Concept store MERCI in Paris, is a mandatory stop for any designer when visiting the metropolitan city of lights.
Always packed and full of patrons and design enthusiasts alike, it has become the parisian ‘go-to’ destination.
For particular products from international creatives. the store’s layout and display is changing continuously, almost week to week, resulting in a quick turn over of products, featuring new, but also objects from merci’s basic.
Collection. The idea to change the merchandise so frequently is to present the designs in new contexts, showing the diversity of merci’s product line and the various means in which items can be used.
The design section of the store is curated by jean-luc colonna d’istria and daniel rozensztroch.
The designer corner cradles pieces created especially for the store by the likes of YSL, Stella McCartney, Azzaro, Alexis Mabille and Marni — and cost 30-40 percent less than from its respective name-brand stores. Upstairs features, at again slashed prices, children clothing from Bonpoint, which alludes to Merci’s other amazingly generous cause: all profits are re-funneled into a children’s charity in Madagascar.
