the marais area continues to be a magnet for cool stores, and the latest brand to arrive here is carhartt. opened last week, the store measures a spacious 120 sqm. [1,292 sq.ft.] and features an interior designed by laurent deroo. known for his stunning work for a french contemporary fashion brand, we clearly spot similar elements in his design for this carhartt store yet the aesthetics are obviously in line with the brand's distinct streetwear image. an expansive wall, stretching all the way to the back of the store, has been kept in an untreated state while the bottom half has been covered by glass and steel shelving. boxy wooden displays dot the retail space, placed on matching wooden flooring. sleek rectangular and cros-shaped light fixtures dangle from the ceiling and correspond beautifully with the shelving, clothes racks and the huge black window frames. a small staircase in the back leads to a small mezzanine where an office and storage space is situated. the new carhartt store the brand's menswear collection and the x style and heritage lines. and to celebrate the store opening carhartt has teamed up with renowned japanese cult brand soph. for a limited edition collection. location: 57 rue du temple [marais].
