PLINER’S RETAIL EXPANSION: Leather outerwear will be an important part of the mix when Donald J. Pliner opens four stores within the next year.
Next month, a 2,500-square-foot company-owned store bows in Coral Gables, Fla., while a franchised unit will open in San José’s Silicon Valley. The company will follow up with a 4,000-square-foot store in Beverly Hills next June, not far from where the designer opened a Shop for Papagallo store in 1967. He plans to open a Pliner store in New York for fall 2003, increasing Pliner’s store count to seven.
