The Italian fashion house Versace recently debuted its new concept flagship store in Beijing’s China World Mall. The store design focuses on the brand’s “commitment toward sustainability”, stating “There’s no bigger luxury than our future”. The store is bursting with gold and marble accents, in a nod to Versace’s recognisable aesthetic.
“The LEED-certified boutique has been created with the highest sustainability standards in mind,” said a statement released by Versace. “Dimmable lights with central control have been installed to ensure efficient use of energy over the course of the day.”
It is great to see such a large fashion house continuously creating a focus on sustainable lighting solutions in their store openings. An aspect that is sure to filter down to other retailers thus changing the norms for retail lighting in the future.
