NEW YORK — Brookfield Office Properties on Wednesday said that Scoop will open a store at Brookfield Place in downtown Manhattan.
Brookfield Place, formerly the World Financial Center, is undergoing a $250 million renovation focused on filling its 250,000 square feet of retail space with luxury and contemporary brands. The 2,000-square-foot store at Brookfield Place represents Scoop’s 19th unit.
“I love that they are a multibrand retailer,” said Ed Hogan, Brookfield’s national director of retail leasing. “They’re a neighborhood brand. Their commitment says that this neighborhood is mature and ready for a sophisticated retailer like Scoop.”
“We already have such a loyal New York following that adding another location makes perfect sense,” said Scoop chief executive officer Susan Davidson.
The retailer’s other New York units are in the Meatpacking District and the Upper East Side. “They know their customer and felt this neighborhood is home to a lot of their shoppers who live here and don’t have anywhere to shop within walking distance,” Hogan said. “Scoop is very much a New York brand. When people see Scoop, they think urban and sophisticated. Scoop sets the tone for our collection of contemporary retailers.”
Brookfield Place has signed Hermès, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ermenegildo Zegna, Burberry, Michael Kors, Calypso St. Barth and Judith & Charles. The last three announcements have been contemporary retailers, but Hogan said more luxury deals will be revealed. He declined to say how many retail spaces are still unleased, but expects the project will be fully leased by the end of the year.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
