Rebecca Taylor already has a shop in Nolita and one in the Meatpacking District, and like any good designer beloved by downtown girls and Upper East Siders alike, she's decided to open up a store on Madison Avenue. WWD reports that the flagship will debut on Madison between 76th and 77th Streets in June, where it'll stock ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, and limited edition collaborations.
Expect Taylor's traditional ladylike charm: Clothes will be hung on old ballet bars, giant Russian white oak doors will lead to the fittings rooms, and to spice things up a bit, her signature pops of neon pink will appear throughout the store. Taylor explains the setup: "We want the Madison Avenue store to feel a little undone. The Meatpacking District store on Gansevoort Street has a French quality. The Madison Avenue store feels like an art gallery." And much like a gallery, it's planning on bringing in big bucks; the Madison Avenue location is expected to be the brand's highest-grossing store, with a "volume forecast to be 40 percent greater" than the Meatpacking outpost.
