TAKE TWO: Following the celebrations of its 20th anniversary, Turkish fashion brand Dice Kayek is setting up a second shop at Galeries Lafayette.
Already present with its high-end Black Label at the Labo Luxe des Galeries on the first floor of the Paris department store, the brand has now inaugurated an in-store shop dedicated to its more accessible Pink Label collection.
The 419-square-foot venue is kept quiet and simple in white with gray marble set against Galeries Lafayette’s majestic cupola.
Dice Kayek has a knack for stark contrasts. In December the brand won the Jameel Prize, an international art award for work inspired by Islamic traditions and presided over by Zaha Hadid, for its “Istanbul Contrast” collection. This included a dress entirely hand-embroidered with ancient glass beads, mimicking the interior of the Hagia Sophia.
Parts of the collection, along with the works of the other finalists, are on display at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum until April 21.
