vivienne westwood to open first new york store
After ruling the block at 430 King's Road for the past 44 years, Vivienne Westwood is finally coming stateside to open her first ever New York store this fall. Dame Viv will set up shop in three floors of a six-story French Beaux Arts townhouse that was once a part of the St. Regis Hotel, stocking ready-to-wear looks from Gold Label, Red Label, Anglomania, and Man, as well as her accessory lines, Gold Label capsule evening wear, and bridal designs, WWD reported this morning.
And following the success of her collaborative capsule with Opening Ceremony earlier this year, the godmother of punk will stock a selection from her iconic Worlds End collection at the new space. The NYC boutique will be Westwood's third US outpost, in addition to her Honolulu and Los Angeles locations.
