Monolithic limestone totems and cast bronze pedestals punctuate the interior of this Milanese fashion boutique by architect Claudio Silvestrin (+ slideshow).
Regimented rows of roughly-hewn limestone columns create a textural backdrop to the clothes, which are hung on geometric metal rails.
The changing rooms feature walls and floors made from leather with handles given an antique bronze finish.
Blocks of cast bronze with differing dimensions provide pedestals for the products, a display island, a screen for the cash desk and a bench in the VIP room.
Rectilinear white leather armchairs continue the geometric theme.
A water feature runs along one of the walls, which are made from porphyry stone with a water-jet finish.
Claudio Silvestrin previously designed a kitchen island made of porphyry stone, which the architect used in his design for rapper Kanye West's Manhattan apartment block.
Other fashion boutiques that have appeared on Dezeen recently include the extension of Paul Smith's Albemarle Street store in London, and a boutique in Brussels that features cacti, gravel, concrete floors and a wooden bridge.
