NEW YORK — Despite continuing economic woes, there’s a new crop of accessories and jewelry stores hitting the retail scene this fall.
Fine jewelry firms Anthony Nak and Temple St. Clair, costume jeweler Blair Delmonico and handbag maker Longchamp are among those opening new shops in coming months. These units reflect a continuing trend in the industry of small designers and firms opening their own stores, often as ways to build their brand names and generate higher margins than they do as wholesale accounts.
