It was a sad day when Moschino closed the doors to their quirky Madison Avenue Boutique and all their signature cheeky details (think staircase with a railing shaped like a question mark and a peace-sign-shaped door handle) were torn-down to make room for La Perla’s classic décor.
Luckily, New Yorkers and bold fashionistas can breathe a sigh of relief as the designer label, started in the ‘80s by Franco Moschino and now designed by Rosella Jardini, will be opening a flagship in New York City in what used to be the Quality Meats building in the meatpacking-district.
Moschino, Moschino Cheap & Chic, Love Moschino and Moschino Uomo clothing will all be sold along with shoes, accessories and fragrances. The store will be a surrealistic take on fairy tales with pale, luminous colors, teardrop-shaped light fixtures, tree-like racks in aluminum and a sleek white marble floor.
Get excited for the window displays which are always extravagant delights!
