Marni Opens 2nd N.Y. Shop in Uptown Manhattan

Anyone living within the "5 Burroughs" (or even a short train from Manhattan) can now enjoy not one, but two Marni stores. After 7 years in SoHo, Marni has expanded its' N.Y. holdings to include a 2,500 square foot, two-level store on East 67th St. Huh? Wouldn't Fifth Ave or Madison Ave have made for more strategic locations? Apparently not. Consuelo Castiglioni, Marni's creative director, says their stores tend to be discreet locations with a hidden element that appeals to their customers. OK, I'll take her word for it. Regardless of the store's location, the actual interior of the store is said to be as 'eclectic' as the designer label itself. Unfinished walls, hole-filled ceilings, and hanging mannequins all come together to give Marni's second N.Y. venture a decidedly urban feel. With reports indicating the luxury market is poised to take a nose-dive within the next year, all that is left for moi to do is wish the Italian fashion label continued success. So, NYC ladies, check out Marni's new Uptown store while it's still there.
P.S. - There are plans to open a store in Vegas as well as freestanding accessories stores (be still my heart!)
