Opening around the corner on East Elm Street in autumn is the 14,000-square-foot 10022-SHOE, named for the Manhattan flagship’s shoe salon, which, the saying goes, is so big it has its own ZIP code.
Across from the main store on Greenwich Avenue will be The Vault, 6,000 square feet of fine jewelry, and another space that will contain more than 14,000 square feet devoted to contemporary ready-to-wear and accessories. The main store will remain open while being renovated to feature designer ready-to-wear and beauty. These renovations and expansions will be complete in 2017.
“We’ve been looking to grow in Greenwich and this is a fantastic opportunity,” says Jeff O’Geary, vice president and general manager. He and members of his team are giving us a sneak peek of the contemporary ready-to-wear space for a WAG photo shoot featuring some of the store’s red offerings for Valentine’s Day. Even though the contemporary clothing space has not yet been renovated, it’s a fabulous setting with a seemingly endless series of white Doric columns. Those columns make the ensembles pop, suggesting a new answer to the question: What’s black and white and red all over?
Look one  – Model Deborah Fenker’s ready to rock Valentine’s Day in this flirty Oscar de la Renta crocheted number, ($2,990), accented with a Saint Laurent Paris moto jacket, ($4,990); a Valentino Rock Stud clutch, ($1,695); and Christian Louboutin Oeillet suede peep-toe pumps, ($895). The cocktail ring is also by Oscar ($190); the lip, Dolce & Gabbana’s Lover ($37).
Look two – Fenker anticipates spring in this ruched floral Dolce & Gabbana dress ($2,390), which still satisfies the red requirement for V Day. Pair it with a YSL clutch ($1,150); Christian Louboutin Oeillet suede peep-toe pumps, ($895); an Oscar de la Renta floral cocktail ring ($190); and Dolce & Gabbana’s lipstick in Lover ($37).
Look three – Like your reds muted? Make Valentine’s a day of wine (colors) and roses with this Nancy Gonzalez croc bag ($3,250) and these Gucci Marine pumps in Romantic Cherise ($650).
