Qela, a new luxury brand being launched by the Qatar Luxury Group, has found an upscale address for its first U.S. store at 680 Madison Avenue on the corner of East 61st Street.
The 6,100-square-foot flagship on two levels will open in early 2015, said Caroline Guillon, vice president of marketing. The group on Sept. 26 launched a unit in Doha, Qatar, and a store on Avenue Montaigne in Paris is expected to open in late spring.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
