Emporium featured in Retail Focus

Tailor Area, Emporium

Our new store concept for Emporium stores in Guatemala has been featured in Retail Focus:

Our intent was to make visitors to the store feel comfortable as well as important,’ says Pooja Rao Pillai, studio director at Pompei A.D. ‘The colours, detail, fixtures and furniture lend themselves seamlessly to the mix of men’s club and atelier.’

[…]

The new design creates a sense of comfort, inspiration and masculinity, all of which are important to our clients, who have a strong appreciation for Emporium’s tradition of tailored and finely crafted suits,’ notes Roberto Morales, CEO of Emporium. ‘By combining the two concepts of men’s club and atelier, Pompei A.D. was able to convey a luxurious space that is also accessible and welcoming.’
