NEW YORK — Forever 21 is out to prove it has universal appeal — from Fifth Avenue here to London’s Oxford Street.
The chain today opens a 45,000-square-foot unit at 693 Fifth Avenue, formerly home to the tony Takashimaya, where spare merchandise was artfully displayed and fresh flowers bloomed in the first-floor floral shop. Now there’s a shoe salon and trendy items such as fake fur vests ($22.80), fake leather bomber jackets ($24.80), looped wool ponchos ($24.80) and one-shoulder velvet dresses ($19.80).
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
