paris: aesop store opening

© aesop / photography: emmanuel barbe aesop is taking paris by storm, opening yet another wonderfully designed store in the city's marais area, amidst many cool peers. the new store is a light, minimalist room of polished concrete, with windows on the back wall allowing plenty of daylight in, and offering shoppers glimpse of lush greenery in the tranquil courtyard. as always, aesop maintains an interesting design aesthetic, and here it's is the integration of 427 small polished steel dishes into the walls, an acknowledgement of the industrial history of this part of town. the new aesop store carries the brand's entire collection of skin, hair and body products. location: 64 rue vieille du temple [marais].
