NEW YORK — Robert Graham has jumped into the fray in the West Village, opening a 1,260-square-foot flagship at 380 Bleecker Street. The boutique, which carries the complete Robert Graham assortment of men’s sportswear, outerwear, denim, furnishings, accessories and women’s sportswear, is the fifth unit to open this year and brings the company’s store count in the U.S. to 11.
“This is such an important branding event for us,” said Michael Buckley, chief executive officer, noting that the store is expected to attract locals as well as tourists. It will also serve as a showcase for the company’s wholesale partners who can visit the location to see the entire range of product and the company’s most innovative merchandising ideas.
