paris: aesop store opening

© aesop / photography: louis baquiast - supersleek shop interior australian cosmetics brand aesop continues to open rather stunning stores, the latest being in paris' boutique-infested st.-honoré area. the brand's second outlet in the french capital is housed in an 18th-century building and boasts a striking interior with unfinished wood planks protruding from the wall. a collab design of melbourne-based practice march studio and aesop owner dennis paphitis, it's inspired by the parquet floors they encountered all over town. mind you, the ash wood used is sourced from sustainable forests in aesop's home country. the new shop stocks the brand's entire cosmetics collection. location: 256 rue st.-honoré [st.-honoré].
