The Cheongdam-dong Seoul flagship store of luxury leather brand MCM carries all the usual leather bags, shoes, wallets and purses, but they seem to look, feel and even smell a whole lot better than the stuff you see in regular department stores.
It's probably due to the fancy decor of the interior and exterior of the building, which were designed by British artist Richard Woods. His furniture designs are also featured in the excellent Italian restaurant on the basement level.
MCM is also known for collaborations with local and foreign artists and designers, such as Patricia Field and Phenomenon.
