Flagships / 時尚旗艦店

Flagship stores, or simply flagships, are main stores from retailers designed to serve a mainstream of customers. Most noticeably, flagships are found in prominent shopping districts (e.g., Ginza, Madison Avenue, etc.) that are targets for a main set of worldwide high-income shoppers. Because of this, shopping at an upscale flagship is seen as high social/economic status. Flagships are, as well, larger in retail size and hold the most volumes in merchandise.

*The Fashion of Architecture*

Architecture is making its presence felt in cutting-edge fashion. The pliable metals, membrane structures, lightweight glasses and plastics used in building construction are creeping onto the catwalk. As they do so, their impact on recent textile developments has produced fabrics that enable clothing to act as individual climate-controlled environments that can exchange information with embedded sensors, resulting in wearable dwellings that act as both shelter and clothing. At the same time, architects are borrowing the techniques of pleating, stapling, cutting and draping from traditional tailoring to design buildings that are flexible, interactive, inflatable and even portable. Although the relationship between architecture and fashion was recognized more than a century ago, the connection between them has rarely been explored by historians, designers or practicing architects.

時尚工業發現建築是一個表達的新管道;與建築掛在一起成了時尚工業的新「時尚」。而另一方面,建築也在時尚工業裡找到了探索及發展的新競技場,以及這門專業裡失落已久的「光彩」。


成英姝(知名作家):「時尚反映了整個時代的慾望,建築是這慾望的實體,這使我們看到建築既標記了時間又超越了時間的奇蹟。」

石靈慧(LVMH時尚集團台灣區前任執行長) :「建築與時尚,是人們以想像力與技術,以自己的渴望投射所創造出來的。 這是寄存在地球上不同時代、不同文化內的兩顆珠寶。它們具有最大的相同基因,就是隨著時代精神、為了容納與包裝人體而變化。我相信,兩者最大的不同是,許多人可以在建築之內安眠,卻沒有人能在時裝的look之內,睡過好覺。」

葉錦添 (造型暨空間多元藝術家) :「衣服是人的第二肌膚, 衣服與建築是人意識生活的兩堵圍牆,互相依存,成為生活的模式。衣服是行為,建築是思想,建築是人寄生的處所。」

阮慶岳(知名作家):「建築與時尚的關係就如靈魂與其在人間的影子一般。」

王信智(知名作家):「當代建築與時尚都帶著優雅的刻薄與冷漠,突顯出人的熱情。建築是人帶不走的身外物,衣服是人移動時能帶著走的建築,我們可以不在乎風格,卻必須符合個人的美感。建築就像是一件好衣服,每次端詳,都會發現不一樣的愉悅細節,令人感到舒服。」

李欣頻(知名作家):「一個裸體的女人在歌劇院中或是在體育館裡,你會對她有不同的視覺想像。一名穿著華麗的Versace名模,或是一身黑白的修女進了同一棟建築,你也會對這建築產生不同的偏見。這就是為什麼建築也成了時尚的一部分。」
