It’s actually Malherbe Paris, the creative agency he founded in 1993 that worked on the design of this 3,000 square meter space located on the first floor of the gem of a luxury boutique in Art Nouveau and Art Deco. An achievement based on desire: preserving the architectural heritage of “this well-located jewel”, as Hubert de Malherbe asserts, to please Parisians and foreigners alike.

“We have created the most beautiful, largest and most luxurious space of beauty in the world. A city within a city, punctuated by the zigzag curves that are the signature of our designs. The cycles evoke the random maps of last year’s Paris. Each thematic space has its own mosaic carpet with each idea being different,” explains Hubert de Malherbe who For twenty years he worked with the LVMH group, the owner of La Samaritaine, whose agency exclusively works in Christian Dior Parfums and Sephora stores. .

Some of the original architectural elements were (re)highlighted, such as the metal Eiffel columns, which were added to a stone plinth and an ornate crown, which, connected by ornate lintels, create booths through which the brands display their universes.
