Storefronts are the first thing you see. It might even be the first time you have seen that brand, and your first impression of them is their storefront. It’s like when you walk into a mall for the first time. Which store do you choose to go into first and why? Because the logo, visuals, or even the colors caught your attention. You couldn’t help but think, “That store looks so cool! I have to see what’s inside.” Of course luxury brands have free standing stores, and collaborate with architects to design their buildings. But the exteriors of these buildings also have to reflect the brand itself. It gives the pedestrian or the driver an insight as to what the brand is and what they have to offer. Here are some of the best luxury storefronts:
Gucci – Shanghai
Fendi – Hong Kong
Chanel – Beverly Hills
Louis Vuitton – Shezhen
Prada – Tokyo
Burberry – Chicago
I don’t know about anyone else, but I treat my dogs as if they were my kids. I don’t like to leave home alone for too long. I buy them clothes and make sure they get their bathes. Their like kids! And the need (more like want) to pamper your dog is continuously growing. Free People recently released The Pet Project where dog owners can purchase beds, collars, harnesses, leashes and tags for their cat or dog. I just can’t get over the cuteness! I’m just dying for the studded harness.
Ellie Goulding teams up with ASOS to promote their #BestNightEver campaign. It’s all about finding that perfect outfit that fits your personal style for that holiday party you have to go to or just another night out on the town. Ellie Goulding brings her effortlessly chic boyish style to table and picks out her favorite pieces from the collection. In the interview with Ellie, she says her style inspirations is “everything from Patti Smith to Gwen Stefani, Courtney Love even.” I have been in love with Ellie since I first heard her song “Starry Eyed” back in 2009. Her debut album “Lights” was a dream, and she has since released her second album “Halcyon” which is even better than her first.
