Valentino already has a location on the Upper East Side, but according to today's WWD, the brand is "mulling over" another spot a little bit further down at 693 Fifth Avenue. When asked about the possibility of a second store, CEO Stefano Sassi stressed that nothing is set in stone, but that they're "evaluating the space." Specifically, that space is the Takashimaya Building, which was vacated by Forever21 last year.
The article adds that Valentino will finally move into its new townhouse boutique on Madison Avenue between 68th and 69th Streets this summer, after doing a temporary stint inside the Regency Hotel.
