The boutique takes inspiration from Giorgio de Chirico's Presente e passato (1936) and Piazza d'Italia con statua (1937), yet still manages to maintain that contemporary look native to the brand. White marble and bricks and stainless steel accents are to be found in the space, and a raw feel is punctuated by copper tubes and bottles.
