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 the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
