Launching their first flagship, Delhi based clothing brand Almost Gods unveiled their incredible 400 square feet stone-carved store, inspired by the Nabatean architecture of Petra, Jordan.
The highly anticipated store features a giant Griffin in mid-flight bursting out of the rocky walls, accompanied by the continuation of Nabatean architectural design elements like wall carvings and stacked rock structures throughout. The Griffin is a symbol of power and strength, also considered to be a guardian or protector across many south-east Asian cultures.
The store design is everything but simple, in a process that took its creators five months to complete. A life-sized mock-up of the store was created out of Styrofoam, inclusive of moulds for each separate element from the body of the griffin, wings, columns, and broken niches. Interiors aside, the store also has a patio space fit for events, installations, live performances and showcases.
This iconic shopping destination has made waves for Almost Gods, as well as representing the culture in Delhi, and the forward-thinking dynamic position in its curation of brands. Launching the new space, Dhruv, CEO of Almost Gods, said:
“The big plan for Almost Gods is to have a vibrant community across the globe. We’re excited about the growing awareness within the UK and European markets and the warmth with which the last collection was received. We’d love to open a retail space within the UK soon.”
