design for all

LATELY, I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE—OF DESIGN, THAT IS. PERHAPS it’s because after spending the last few months creating ELLE DECOR’s 30thanniversary issue, which was published in October, it was time to stop feeling nostalgic and to begin considering tomorrow. Maybe it’s because as magazine editors, even in the digital age, we’re accustomed to planning three months ahead. Or because I’m feeling rejuvenated by my new office, seen here, which was decorated by David Kaihoi in collaboration with the fabulous Newel antiques shop and 1stdibs. No matter the reason, even though it’s only November, I’ve been wrapping my head around the new year. And this issue, covering everything from cutting-edge appliances for your kitchen to New York’s retail renaissance, is here to help. It starts with our striking cover,…

store design retail’s renaissance

WHEN THE FASHION designer Carolina Herrera appointed Wes Gordon to be the new steward of her eponymous label, it was inevitable that change would soon follow. In September, Gordon unveiled the newly remodeled Herrera flagship on Madison Avenue to much fanfare. To realize his grand vision, he brought in the Brazilian architect Andre Mellone and interior designer Chiara de Rege, who is known for creating the Wing’s millennial-pink aesthetic. The result is a fresh and elegant space full of bold colors, lush fabrics—Jim Thompson silks, Claremont velvets, Samuel & Sons trim—and vivid patterns set against a white canvas. Mellone reconfigured the three-story prewar building, moving the entrance off the avenue to 75th Street, which makes the store feel more like a grand residence. What better way to help shoppers, so…

cinematic approach

You’ve directed films like Call Me By Your Name and I Am Love. Now you’re unveiling the design of your first fashion project, a New York store for the Italian label Redemption (redemption.com). What was your inspiration? LUCA GUADAGNINO: We wanted to combine the timelessness of Paris and 1960s rock and roll into something that speaks to today. What materials were used in the store’s design? We re-created the foyer of a typical Parisian Haussmann building using travertine and added moldings and floral motifs to the boiserie by Nigel Peake. We lined all the walls in a custom white Dedar velvet. My studio devised the pattern for the wood flooring as a chevron, using reclaimed wood from the Trentino–Alto Adige region of Italy. What kind of experience were you trying to create?…

IN 2006, WHEN STEVE JOBS INAUGURATED APPLE’S original flagship on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, he planted a glass cube to mark the entrance to the underground space. After a two-year renovation, the cube remains—rebuilt to Jobs’s exact specifications. But everything else about the store is entirely new. Apple tapped Foster + Partners—the architects behind the company’s new Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California—to expand and redesign the retail space. Created in the 1960s as the sunken plaza of the General Motors Building, the outdoor area has been filled in and now boasts rows of honey locust trees, water features, and 18 mirrored-glass “sky lenses” that rise like inverted moon craters for outdoor seating. Inside the cube, a stainless steel spiral staircase leads to a subterranean store whose lighting system was designed…
