Burberry Brit Mens And Womens Boutique Opened In New Yorks West Village

29 Jun

New Yorkers suffering from Anglomania: Rejoice! Now there’s a third location where you can snag Burberry’s exquisite British goods at an, ahem, gentler price point—Burberry Brit opened just over a week ago on Bleecker Street in the West Village. The interior of the 5,000 square-foot boutique features a new design concept by Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, with dark woods and even darker, high-polished furniture giving off a classic Britannia cool vibe to compliment the brand’s more casual line.

The store contains both men’s and women’s wear and you best believe plenty of their iconic coats are on tap for drooling, including The Roehampton, an aviator-inspired canvas and leather jacket, and The Vickroy, a classic brown trench. Also available are Burberry Brit accessories, timepieces, fragrances and eye wear…just in case you want to feel like you’re living in London. Hey, we’re willing to commit if it means looking like Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Emma Watson, or, hell, her brother Alex.

Shop At Soho Store Of Fashion Designer Diane Von Furstenberg

For East Side babes or downtown girls not willing to trudge to DVF’s Meatpacking flagship, TGIF takes on a new meaning for retail therapists everywhere with today’s opening of Diane von Furstenberg’s Soho store.

The concept, conceived with new-ish creative director Yvan Mispelaere, will be a model for new DVF locations, to better reflect what Diane calls the new era. Throwing off the mantle of “Comeback Kid,” Von Fusternberg tells WWD “We mean business” (we wish we could have heard that delivery).

The aesthetic is all brick walls and barn wood floors, which compliments the “Journey of a Dress” exhibition she held at the Pace Gallery in Beijing, along with empowering sayings like “Love is Life,” “BE the woman you want to be,” and “Glamour Shine Confidence” written in neon graffiti.

Also on tap are a boatload of accessories in their own designated, drool-worthy area, which really makes us want to GSC. Yes, Glamour, Shine, Confidence.

Summary: In 1972, Diane Von Furstenberg first made waves with a simple yet radical directive: “Feel like a woman. Wear a dress.”

Five million wrap dresses later, she graced the November 1976 cover of Newsweek, touted as a new icon of female liberation and the most marketable designer since Coco Chanel.

After a dalliance with her own cosmetics line and a home-furnishings collection, she stepped away from the fashion limelight and moved to Paris, only to reenter in 1992 with Silk Assets, a pioneer in television shopping (its debut collection sold out in less than two hours).

In 1997, Von Furstenberg relaunched her clothing line, and the iconic wrap dress found a warm reception once again. This time, it was the daughters of the first-wave audience who welcomed the wrap into their closets.

Today, the DVF empire includes sportswear, beauty, and fragrance lines, and the flagship store is a cornerstone of the meatpacking district’s fashion quarter, functioning as a boutique, design studio, and pied-à-terre for the CFDA council president.

In addition to the wrap, DVF hallmarks include graphic floral prints, cinch-waist skirt suits, and forties glamour by way of seventies hippie chick.

Tess Giberson Opens Her First Store With Spring Collection 2011

31 May


If there’s one thing we’ll never complain about, it’s a chic, new place to shop on Crosby Street. Tess Giberson opens her New York flagship doors today to an airy space decked out in white brick walls and hardwood floors. The store launches with the spring 2011 collection the racks—one that received glowing reviews during NYFW.

Titled Shift, it’s a fresh mix of jersey dresses and tailored separates. “I’m so happy with our first store, because it’s an amazing way to create the right environment to present the collection, and to be able to have my own space to experiment more with special pieces,” the designer said of her new space. We’ll be more than happy to partake in that environment.
