paris: so wax

© merci

parisian concept store merci is known for its quirky take on high-end lifestyle, defining it with a more considered approach and a focus that's adventurous to say the least. this attitude is obviously reflected the store's merchandise, and very often themed installations further emphasize this discerning retail philosophy. coinciding with the latest women's edition of paris fashion week, merci has launched an in-store celebration of african wax print with an installation and curated merchandise. entitled so wax, the event steers clear from bland folklore and instead takes cues from an exciting new generation of young african designers. on display is a dedicated collection of apparel items, jewellery, furniture pieces and objects, all designed by the merci design team [on through mar 26]. location: 111 boulevard beaumarchais [marais].
