today Oct 29, 2018
Portuguese beauty and fragrance house Claus Porto has opened its first international store in New York's Nolita neighborhood.
Located on 230 Elizabeth Street, the 550-square-foot store is decorated with historic memorabilia, including a framed diploma certifying that Claus Porto was awarded a gold medal at the 1904 Universal Exhibition in Saint Louis. The store will offer a range of the brand's beauty products and perfumes, including soaps, shaving creams and eau de cologne.
Designed by Tacklebox Architecture's Jeremy Barbour, the store's interior is inspired by Portuguese architecture and features a forty-two-foot-long freestanding archway made from Portuguese cork, a tiled tunnel made in homage to the Casa dos Bicos in Lisbon and the azulejo frescos of Porto's São Bento train station, and a decorative Estremoz marble washbasin identical to one in Claus Porto's Flagship Store.
The Claus Porto founding flagship is located in Porto and the brand also operates a second store in Lisbon.
Claus Porto is distributed in 60 countries in department stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom in the United States; Liberty London in the UK; The Conran Shop in the UK and France, Le Bon Marché and Printemps in Paris; andThe Corner in Berlin. The brand is also available in countries like South Korea and China, as well as online at Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter.
