iAPM Grand Opening Highlights

10-03-2014

Last Friday, we celebrated the Grand Opening of our latest Shanghai store in the iAPM mall. It is built to be a premium experience-oriented boutique and a landmark for luxury for MCM in China. The iAPM mall is very special: it is the very first night time mall to open in Shanghai (it was inaugurated in August 2013). Opened between 10am and 11pm, it boasts six floors and a roof terrace, with the first two floors entirely dedicated to luxury brands. A true shopping haven for all the Shanghai based stylists.

It is located in the already bustling area of Huaihai Road and is already one of the most popular shopping destinations in Shanghai. In other words, we couldn't dream of a better location for our brand new MCM Experience store.

The interior is luxurious and warm with a large MCM Brass Plates booth right in the middle of the store, offering a very intimate shopping experience.


The store includes an MCM Gallery which currently features an exhibition called "Jelly Baby Family" by London-based pop artist Mauro Perucchetti.

Mauro Perucchetti's body of work combines Conceptual, Minimalist, and Pop Art traditions. A pioneer in the use of resin, he incorporates a variety of mediums such as crystals, chrome, gold and steel, appealing to the eyes and the sense of touch; his work is a mirror of modern day materialistic desires.

Mauro’s art takes a critical yet light-hearted approach, relying on symbols to create meaning. He unites Pop aesthetics with social comment to address some of the most pressing and difficult issues in today’s society in a way that is subtle and accessible, without being trite, shocking or obscure.

Mauro is above all an artist who is connected; he sees the bigger picture and has his finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary society.

As well as Mauro's artwork, you will also find more creations from other notable artists from around the world in our luxurious lounging area.

The store also features a large media wall and two video columns which provide an immersive experience while curating MCM’s brand ethos in an innovative manner. The video contents were exclusively created by internationally acclaimed artist & videographer Andrew Daffy from The House of Curves reflecting the MCM brand DNA and Shanghai’s vibrant colour and energy of the brand.

So far, we've talked about Art, which is an important part of MCM's DNA... Do you know what else takes centerstage at MCM? Yes of course: travel and mobility. You remember that Summer in London that saw us taking over a double decker bus, don't you? This time, to mark the opening of the first flagship in the mainland, a cruise ship that symbolises MCM’s spirit of freedom sailed into Shanghai harbour and dropped its anchor on the Huangpu River. Sporting the brand’s iconic Cognac Visetos logo design, it displayed MCM’s heritage originating in travel, conveying a modern mobile lifestyle, as well as its spirit of exploration.

That isn't all, of course! For this momentous occasion, we invited famous international movie star and fashion icon Chloe Sevigny, who was present to cut the ribbon with Mrs. Sung-Joo Kim, Chief Visionary Officer and Chairman of MCM Group. Her edgy style and carefree personality really suit MCM.

We had also planned something very special for the after party, which we held in a specially designed MCM space: there was a DJ of course, but also a model presentation, a parkour demonstration and much fun was had by all of our 800 guests!
