New menswear floor for Roberto Cavalli's Milan flagship

Fashion retailer Roberto Cavalli has introduced new interiors on the menswear floor of its Milan flagship branch, on Via Montenapoleone.

Rodrigo Izquierdo Design Studio has designed the space, in keeping with the retailer’s current store concept created by Roberto Cavalli Group creative director Paul Surridge.

The objective of the redesign was to create a pleasing modern space that characterises the architecture of Tuscany. Pure, elegant forms have been paired with a sumptuous choice of materials.

Navigation is aided by the materials palette. Circulation areas have walls clad in marble, and wainscoting is in different materials in different departments.

The four storey, 750 sq m (8,073 sq ft) branch has been trading since 2014, and it is undergoing a gradual refurbishment. The 300 sq m (2,153 sq ft) menswear department now features larger areas devoted to collections of sportwear and accessories, and a new ready-to-wear section.

Bespoke furniture has been created as part of the project, including brass and leather display racks.
