Luxury menswear brand Canali opened their Upper East Side flagship over the weekend. The two-level store is the second NYC location for the brand, joining a five-year-old outpost on Broad Street downtown. "We've finally come to Madison Avenue. New York is our biggest market, and we felt we were missing the experience of being in the luxury shopping district," an operations exec told WWD. Worldwide, the brand operates more than 200 stores and shop-in-shops.
The ground level of the new shop opens with the company's collection of sportswear and sport coats, and expands to reveal furnishings and accessories that includes shoes and small leather goods. To get to the lower level you have two options: crystal glass elevator or marble staircase. Once you take your luxurious descent, you'll find the big baller goods: suits in luxurious fabrics, made-to-measure services, and a VIP room.
