French fashion brand Carven has chosen this prestigious South Kensington Brompton Cross location for their first UK store in London. FDA were appointed as Executive Architects to develop and deliver Eric Chevalier’s concept.

Based on an oversized wardrobe idea the design features floor-to-ceiling mirrors, oak clad walls and elegant white mosaic tiles, creating visually enlarged and fresh interior. Innovative mix of common materials and richer elements resulted in a familiar and accommodating space where the main focus remains on the clothing with the large back wall being entirely devoted to a playfully show off Carven’s signature rounded collars.

The new Carven store was successfully completed within 6 weeks programme, with FDA involved in developing Phillip Lim store next door simultaneously.
