Gabriela Hearst announces the opening of an exclusive retail installation at Le Bristol in Paris. The residence at the hotel’s ground floor boutique will host a standalone House for the first time and it will be Gabriela Hearst’s first exclusive retail location in Paris. The space was entirely re-imagined for the occasion with natural-toned linen wall coverings and reclaimed local French oak display shelves, echoing the Gabriela Hearst flagship store designs in both New York and London. Custom furniture and fixtures were designed in collaboration with French sculpture and furniture design maker Antoine Dumas and woodworking artisan Benji Gavron.
“Le Bristol simply put is the best hotel in the world. Having the opportunity to open our store at the hotel is a privilege. It will be our first proper presence in Paris...and, it’s my home when in Paris” – Gabriela Hearst, Founder and Creative Director
The store will include pieces from Gabriela Hearst women’s and men’s collections–including ready-to-wear, fine merino wool and cashmere knitwear, and fine jewelry. This will be the first time a limited assortment of the Gabriela Hearst handbag collection will be available in Paris, specifically the Nina, the Demi and the Diana.

ABOUT ANTOINE DUMAS AND BENJI GAVRON
Benji and Antoine met in 2017 through mutual friends and developed a strong bond through a shared passion in design and fabrication. Over the past four years they have collaborated both informally and formally through dialogue, design and physical creation. Their design process is focused around accentuating the beauty of raw large scale material and sustainable production, working almost exclusively with reclaimed lumber. Central to their studio practice, each work is created by hand and treated as a functional and sculptural art piece with its own unique narrative.
