Founded in 2018, the flagship is known in the region for its attractive cut-outs, giant-sized images in the store's internal architecture, which come to life in a unique way for those who walk along one of the most frequented stretches of the road. This time, the sensory experience will attract even more curious eyes in a new integration between the virtual environment, full of hearts, and the physical world, through the camera of cell phones and tablets.
