Field trip, anyone? Trusted tipster Jim Shi tweeted to us over the weekend that the Woodbury Common outlet mall is getting some serious new additions within the next six months, including Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, and Alexander McQueen. Rumor has it that these outlets stores will be right in the middle of the shopping center, housed in the old food court after renovations are complete. They'll be joining other high-end names here like Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, Prada, and Versace.
Apparently LVMH — the luxury group that owns Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, among other brands — are making a strong push here, Shi told us. In that case, we're keeping our fingers crossed that Louis Vuitton and Nicholas Kirkwood pop up next, since the Céline outlet of our dreams is already there.
