When I was in London in October I was in awe of what the city had to offer not only with it’s architecture and history but with its dining, night life and retail experiences.
The retail design and aesthetic varied widely from the “I don’t give a damn” which is charming and cool in it’s own right to high design. I wanted to share the Kirk Originals flagship store with you because it is a perfect fit for London’s varied design aesthetic and unique to anything I’ve seen in Canada.
It’s eye catching facade is intriguing and uncomfortable at the same time, you can’t help but walk up to it. I love the contrast created between the interior and the facade which allows the “eyes” to pop out. The interior eye glass display is also very cool, following the same aesthetic of high contrast with white sculptural product display on a matte black wall. For every pair of glasses there is a pair of eyes to match which are painted so beautifully you can’t help but stare back at them. For me personally this is installation art selling a product and a fat big success!
