Hermès unveils new Beijing flagship

French Maison Hermès has unveiled a newly transformed flagship store in Beijing’s business district, in the China World Trade Centre. 

The ‘eye-catching façade that beckons from afar’, covers two floors and more than 900 sq m. The 11m-high storefront is said to be ‘a technical feat of engineering and craftsmanship’ cast in undulating, engraved double-glass panels, that ‘evoke a forest of bamboo’.

The store can be accessed both from inside the mall and the street and features the complete Hermès line-up across women’s and men’s fashion, accessories, beauty and home collections.

The interior was created by Parisian architecture agency RDAI as an ‘open plan and fluid layout, awash with a feeling of lightness and tranquillity’. It features ‘nuanced pastels and mineral hues, like celadon and gold, of traditional etchings and paintings’. The murals on the first floor were painted on Chinese wild silk; and the woven bamboo on the second floor was also locally sourced. There are also bespoke design details ‘realised via a tremendous collaborative process with local craftsmen, such as the nuanced terrazzo floors (made of Chinese stone and pebble aggregate), the renowned Faubourg Saint-Honoré mosaics, hand-fashioned furnishings and cabinetry’. 

The first floor houses silks, perfumes and fashion jewellery, plus menswear. There’s also a men’s made-to-measure salon set off to the side for added privacy for higher-spending customers. 

A split staircase, which gives visitors a view of the two levels of the store, is backed by a 3D plaster wall that echoes the façade. It leads to up the larger second floor that houses leather goods, watches and jewellery, home collections and womenswear, plus a private VIP room. 

The Maison said that throughout the space, a “carefully curated selection of art illuminates the relationship between Hermès and China”. The two notable commissioned artworks, are an equestrian-inspired triptych by French artist Jean-Louis Sauvat that sits almost suspended from the wall above the staircase, and an ink drawing by Chinese artist Li Xin in the perfume area.

With a focus on local anchoring and sustainable natural materials, Hermès is developing its environmentally responsible culture through the renovation of its store in the heart of the China World mall in Beijing, which opened on 30 April.

Experimental Perfume Club Opens First Flagship in London

Let me start by saying I don’t see my job as work.

Emmanuelle Moeglin, perfumer & founder EPC

Rather, Emmanuelle Moeglin define it as her passion and my life. She has worked her entire career in perfumery. Her fascination for fragrances started at a very young age when she was collecting everything perfume. As a kid, she was fascinated by this poetic world. Her love for ingredients came later when she studied perfumery and spent time understanding the intricacy of creation.

Emmanuelle Moeglin started her journey at the perfumer’s school ISIPCA in France, where she learnt the science and secrets of fragrance creation. She then went onto travelling the world, collaborating with some of the most esteemed perfumers, working as a Fragrance Design Manager for brands such as L’Oreal and Puig in Paris, Barcelona and New York.

Since that time, Emmanuelle Moeglin had been thinking about bringing education and the art of perfumery to the general public. She was meeting so many people who loved and wore fragrances but knew very little about it. So EPC, a DIY-focused fragrance brand, was born, providing perfume lovers with relevant education and support to allow them to create their very own fragrance, all while learning what it takes to create a perfume.

Founded in 2016, since its inception, the Experimental Perfume Club has hosted visitors at its working lab space in East London, and has also established a brand presence in both Selfridges and Harvey Nichols department stores. the DIY-focused fragrance brand began with blending workshops before expanding into ready-made blendable scents and bespoke perfumery, has launched its first flagship location on 53 Monmouth Street within Seven Dials, London.

Providing a permanent space to produce classes and work in the lab, this seminal step for Experimental Perfume Club represents how much the industry has changed over the last decade, with burgeoning consumer interest in the behind-the-scenes of perfumery, appetite for hands-on experiences, wider acceptance of self-taught perfumers, and proliferated access to perfumery education. 

The store will also house the brand’s signature scent collection, created in-house by Moeglin. It’s described as ‘unique and minimalist’ Eau de Parfums that can be worn alone or used as building blocks to blend together for a personalised result.

Emmanuelle Moeglin, founder and perfumer at Experimental Perfume Club, commented: “Our ethos at EPC is to bring the art of perfumery to the general public, so having an inviting physical environment in a central part of London is crucial. Our new home and flagship in Seven Dials will allow us to grow and expand our educational and experience-led operations, amongst a like-minded and tight-knit brand community. We are thrilled to have the exposure to new audiences from this Monmouth Street location and are very excited to connect with more perfume lovers in this space”.

The lab-boutique will also stage both informative workshops and one-to-one appointments, as well as private groups and corporate events, as and when Covid restrictions allow, the company said.
