Another luxury brand has fled the Plaza Retail Collection. Dutch lingerie label Marlies Dekkers closed up shop earlier this month. Their communications director told WWD: 'There was no traffic. It was always dead because there was no marketing or signage to bring people in. There were all of these odd jewelry, accessories and chocolate stores. If Marc Jacobs had a store there, it would have made a difference. We are now looking to open a boutique in SoHo and the collection will be launched at Bergdorf Goodman on May 1.'
