Big Bang at Tierra Santa Healing House
Big Bang Boutique
Alan Faena has partnered with Argentine couture designer Paula Selby Avellaneda to bring a supernova of style to Faena’s Tierra Santa spa boutique in the form of Big Bang, a retail shop featuring one-of-a-kind treasures special throughout time.
To stock the boutique, Selby tapped a cadre of her contemporaries to create a range of exclusive pieces that will retail alongside ready-to-wear clothing from her label House of Matching Colours. “These are unique creators from around the world designing collections based on their inspiration in the moment,” says Selby. “Many of them are artists who only sell by word-of-mouth, not in the mainstream.” She’s referring to talents like Mariel Manuel, a designer based in Chennai, India, whose work is shown on the runways of Paris fashion week for haute couture houses like Balenciaga. Manuel is creating a line of hand-dyed and embroidered kaftans for Big Bang. “They are numbered works of art. If she makes anything again, it will be something totally different,” says Selby. Ines Bonadeo and Christa Wilm have created beautiful jewelry collections inspired by nature. Belgian designer Niels Peeraer’s leather handbags, sold mainly in Japan, can also be found in the boutique, as well as London-based perfumer Francesca Francini’s inaugural collection of home essences, which has found plenty of fans this side of the Atlantic.
" These items are difficult to find, many you won't see anywhere else, which makes them the perfect souvenir." - Paula Selby Avellaneda
