Store Info: Wrong Weather
Wrong Weather is more than a store…Located in the Boavista Avenue, right next to the Casa da Música, the large glass windows with the store’s logo engraved read: “Fashion and Lifestyle for Contemporary Men”, but that sentence doesn’t do justice to what’s in store for you.
The project, initiated by João Pedro Vasconcelos with the collaboration of Miguel Flor aimed to provide a different concept on the usual store, one that would merge their passion for fashion, art and design. Sucess is the word for what they’ve come up with…
The moment you walk in you can’t help to feel like you have just come out of a time machine 100 years into the future. The store’s design is heavily influenced by a futuristic vision, sure to remind you of a sci-fi spaceship worthy of any Hollywood blockbuster. The mix of carefully placed lightning with dark colored surfaces and elements inspired by Rem Koolhaas’ Casa da Música, definitely set the mood for the whole concept.
As you make your way through the store you’ll find a vast selection of items focused on catering to your every need:
- High-end clothes, accessories, shoes and grooming products to indulge your vanity;
- Artifacts and designer items for your place;
- Notebooks and pens to write down your every thought;
- A gallery, housing temporary exhibits that will put to peace your craving for creativity and all forms of art.
Keep in mind that all items on display exude quality, as one has come to expect from top notch brands. Wrong Weather houses some of the industry’s top names, such as Dries Van Noten, Common Projects, Commes des Garçons, A.P.C. and Yohji Yamamoto. Besides these, you’ll be able to find the in-house label named after the store, which presents a more affordable price tag while maintaining great materials and fit.
One of the things that impressed me the most was the grooming products’ cabinet at the back of the store: exclusive fragances, moisturizers, shaving creams, concealers, cleansers, you name it. Take your time going through it, you won’t regret it. Above this cabinet you’ll notice the see through glass offices and photo studio.
Wrong Weather also has an e-shop that ships worldwide so everyone can get a hold of their items. Check their website at http://www.wrongweather.net and pay them a visit!
