw away from most Parisian palaces, the Manish Arora boutique is conceived as a natural extension to his Parisian home, with its colored glass panels, the pink and gold that sign all this collections, all distilled in-store on furniture, fittings and displays.

The store was imagined by the Milan-Paris based studio Riccardo Haiat (www.riccardohaiat.com), whose business focuses in the conception of boutiques, restaurants and apartments. The architect wanted to combine the strong and coloured univers of manish arora with a pure and elegant touch that well integrates the Parisian context of the rue de Rivoli.

With its two street-facing windows, and its 130 square meters, the boutique features dual spaces of beautiful volumes. Facing the street, there will be Manish Arora’s ready-to-wear, his accessories and selected pieces from his Indian by Manish Arora collection (until then exclusive to the Indian market), as well as a curated selection of his favorite items: Varanasi toys or artwork, small trinkets or unique pieces, temptations of the day or of a lifetime.

At the back, the space will be dedicated to exhibitions, showroom presentation and private events, in relation with the enchanted world of Manish Arora.

By combining retail and exhibition spaces, Manish Arora will fully inhabit this location, marking it fully as his Parisian headquarters.

Information :
Address : 5 rue Rouget-de-l’Isle 75001 paris
Open from monday to saturday :
monday 2pm-7pm
tuesday to saturday 11pm-7pm

The Enfants Riches Déprimés Hat is not for the price concious, but there’s an argument or some sort of platitude that art doesn’t have a price. Rita Ora seems to agree wearing this fetching Enfants Riches Déprimés Hat. Visit the site here.

twinkle-wenlanSister site SecondCityStyle.com has a good feature on this Fall trend (that really shouldn’t be so much of a trend but a stalwart in collections), over-sized knit sweaters. Right off the bat, I’m remembering the Twinkle by Wenlan fall collection of maybe five years that was rife with huge cable knit sweaters (and is still a major part of her Fall collections). But SCS’s feature delves a bit deeper. Head over there for more.

Another interesting sighting at the Teen Vogue event was Bailee Madison wearing a skirt by designer Ekaterina Kukhareva. A graduate of the famous Central St. Martin’s school in London, Kukhareva started her named collection in 2009 and has been a prolific dresser to young starlets since that time. Here’s a link to see more.

Wanted to point this out because Endless Rose is a flirty collection that has a bit of a different look. It’s skewed towards the early 20s set and this is reflected by many of the Hollywood actresses wearing the collection. The Endless Rose actress resume reads as follows:
Demi Lovato
Kerris Dorsey
Caroline D’Amore
Teyonah Parris
Bailie Madison…and now
Peyton List.

Not bad for a collection that started in 2012. For more info, visit: EndlessRose.com

According to Kevin Kane, the photographer, she caught his eye because she reminded him of Audrey Hepburn sans the flats. It’s arguable, but understandable.

Another recent shoot published on Papierdoll. This one featured models wearing basics from the likes of H&M. That coupled with very little make-up set the tone for a good fall foto story. View all the images here.
