L'Eclaireur, rue de Sévigné

 In > shopping

L’Eclaireur, another of Paris’s pioneering multibrand fashion stores (they’ll celebrate their 30th birthday next January), closed their rue Rosiers address earlier this year. When it opened in 1990, the 300m2 space was one of the first ‘concept’ stores associating high fashion with design, art and furniture. During Fashion Week earlier this month, l’Eclaireur opened a new Marais space, at 40 rue de Sévigné. Designed in association with the Belgian artist Arne Quinze, the succession of cavernous rooms are clad with a low-fi but intricate layering of different materials, and embedded with 147 video screens showing creepy subliminal black-and-white scenes that could be straight out of a David Lynch movie. It’s quite an experience.
