It is a retail department so individual that it is said to have its own zip code.
Now Saks Fifth Avenue Greenwich is set to open its own 10022-SHOE store Oct. 20 as part of a major expansion and renovation. The 14,000-square-foot space — around the corner from Saks at 20 Elm St. — will feature such new-to-Saks designers as Alaïa, Aquazzura, Balenciaga, Alexandre Birman, Fendi, Givenchy, Nicholas Kirkwood, Stella McCartney, Gianvito Rossi and Dries van Noten. They join Manolo Blahnik, Chanel, Chloé, Jimmy Choo, Céline, Gucci, Christian Louboutin, Prada, Saint Laurent Paris and Valentino.
Look for all the fall trends to be on display, with velvet, loafers, ballerina flats, embroidery and embellishment front and center.
But 10022-SHOE is just the beginning. The Collective will open in February 2017, reflecting a modern, advanced fashion assortment. The first Saks shop for fine jewelry, The Vault, will open in May 2017. Both will be housed in the same building at 200 Greenwich Ave. with separate entrances. The existing Saks Fifth Avenue women’s designer store, at 205 Greenwich Ave., will undergo a renovation beginning in November 2017.
