Saks Introduces its First Menswear Store

Manhattan outpost features an eclectic design and monthly fashion exhibitions
Posted April 5, 2017

Saks Fifth Avenue (New York) debuted its inaugural menswear concept, Saks Downtown Men's, in late Februrary – a 16,000-square-foot store featuring apparel, accessories and shoes – at 250 Vesey St. in Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. The store features a permanent space that will exhibit a monthly rotation of designer collaborations, exclusive collections and inventive visual displays. Featuring an understated, sophisticated palette – as well as views of the Statue of Liberty, chevron-patterned porcelain flooring, Phillip Jeffries handcrafted woven wallcoverings and an eclectic furniture mix – the outpost was designed to resemble a gentleman’s walk-in closet.

This store opening originally appeared in the April 2017 issue of VMSD in the "On Our Radar" section.
