Despite debuting its first NYC flagship just eight months ago, Roland Mouret is already movin' on up: WWD reports that the brand will trade in its 1,400-square-foot space at 952 Madison Avenue for a new home inside a six-story townhouse at 1006 Madison Avenue that, at 5,250 square feet, is nearly four times as large.
While still keeping that "village mentality" Mouret loves about the neighborhood, the new space will have 20-foot ceilings and will sidle up near equally fancy neighbors Intermix, Missoni, The Carlyle Hotel, the just-opened Apple Store and as of next March, the Metropolitan's Museum of Art's contemporary collection.
