Dolce & Gabbana's revamped New York flagship opens today. The store, at 825-827 Madison Avenue, "houses both the women's and men's collections and exudes the same lavish and moody blueprint that highlights Dolce & Gabbana shops worldwide. A scenic black glass stairway, towering Murano glass chandeliers, high-gloss lacquered wood, mirror-finish stainless steel and basalt floors greet customers stepping into the women's store. The first floor is primarily dedicated to accessories and the main collection, while the second floor houses a shoe salon...[and] the third floor is evening wear...innerwear." [WWD, subscription req]
