NEW YORK — In tandem with its 50th-anniversary celebration, Roche Bobois, the Paris-based upscale furniture chain, today launches its fanciful Jean Paul Gaultier collection in the U.S.
The line signals the company’s intent to accelerate creative ventures with fashion designers, a strategy that’s been limited in the past to a few fabric and furniture collaborations with Missoni, Emanuel Ungaro and Kenzo. The 240-unit Roche Bobois is rapidly growing, opening about a store a month this year and next, and as the footprint expands, so must the offering.
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)
