Over the Top


Stella Cadente, the label established in 1991 by designer Stanislasia Klein, has opened an intriguing new store on Boulevard Beaumarchais in Paris. Inspired by a fairy tale, the cylindrical, 50 sq. meter space, is entirely covered in gold leaf. 
All of it.

The store's walls are curved, with the display units built right into the walls.The use of a monochromatic color, metallic gold, ensures a more spacious feeling. 
Is this wild or what?

Even the exterior metal frame was gilded.

To say the boutique "stands out" in the neighborhood is an understatement.

A spaceship-like feeling...

Although I cannot find the specifics on the gold leaf, I would venture to say by its size that the leaf is Dutch metal. 

Even the concrete is gilded.

Doesn't this look like a life-size precious case?
