Fifth Avenue is getting a touch of luxe, in a surprise switch from the recent influx of mass appeal brands.
According to real estate sources, Italian designer brand Dolce & Gabbana has just signed a lease to open at 715 Fifth Avenue, between 55th and 56th Streets, where Escada is currently housed. However, officials from Dolce & Gabbana could not be reached Thursday to confirm or deny the report.
