PARIS — Givenchy unveils the final piece of its rejuvenation puzzle on Wednesday: a gallerylike Paris boutique featuring a series of black-box display suites and a long, gleaming gold ingot for the cash wrap.
The new 3,750-square-foot flagship on the Faubourg Saint-Honoré, which opens to the public Friday, is a dramatic statement for a French house emboldened by recent success, including a return to profitability in 2007 fueled by sales momentum on multiple fronts, particularly women's fashions by Riccardo Tisci, who shows his fall collection Wednesday night.
