NEW YORK — For a designer, nothing says you’ve made it quite like a flagship on Fifth Avenue and after nearly 25 years in business, Tommy Hilfiger’s 22,000-square-foot store at 681 Fifth Avenue opening today clearly conveys the message he’s arrived.
“This is a pinnacle moment because everything seems to be working,” the designer said at the four-level flagship, where construction workers rushed over the weekend to put the finishing touches on the facade, dressing rooms and displays. “I remember that Avis tag line, ‘We Try Harder.’ I believe my team tries harder. For a while we were the underdogs. Now, we’re breaking loose with a lot of momentum.”
