Akris Now Open in Highland Park Village
Founded in 1922, Switzerland-based House of Akris boasts but a handful of freestanding boutiques in Europe and the United States. Dallas’ own debuted this past Wednesday, August 1st, in Highland Park Village, neighboring St. John on the northern end of the shopping center. Inside, sleek blonde wood accents compliment Akris’ clean, streamlined clothing and leather goods. If you’re hoping to visit soon, however, you’ll need to look sharp for the as-yet-unmarked storefront. Exterior signage is expected to come very soon.
Piermarini Boutique To Move To Snider Plaza
Via ShopTalk this week, we learn that local favorite Piermarini Boutique will soon depart its Uptown location (2701 Hibernia St.) for a space in Snider Plaza. DFW Style Daily’s Abby Gregory reported on young owner John Piermarini’s “stylish sensibility and sartorial charm” last year, shortly after the boutique’s debut. Piermarini has become a regular stop for many in-the-know in a relatively short period of time, and this move will reportedly allow for greater growth potential. The transition should complete by the end of the month, and a sale will take place this Saturday, August 4th, to clear merchandise.
