Apple's design is what has made it so successful: user-friendly and increasingly appealing, with sleek lines and crisp whites. That philosophy extends to its retail stores, too.
Inside, all of the stores look pretty much the same - Apple trademarked its store layout in 2013 - but each one offers its own unique look from the outside. Many stores are located in famed sites and historic buildings: Take, for example, Apple's location in an old bank building just across the street from a distinguished opera house in Paris, or its space in New York City's Grand Central Station.Angela Ahrendts, Apple's senior vice president of retail, has a vision for Apple stores: "A combination of experience and human connection," she told Vogue Business earlier this month. Ahrendts is the former CEO of Burberry and joined the tech company in 2013, a sign Apple has no plans to slow its retail ventures.
