The former YSL store on Madison Avenue at 71st Street will soon have a new tenant: Emilio Pucci. Madison Avenue Spy reports that Pucci will be moving out of its digs at Madison and 64th Street to a spot with "much higher visibility" a few blocks uptown.
In related news, she also adds that Valentino has officially opened
in its own across the street from its former space on Madison Avenue and 65th Street, after a stint at the Regency Hotel on Park Avenue. And meanwhile downtown, the YSL signage that arrived in September at 149 Mercer Street is still anxiously awaiting its occupant.
Update: Madison Avenue's moves have been particularly crazy this year: Valentino has reopened at 746 Madison Avenue, across the street from its former store at 747 Madison Avenue.
