Santiago
Fashion inside and out – Lebanon
2009 – 2011
  • REBRANDING

Santiago started as a small jeans and sportswear store in Kaslik, Lebanon at the onset of the 80s. Thirty years later, it had grown into a multi-brand high-end fashion boutique with two outlets, with a third one planned for the swanky Beirut Central District. To say that a rebranding was needed would be an understatement: not only did the previous identity misrepresent the new status of the fashion retailer, it was also a stylistic reminder that, well, it’s not the 80s anymore. As part of a large scale reworking of Santiago’s mother-brand as well as its siblings, the fashion boutique’s identity received a makeover to coincide with the opening of its new outlet, in and of itself an of-the-day statement piece in store design.

    Not the right decade
    2009
    The much needed revisiting of the Santiago mark resulted in a more age-appropriate signature, so to speak: a simple logotype, elegant, feminine, peculiar, and with a little cherry on top.

  • Santiago-Store and sign

    Street-store exchange
    2011
    A simple sign identifies the boutique on the outside, but the main attraction is a tri-face prism billboard on the inside – part of the store design scheme by apractice studio – which takes on a set of alternating visuals and acts as a backdrop to the window display. For the store opening, the theme of the naked mannequins is maintained.
