More On Marant In Soho-------
WWD has more details on the exciting news you first heard here. The new Isabel Marant store is set to open in February at 55 Greene Street in Soho, near the corner of Broome Street. Thankfully, it’s a somewhat more peaceful part of the often overrun and occasionally unnavigable neighborhood. Marant’s New York outpost clocks in at 2,557 square feet, which will be stocked with her main line along with the less expensive (but no less chic) Étoile line, plus accessories and jewelry. In a sort of romantic retail move, the designer’s husband, handbag designer Jérôme Dreyfuss, has taken the adjoining space, which will be his first U.S. shop. We’ll be sure to swing by on our multiple future shopping trips. So far, we’ve got our eye on a few things from Spring, namely all the pale blush pink pieces, the little paper-bag shorts, and that black knit dress on Anouck. Check out our full coverage of Marant’s Spring 2010 collection and let us know what’s on your shopping list.
