Flagship store for Bolon Eyewear in Shanghai, China by Ippolito Fleitz Group

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Bolon is one of the world’s largest spectacles manufacturers and China’s best-known sunglasses brand. The Bolon brand is positioned as a premium lifestyle brand in this segment. The main advertising campaign, revolving around French actress Sophie Marceau, evokes French elegance and fashion consciousness. Our new store design offers a clear spatial interpretation of this attitude. Unique spatial elements that retell a narrative, such as iconographic shelves and a polished gold ceiling, vividly illustrate the brand’s realigned public image as a self-confident market leader.
