NEW YORK — Two years after launching Alumnae, a chicly practical, flat-focused shoe collection, Kari Sigerson and Eliza Axelson-Chidsey opened their first store Aug. 6 at 60 Hudson Street in TriBeCa here.
At 545 square feet, the store is a tranquil, minimalist shoebox, but a big step for the brand. It’s located in a landmark building formerly known as the Western Union Building, designed by Ralph Thomas Walker and built in 1928. Neighboring fashion retailers include Thom Browne, Nili Lotan and Issey Miyake, but the area isn’t known as a shopping district.
The iconic Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue flagship will have a whole new look come 2021, reports @mistywhitesidell . The 10-story store is being expanded and renovated under the vision of chief artistic officer, Reed Krakoff. #wwdnews

(Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
