The luxury lifestyle brand’s new flagship store in New York is a new design and layout from architect Robert Hirsch.
His first design was for a restaurant in the 1980s.
But in recent years, Hirsch has worked on everything from the new luxury home on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to the luxury hotels in Las Vegas.
Here, he explains why the design is so different.
Recode: Your brand, your design, your branding.
So, how did you come to design a luxury boutique?
Hirsch: My father designed the original Marriott and the Marriott Central in Las Angles.
I also designed the first hotel in San Francisco.
So I’m very passionate about design.
And that’s how I got into architecture.
I went to the School of Architecture at the University of Southern California and I took the MFA program in Design and Construction.
And then I moved to New York and started working at The MFA in New Work.
And I was really fortunate to work on the first luxury hotel in Las Palmas.
And, of course, the hotel itself was designed by Robert Hussman.
He’s a really brilliant architect.
And the interior design, which is also one of the reasons why we’re so successful, is done by Hirsch Associates, which I have worked with on a number of different projects, including the new boutique store in Manhattan.
Recoding: And why do you love luxury?
Hitzl, a real estate agent in San Diego: There’s this sense of excitement and I feel that this is something that’s really important to us, to be able to represent what we do, and so, of all the other things we do in the world, to represent luxury is really important.
Recoded: I think you mentioned in a previous interview that you like design, and I think there’s a feeling among some people that design is an art.
How does it relate to making something like luxury?
It’s hard to make something as good and as beautiful as the brand you’re trying to create, right?
Hizl: Well, there’s not a lot of things that you can design that you’re going to be proud of, but the beauty is in the execution.
And if you look at the design of a lot the things we’re trying in our store, it’s not so much the style, it is the way we’re going about it, the way our team is trying to achieve it, and that’s what we like.
We like to be creative.
And we want people to be inspired by the design.
It’s a beautiful, beautiful world.
Recoder: And there’s always that feeling that this might not be a design project, but something that could become a luxury item?
And so I think that it’s always a great way to make sure that you are in a position to have a good experience.
It will be like a luxury product, it will be something that you’ll be proud to own, and we want to do a good job with that.
And it will give you that sense of confidence in what you’re doing, that you know that you’ve done something really good.
Recodes: Do you have an idea of the size of your brand?
Huhl: We are definitely in the middle of a transformation.
The stores are starting to grow, but our core business is the luxury brand.
And what that means is that we’re starting to expand our retail.
And with the success of the first store in Las Casas, we’ll continue to grow.
We’re now in two stores, and there’s one in New Jersey and one in Florida.
And there will be a new one in a few weeks in San Antonio, Texas.
Recoders: Do all your employees have to be designers?
But we have a great team of designers and we have people in marketing, we have marketing people who are designers.
Recos: And who makes up the marketing team?
Hhizl, an attorney in San Clemente: We’re a very diverse team, so I’m happy to answer any questions.
Recovers: Is there anything you haven’t talked about yet that you want to mention?
Hhhhh, no, nothing that I can’t talk about in my own words.
The M.F.A. program in Architecture is an excellent way to build the skills needed to design and design and make the best of an architectural opportunity.
I like to talk about a number, but I’m going to start with the biggest, because it’s the one that’s a lot.
We are at the height of a big shift in our industry.
And this is a huge opportunity.
