Balenciaga is getting in on the Hamptons retail scene. The Parisian luxury brand has rented 54 Main Street in East Hampton, a 900-square-foot space that was formerly occupied by Brooks Brothers. A Balenciaga employee said the company will open the space, but declined further comment.
Other high-end brands have retreated from the trendy summer beach locale. Gucci, which opened an East Hampton store in 2006, shuttered its 46 Main Street location last winter.
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)
