Joe Fresh already has a store on Fifth Avenue at 16th Street, and on March 30th the brand will open another location on Fifth further uptown: a flagship at 43rd Street. Creative Director Joe Mimran refers to the two-story building as an "architectural gem," and the press release adds that the building has been of official landmark status since 1997.
In addition to housing the brand's runway and ready to wear pieces, the store will also showcase a large display of Joe Fresh Beauty Products, which will include "spring make-up palettes, bold lipstick colors and a rainbow of nail shades." But that isn't all the Joe Fresh team will be bringing this month. Prepare for a complete advertising invasion: The Times Square subway station will soon be taken over with Joe Fresh ads, and a television campaign will follow.
