The design concept is aimed towards providing customers with a holistic, premium offline experience to interact closely with the brand’s offerings. The store also has a lot of natural and earthy elements giving the space a lot of warmth and elegance. Some of these design elements include the terracotta material finish for the walls which is known to give an earthy touch to the space, ample natural light as well as green spaces around the store.
