Almaplena Stores

Almaplena is an ethnic fashion accessories brand, supplying bags, scarves, costume jewelery, etc. Almaplena stores are defined by warm colours and a colonial influence. Different cultures, particularly eastern ones, provide particular inspiration for their collections.The 60 Almaplena stores, found throughout northern Italy and abroad and designed by Studio Alberto Apostoli, were an opportunity to engage with ethnicity and clothing products. These stores have an ethnic dimension expressed in an alternative architectural and sensory language that influences the presentation of products that differ in type, price range, and purpose. The stores have a warm color palette and a colonial atmosphere, rich in references to travel as an experience and to the cultures of the various continents (especially the Orient) from which the individual collections are inspired. The studio has managed and designed each store in the most important historical centers of Italy and Europe, in the most prestigious shopping centers, in airports, and some atypical and unusual places. The design services included structural, operational, and graphic architectural designs, as well as the management of the various technical and administrative issues related to the different locations.
