Vince Camuto in Manhattan, New York by Sergio Mannino Studio

The Vince Camuto Grand Central Terminal Store in Manhattan is the result of continued creative collaborations between New York-based Italian architect Sergio Mannino and Vince Camuto, founder and CEO of the Camuto Group. Mannino, who has worked on the Vince Camuto showroom and outlet store, wanted to highlight merchandise in this new Midtown store while incorporating soft, crisp, and warm elements into the design throughout.
Mannino faced structural challenges when designing the store: the floor level of the store was higher than the rest of the terminal and there were also several columns that blocked the view, also making it difficult to place fixtures around the store. Mannino and his design team created a shelving system that wraps the columns on the left side while connecting them on the right side. To keep with Camuto’s edgy feminine style, Mannino used materials like white lacquer, polished chrome metal, and a ceramic floor that looks like wood (Esko by Impronta Italgraniti). The color palette takes on different shades of gray for a balance of modernism and sophistication. The store also features reconstituted veneer on the back wall with a silver grain embedded in it made by Alpi.
