Fashion of the Financial District
For many fashion and New York’s financial district don’t go hand in hand but a host of new shops opening up in early 2015 will solidify Tribeca’s thriving boutique shopping scene. It’s been rumored Los Angeles designer James Perse (257 Church Street) is opening up a Tribeca store in late April. His LA chic comfy yet fashion forward wear is a staple for the Pilates then brunch set and we’re looking forward to the store’s arrival.
The financial district is abuzz about Brookfield Place which is a new shopping complex adjacent to the World Trade Center. With over shops set to open in the spring of 2015 we can hardly wait. Stores include Hermès, iconic menswear store Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo, Thery, Judth & Charles, Scoop, Michael Kors, Calypso St. Barth, Diane Von Furstenberg, Paul Smith, J Crew, Aspinal of London, Burberry, Eileen Fisher, Sakes Fifth Avenue, Vince and Tory Burch. Brookfield Place isn’t only for fashionistas, there are tons of other retail and dining options set to open in the space. Le District will be a French marketplace (similar to Mario Batalli’s Eataly) with over 1,000 seats and 37,000 square feet of space, Hudson Eats will be a casual dining concept we know will be a welcomed addition for all that work in FiDi (as the financial district is affectionately called). The luxe gym Equinox, as well as a cooking school (The Institute of Culinary Education) as well as a child care center are all set to open in 2015.
Westfield is set to open a shopping center in 2015 at the World Trade Center which will include Armani, Kate Space, The Kooples, Tiffany & Co., Tom Ford, Apple, Bobbi brown, Godiva, L’Occitane, Lacoste, Pandora, Sephora and Victoria’s Secret to name a few.
