Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 17, 2016
Free People, the well-known lifestyle brand, will add its first store in the Hawaii state on August 25th, 2016. At 5,500 gross square feet, this large format Free People store will be located at the International Marketplace in Honolulu. This will be the brand’s 124th store across the United States and Canada.
The store will be designed in the brand’s Studio concept. Highlighting the more rugged side of the Free People girl, the space is designed to feel like her personal workshop by featuring a mix of rugged elements and feminine details throughout. Customers will be welcomed through a custom steel, glass and wood clad storefront featuring double entry doors and custom hardware. A natural brick base will adorn the storefront, with natural brick pavers positioned at the alcove entry and a brass back lit ‘Free People’ sign installed on top of a mix of white washed wood and carving on the store’s facade. Inside the space, the palette is soft and light. Reclaimed wide plank wood flooring changes direction within the store for easy customer navigation. Intricate wood beam details on the ceiling, featuring white washed wood slats, further help delineate the store’s multiple shopping areas. White washed wood, soft maple cladding, painted brick walls, and blackened leaning floor mirrors help complement the studio theme, while glittery mica plaster walls throughout further speak to the feminine aspect. Eight fitting rooms will be nestled towards the rear of the store featuring plaster walls, white washed wood slats, soft maple beams, and shimmery coin curtains.
The Honolulu Free People store will be stocked with a wide variety of clothing and accessories. A large assortment of the Endless Summer and Beach shop will be available including tunics, dresses, sets, rompers, tops, and soft pants.
