'oui monsieur, non monsieur': cute french shop girl who goes the extra yard.

interior

martin margiela's signature white-washed formula got a glam make-over with the addition of a lot of shiny glass, metal and clever use of lighting. the L-shaped space has different sections, the most striking one being the front where decorative man-sized metal letters are randomly positioned across the space.

martin margiela's newest range of flagship stores are a far cry from the well-hidden, artsyfartsy boutiques a decade ago. just like the flagship store in tokyo's omotesando area, this one sits pretty in the limelight.
