MARCS commissioned DesignOffice to create a new store signature to reflect the effortless, stylish and simple brand values.More Information Less Information
The first prototype store opened in Canberra in August 2009 and was followed by further stores in Sydney and Melbourne.
The crux of the design is the distillation of the store to a palette of simple graphic forms, enduring natural finishes and an underlying sense of ease and effortless style. Natural oak panels lean against the walls to provide a fully flexible merchandisable wall system, able to take any fashion story for each season. These are anchored by a family of anodised aluminium and linoleum plinths for bags, shoes and accessories. Differing combinations provide height, depth and variety as needed.
