Project: Hawkers, Rome

Design: CuldeSac Custom
Opening date: April 2018
Store size: 17 sq m

Following the launch of its first physical store last year in Madrid, sunglasses retailer Hawkers has opened its second flagship store, located near Plaza de Espana in Rome. The brand describes the Rome location as 'pure energy' and says there is no better way to define the new flagship store.

The use of colour has been used in a spontaneous, changeable and living way to characterise the space, which has been designed by CuldeSac. An explosion of energy is reflected in the mirror baseboards of the walls, in which 3D animations allow the brand to interact with shoppers. The colour interacts with the environment to alter it, becoming the filter that surrounds it all.
