GUERLAIN 68 CHAMPS-ELYSEES
Guerlain’s historic flagship at 68 avenue des Champs-Elysées has been extended and completely revamped by S&M design hero Peter Marino. Along with the original marble lined apothecary-esque space, there’s now a huge, contemporary, corridor to the left, presenting the different Guerlain universes across fragrance, cosmetics and skincare. Take the stairs down to the restaurant Le 68 by star chef Guy Martin, aswell as the patisserie counter and one dedicated to an exclusive series of teas or the new 68 fragrance. Upstairs from the original space (Andrée Putman’s fit out has been replaced) discover an exclusive range of silk scarves, scented gloves and fans, created especially for the new address. The made-over beauty institute is on the 3rd floor.
