LOS ANGELES — Blue Bee Men has good reason to gloat. Next month, the Santa Barbara, Calif., specialty store will join a handful of upscale U.S. boutiques boasting a Ralph Lauren Black Label shop-in-shop. Historically, the line has been sold only in Ralph Lauren flagship locations and upper-crust department stores, although other upscale specialty retailers, such as Stanley Korshak in Dallas, have also installed shops.
At 500 square feet, the shop will feature RRL and Polo apparel in addition to Black Label slim-silhouette suits, leather bags, woven shirts, ties and sweaters, said Marty Bebout, who co-owns seven Blue Bee boutiques in Santa Barbara’s State Street shopping district with partner John Doucette.
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)
