Summer and spring are the seasons of retail in NYC, and there have been tons of exciting store openings to celebrate these past few months. Here, we roundup the hottest new store openings in NYC over the past few months.
LA-based brand Dolce Vida opened its first flagship location in NYC this past spring. Known for its gorgeous shoes, Dolce Vida was originally founded on NYC’s Lower East Side back in 2001, making the Soho flagship a homecoming for the brand. The storefront is elevated, inviting and intentional thanks to its neutral color scheme, modern architecture and welcoming staff.
Since opening its Nolita location this past spring, perfect white tee has become a staple (pun intended) for New Yorkers who love elevated basics. Full of wardrobe staples such as (you guessed it) white tee shirts, this store will have you feeling like you always have something great to wear.
After 30 years in business, What Goes Around Comes Around expanded with an NYC retail concept located in Soho. Beloved by celebrities such as the Kardashians, Rihanna and Brooklyn Beckham, WGACA is known for its vintage designer must-haves and one-of-a-kind pieces. The new space houses over 5,000 square feet of retail, including a huge array of pre-owned luxury and vintage ready-to-wear and accessories.
New York’s crown jewel, Tiffany & Co.’s Fifth Avenue flagship, reopened its doors with completely redesigned interiors. In addition to a stunning abstract skylight and video walls with jaw-dropping displays, the redesign includes a brand-new cafe called The Blue Box Cafe. With a menu developed and vetted by Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud, the cafe alone is well worth a visit.
Parachute’s new Flatiron location serves as the brand’s largest retail location in NYC. Designed to meld Parachute’s California aesthetic with the historical elements of the space’s nearly 100 year-old roots, the store is full of gorgeous green tiled columns, bespoke furniture and, of course, tons of cozy beds. A fireplace, seating area and welcome staff complete the illusion of being inside a friend’s home.
