Soon enough, Versace will have two stores in Manhattan: a Fifth Avenue location and a new Soho flagship. We had heard a few months ago that the brand was planning to head downtown, but now there's an official address of 160 Mercer Street.
Though that's about the extent of the details, we do know that the opening party will be hosted by Donatella herself, alongside "Special Curator" Christopher Kane. As far as neighbors go, Versace is in good company: Saint Laurent and Balenciaga are both set to open on Mercer eventually, on the very same block.
