Boutique shoe stores are alive and well! In an increasingly globalized and uniform world, it’s comforting to know that boutique shoe stores are still very much with us, are aware of their strengths and confidently invest in their future. One such store, called CALIGULA, is located in the renowned arcades of the South Tirol spa resort town of Meran. Having recently undergone a complete facelift, the store looks terrific and sprightly, thanks to a lighting design that shows the space to best advantage.
The shoes are displayed at a suitable distance from each other on “floating” glass surfaces. Particularly exquisite models are placed jewelry-like in glass display cases, along with matching accessories. Other noteworthy features of the store’s design are its wide spiral staircase, tilted full-length mirrors, generously proportioned seating, and deftly arranged tables and pedestals. This harmonious arrangement is magnificently illuminated by RZB’s Magcardo® spotlight and the recessed Pura Spot R Midi, which is fitted with 35 watt HIT lamps.
