Manolo Blahnik Opens New Store in Kuala Lumpur


London-based footwear brand Manolo Blahnik has launched its first store in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia—a 1,076-sq.-ft. outpost in the city’s Pavilion Mall. Designed by London-based architect Nick Leith Smith, the store features a bamboo forest motif, positioning the plant’s natural growing pattern as a parallel to the flowing arrangements of shoes along brass shelving.

The darkly stained bamboo structures snake through the space in elegant curves, illuminated by suspended brass pendants. Herringbone pattern marble floors are clad with inlaid brass detailing, drawing inspiration from palm leaves, mirroring the canopy-like brass overhead lighting. Natural woven fabric is featured as well in stools and ottomans in muted tropical tones, accented by contrasting metallic and stone finishes.
