Century 21's new Lincoln Center officially opens on Thursday, but it's getting slightly more accessible every day. Last week the store soft-opened for VIP customers, and today a gaggle of bloggers was allowed to tour the space and take photos.
The eerily peaceful space contains a full wardrobe of marked-down designer labels. Women's accessories live on the first floor under a pizazz-heavy ceiling full of lighted red beams. On the basement level, you'll find kids' clothes and a ton of women's shoes, including full shelves of Manolo Blahnik and Marc by Marc Jacobs. We saw a pair of red patent leather Michael Kors wedges that we'd admired in nude at Scoop in Soho this past weekend; at Scoop they were $130 (down from $195), but here they were $99.97. Trendy loafers and oxfords from mass-market brands like Dolce Vita and Steve Madden round out the selection.
The women's ready-to-wear on the second floor is full of bold-faced names: Pucci, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Michael Kors, Coming Soon by Yohji Yamamoto, McQ by Alexander McQueen, Margiela, See by Chloe, Diane von Furstenberg, Halston, Marc Jacobs. A DVF beaded jacket was $269 from $595, while Marc by Marc velvet dresses ran just under $200. Somehow, the same floor also holds a full coat section, gym gear, lingerie, and more clothes for kids. Right now it's also home to an army of sales staff, all wearing black and all incredibly friendly.
Up on the third floor, we found menswear from Marc Jacobs, J. Lindeberg, Tommy Hilfiger, CK Jeans, DKNY Jeans, and Versace. There's a Missoni rack, but even the current Target frenzy might not be able to move the wide-legged corduroy pants on offer. A sleek office-wear section includes a full DKNY suit for $299.97 (from $595) and ties from Vineyard Vines for $34.97 (from $75), while more casual males can pick up Rugby flannel shirts for $39.97 (from $79.95.)
