NEW YORK — With its impending initial public offering, Vince is in a quiet period. But executives aren’t shy about discussing their stepped-up retail program.
The fashion firm today will open a sun-drenched, 3,050-square-foot flagship in SoHo here with soaring 22-foot-high ceilings and ample space to display the entire collection. The flagship, along with other retail plans, will no doubt be called out in the road show to underscore the brand’s accelerating brick-and-mortar strategy and evolving collection. While Vince’s owner, Kellwood Co., has not revealed a timetable for the IPO, it could happen as early as this year.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
