The concept was unveiled at the new Kenzo boutique on  via Manzoni in Milan. The 250-square-meter space features pristine white surfaces with alternating faux marble motifs, grids of futuristic neon lights, monolithic staircase in lapis lazuli stone colors, and aluminum racks that showcase pieces from the latest collections with an edgy touch. At the entrance, visitors are welcomed by a giant sculpture inspired by Milan’s food-loving culture, a surreal giant plate of spaghetti. Massive screens cover the walls facing mirrors to plunge visitors into Kenzo’s digital universe.Image credits: Kenzo
