As we continue our voyage, discovering and dishing on the latest local retail debuts, our next stop is Dallas designer destination, Highland Park Village. Distinguished nationally as a top luxury shopping center, the Village is the proud home of many top labels and brands. Adding to its retail jewel box, we’ve spotted two new additions worthy of attention. Read on for the scoop:
#11, Between Dior and Tom Thumb
Luxury house Balenciaga opened the doors to its ninth retail location at Highland Park Village on May 20, 2014. The 1,150 square foot space mirrors Balenciaga’s New York City flagship boutique’s lavish motif, as originally curated by artistic director Alexander Wang and designer Ryan Korban. The store currently houses the Spring/Summer 2014 ready-to-wear women’s collection, in addition to shoes, jewelry, sunglasses, fragrances, handbags, and small leather goods.
While the label hints at future store openings across the East and West Coasts, much of the focus is currently on this fresh Dallas locale. The interior décor is everything affluent and posh, revealing hints of limestone, marble, and modern, mirrored chrome. Giving an appreciative nod to the tiles used by Cristobal Balenciaga in his original 10 Avenue George V salon in Paris, the Highland Park Location dons similar black and white tile flooring to welcome Dallas shoppers.
#46, Between Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen
Earlier this year, Italy-based Brunello Cucinelli celebrated the grand opening of its new Highland Park Village boutique with a special guest appearance by the designer himself. The sought after ready-to-wear collection is sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue, so it comes as no surprise that the luxury label would seek stand-alone residency at this prime shopping location. From tapered blazers to top of the line cashmere garments, Brunello Cucinelli is the epitome of expert craftsmanship, a quality that will undoubtedly attract Dallas’ shopping elite.
In addition to the debuts listed above, several storefronts at Highland Park Village appear primed for new tenants. We’ll keep you posted on any upcoming developments. Still hungry for more new Dallas retail additions? Check out what’s new at NorthPark Center!
