Creative director Frida Gianni says, “The idea was also to create a special environment with an emphasis on transparency and light.” Perhaps she’s alluding to the bling, which will be sold in an adjoining three-story jewelry shop. (There’s also a VIP section, natch, accessible by a separate entrance and elevator.)
