Behind a typically Parisian facade of rue Charlot (3rd arrondissement) is the new boutique of Enfants Riches Déprimés, a unisex brand launched in 2012 in Los Angeles (United States) by the young designer Henry Levy. Like the American label, the Parisian address of the fashion house distills a nihilistic aesthetic and a taste for ostentation in a minimalist space signed Didier Fiúza Faustino.
Inspired by both the simplicity of the bunker and the function of the safe, the Parisian boutique Enfants Riches Déprimés is a space of 45 square meters which accommodates on two levels expensive clothes oscillating between punk fashion and minimalist style, costumes oversize, printed t-shirts or revisited Perfectos.
“The Enfants Riches Déprimés boutique is a contained gray area, a geometric boudoir, surgical limbo. The space was designed as a scene made of metal and stone to enclose the experience of desire. " It is in these terms that the French architect and artist Didier Fiúza Faustino describes the interior of the store. All in lines, full and empty, the shop mixes noble materials: gray marble, stainless steel and green asparagus carpet.
On the ground floor, the steel of the panels, the supports and the chair Love Me Tender blends harmoniously with the Saint-Laurent marble on the floor, walls and niches, while in the basement the artist creates alliances of opposites: the curves of the sofa ABCD by Pierre Paulin oppose the angular lines of the alcoves welcoming accessories and shoes, the anthracite nuances of marble, steel and suede contrast with the bright green of the carpet and the sofa.
Distributed across the Atlantic in Los Angeles, Miami Beach and Beverly Hills, the Enfants Riches Déprimés brand is now offering a luxurious setting in the heart of the Marais.
A boudoir with a cozy atmosphere.
