The two floors which combines 1300 square meters, aims to display effectively both the Menswear and Womenswear collections: clothing, shoes and accessories as well as the first fragrance John Richmond Perfume.

The distinctive tattoo design, sprayed on mirrors or inlayed on the floor in precious marbles, creates a continuous visual connection embodying the designer’s famous rock spirit and unveiling the industrial soul by being displayed in an unusual, high tech setting.
