Moncler opens Buckhead Atlanta store; raises the bar for others
Parisian interior design firm The Gilles & Bossier Studio has collaborated with Moncler to create unique retail spaces, with each store defined by a series of sumptuous details. The Buckhead Atlanta store is no exception; it’s by far the most beautifully designed among the stores that have opened to date.
The windows would be a stand-out even on Fifth Avenue, with mannequins artfully poised on ski lifts amid scenes from the French Alps. Inside the store, no fewer than two-dozen mannequins are positioned throughout the space, even perched high on shelves. Fur throws and back-lit graphics of stacked firewood and a polar bear add ski-lodge atmosphere to the sophisticated space. An iPad display gives shoppers online access to Moncler’s complete line.
Moncler is a 60-year-old French apparel retailer named after Monestier de Clermont, a mountain village near Grenoble in France. The Buckhead Atlanta store, located on Bolling Way adjacent to Brunello Cucinelli, is only the sixth Moncler store to open in the U.S. Others are in Aspen, New York, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles.
