Aesop store Milan
It has been a few weeks now since I came back from Milan but with all the work on our new site I have not been able to show you my highlights of this trip. But we are up and running so time to tell you all about my Milan favourites.
Honestly I never had been to Milan before not even to Salone del Mobile (yes I know it's a shame...) because every year there seamed to be a big project going on or private circumstances that prevented me from going. As we arrived already on Sunday we had enough time to explore the city. I have to admit that I can add this city to one of my favourite cities now. The people are so friendly, the food is great and the architecture and old buildings really made me fall in love.
During our stroll we visited the Aesop store in the Brera district and like every Aesop store the interior of the store was truly beautiful and inspiring.
When entering the store the brass counters are a big statement and detail and make a great combination with the concrete floor and wall details. I wish you could smell the fragrance in the store because this was so nice. Aesop offers different aromatic oils that you can use with an oil burner and room sprays to make your home smell like you enter an Aesop location.
If you are ever visiting Milan make sure you stop by one of the two Aesop stores in the city. You can find the map here for the locations.
Established in 1987 Aesop offers skin, hair and body care formulations created with meticulous attention to detail, and with efficacy and sensory pleasure in mind.
Since Aesop’s inception, the have maintained a fiercely independent approach to product research and development. Their team of skilled chemical scientists works out of the Head Office in a utilitarian, custom-built laboratory – conceptualising product ideas, researching blends, and creating prototypes.
" We source ingredients from the most reputable suppliers across the globe, then marry contemporary technology with long-established scientific practices."
In seeking new locations, the first consideration is to work with what already exists. It is their intention to weave themselves into the fabric of place and add something of merit rather than impose a discordant presence, and their consistent practice to use a locally relevant design vocabulary.
