The store recalls Brazil’s grand residential ranches while channelling a signature equestrian heritage.
Evoking the fine craftsmanship of regional tradition, the storefront features archways made of cast stone and white plaster along with two water fountains that flank the grand entrance, creating a loggia rich in decorative detail
that helps to reinforce the ease of indoor-outdoor living.
A traditional layout of alternating smaller and larger rooms features reclaimed oak beams, stained concrete floors with oak ties and decorative ceramic tiles, hand-finished plaster walls, a mix of oak and painted white
furniture cases, and handcrafted antique vitrines and fixtures. Decorative pendants, hand-woven area rugs, new and antique upholstered furniture and potted palms are combined, highlighting a refined taste. Drawing
attention to the heart of the store, a well-appointed bar will provide a magnificent haven to rest and relax, complimenting the retail experience through unparalleled service, a selection of cocktails and light fare.
Upon entering the store, the foyer leads to dedicated rooms housing Collection for women on the left and Purple Label for men on the right. A wide selection of beautifully crafted footwear, accessories and eyewear
for both men and women appear within separate salons of these areas.
