Chloe Sevigny opens MCM in Shanghai iAPM.

It is built to be a premium experience-oriented boutique and a landmark for luxury for MCM in China. Before I tell you all about the new boutique, let me explain what makes the iAPM mall so 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 stylistas.

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.

Now is the moment you have been waiting for… Let’s go on a tour of the new boutique.

What makes this new boutique so special though is the experience it offers: there’s a cultural space which showcases art installations. The current installation is by Belgian artist Heidi Voet and is titled “As I See It”. Her work often uses popular images and objects. For this piece, she put together many digital watches and constructed this carpet-like electronic surface. All the watches have their alarms set at the same time, which means that every hour, the store resonates with the sound of eternity. A loop that signifies the passage of time, time used by MCM to explore the world, bring art to the fashion world and showcase a truly multicultural heritage.

Artist Heidi Voet also created a “Stars & Constellations” piece, which showcases the vastness of the sky via a creative placement of coin tokens. You can see it in our luxurious lounging area.
