Liberty of London’s first standalone store opened last week, showcasing the heritage of its iconic parent Liberty combined with modern opulence.

The luxury accessories store on Sloane Street, which will be a blueprint for global expansion, was conceived by creative director Tamara Salman and designed by Paris architects Pierre Buecler and Jean-Christophe Poggioli.

The store draws upon the architecture found in the Liberty store on Great Marlborough Street, including an inlay of an abstract Ianthe signature print on the ground floor.

Ceiling and wall moulds imitate the medieval creatures and oak panelling that feature in the Liberty store. Circular 1960s chandeliers add a modern twist and luggage rack product shelves and dressing rooms decked out like train carriages pay homage to the Orient Express and the glamour of travel.
