GENTEN


Japanese fashion group Kuipo Co. has opened its first Genten boutique in the heart of Florence, located in the antique Palazzo Cerchi.


The store covers two floors, one dedicated to the display of the brand’s accessories, while the other features a workshop where Florentine artisans customize bags, travel cases and small leather goods, with the revisited coat of arms of the Cerchi family. The venue uniquely blends the two distinctive Japanese and Florentine styles, with bonsai trees standing below frescoes of the lily, the symbol of the city.  — F.R.
