"New York-based accessories designer Devi Kroell will open her first Manhattan store. Kroell has secured a 4,000-square-foot space to house her oversize exotic skin satchels, crystal-studded ebony evening cases and avant-garde pumps at 717 Madison Avenue, neighboring Graff and J.Mendel. Roman and Williams architects who are responsible for the Royalton's recent facelift are designing the two-story store. It is Kroell's second boutique and is slated to open in the fall."
