What is a concept Store?
A Concept Store is a commercial space that offers creative and inspiring proposals. These multi-brand stores, which have been booming in recent years, are places where art, culture and commerce fuse without any established rules.

A solid proposal to make a stance against impersonal retail
The Concept Stores are the answer to the invasion of the big retail chains.
These exclusive and personal spaces dictate the shopping experience of the XXI century. These places are created to entertain while shopping.
Inspiring spaces where decoration is a key factor
A unique and personal decoration is a key piece in this type of establishment. It is the common tread that helps spread the message and live the experience.
They are very exclusive stores based on a very specific lifestyle proposal that is transmitted through the design of the establishment, its particular selection and atmosphere.

Concept Stores you should know
Scattered around the world, these avant-garde beacons have swept cities like Paris, Milan and London, and are setting trends in the evolution of retail in recent years.
Their clients want to be surprised by products they didn’t even know existed. As Coco Chanel said: “La moda no es algo que existe solo en los vestidos. “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”.
Here are the Concept Stores you can’t miss. Our recommendations:
Dover Street Market - London
The global image of Dover Street Market is that an ordered chaos. In which totally opposite fashion concepts work perfectly in the context of the establishment. Furthermore, it is the brands themselves that must present a concept and develop it in the provided space.
L'Eclaireur - Paris
At L’Eclaireur, the most avant-garde clothing, design objects and jewels are displayed alongside the works of art of the most underground artists of the moment.
Everything is arranged in a way that when you cross the door of their stores you will feel that you’re in a unique place that offers an eclectic and visionary proposal.
Casa Cavia - Buenos Aires

Located in a 1920 mansion in the emblematic neighbourhood of Palermo Chico, this concept store is a hedonist space where everything is designed so that books, flowers, perfumes and gastronomy are enjoyed just as if the were works of art.
La Comercial - Barcelona
La Comercial is a concept of 5 stores. In an innovative environment and with a very careful selection of products, it offers a differentiated experience, which makes customers feel at ease and where they can find what they like.
Its proposal includes a wide but careful selection of international men’s and women’s fashion brands, home accessories, fragrances and lifestyle.
It is a concept store, but with the added change of location that leads the costumer to move through the different stores, through pedestrian streets until finding the right product, at Rec and Bonaire street, in El Born neighbourhood.
This format, has the advantage that each space can be designed in a coherent way to the concept and the products that are sold, and with the added value of being able to offer a more personalized attention.
