Richard Mille Istanbul



Timepiece creator brand Richard Mille has expanded its presence in Europe and Middle East with the opening of its İstanbul boutique. Being one of the first brand names to come to mind when it comes to luxury watches since 1999, Richard Mill opened a unique boutique with an elegant and impressive design at the very heart of the city. Located in St. Regis Hotel in the exclusive shopping venue Nişantaşı, the boutique attracts a huge attention with its characteristic design as well as its worldwide respected high quality products.

The luxury Swiss watch brand joined forces with arcoglobal for the fit-out process of its 100 m2 store. arcoglobal and Richard Mille collaborated also for the Qatar stores of the brand recently. Regarding İstanbul’s special position with all its dynamic, cosmopolite and hospitable atmosphere like other world cities such as London, New York, Paris and many other, Richard Mille İstanbul boutique reflects all the luxury and diversity into its design.

The creator of the brand carrying his own name, Richard Mille started his career in 1974 and focused on luxury segment watch sector. When he rolled up sleeves for the most exotic sports watch in the world, he created his brand which has become the favourite of the most successful sports persons and celebrities from different areas. Finally his works will meet luxury watch lovers of Istanbul in the brand’s own store.

While preparing this special boutique, arcoglobal worked out all the details of the interior space with intense care and creativity. The boutique draws attention with the design and forms applied with the variety of colours and materials. It is designed by Sophie Mallebranche, French artist and textile designer known for her woven metal materials that mix fibers and industrial materials. The interior has a striking contrast created by the contemporary looking dark colour tones obtained from woven metals, broken glass materials contributing to the powerfully modern feel and brown tones of traditional Makassar wood coming together. This contrast embracing the entire space adheres to Richard Mille’s warm and functional design identity. The elegant curves that revive the illuminated ceilings in soft tones combine with the colours dancing on the walls and welcome a recall to the brand’s origins reinforcing its modernism and gentle curves.

Richard Mille İstanbul boutique also houses a special workshop where the famous watchmaker brand could meet the demands of its enthusiasts and dedicated collectors as well as passionate wearers. In the highly comfortable and spacious main room, the large 3D clock which is the symbol of Richard Mille is on display. The iconic massive carved glass watch takes the attention towards the center of the store just as the boutique itself takes the attention of Nişantaşı visitors.

The comprehensive and stylish collection of the prestigious brand offering watches for men and women as well as very limited pieces comes together with the sophisticated work by arcoglobal, creating a center of attraction in the city.
