Decorated in champagne gold hues, the boutique blends Chengdu’s local elements with the Maison’s French aesthetics. The store boasts VIP salons and a customer service area as well as an experiential space called Studio Treize for guests. The local tea culture of Chengdu has also inspired the design of the boutique, with a separate Tea House space on the first floor.
