N°21 opens its first flagship store in Italy, in Milan. The space located in the fashion quad, at Via Santo Spirito 14, has an elegant atmosphere, never losing sight of the sophisticated style of the creative director and founder of the brand, Alessandro Dell’Acqua.
The boutique, with over 120 m2 of space, is divided into three zones with its own aesthetic of contrasts and forceful architectural content. The project is the result of collaboration between Alessandro Dell’Acqua and the architect Hannes Peer.
The first zone features the chromatic face-off of black and white in the marble floor, the polycarbonate ceilings, bakelite wall panels and a boiserie-sculpture.
The second is much closer to the idea of contemporary art, with mirrored display fixtures on the walls, creating a dilated spatial effect.
The third, for accessories, is a tribute to Milanese architecture. The floor and the walls are covered with “Ceppo di Grè,” the typical stone of Romanesque art, used in the Cathedral and the columns of Sant’Ambrogio.
“The first N°21 flagship in Italy represents a fundamental step in the growth of the brand, and I am very happy to have managed to concentrate all of the brand’s stylemes in the boutique,” says Alessandro Dell’Acqua, “such as the use of typical materials of Milanese architecture, my personal tribute to the city, with which I have very strong ties.”
