Saks Fifth Avenue (New York) has completed renovation of its men’s store on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, Calif. It’s calling the 54,000-square-foot, four-level store The Fifth Man.
According to a report in Women’s Wear Daily, “The revamp includes several new designer shops, the largest men’s shoe presentation on the West Coast and a new underground home for denim and cocktails, called D-Bar.”
”We’re trying to create a wonderful store that caters to the Beverly Hills and California market and is not New York-centric,” Tom Ott, senior vp and gmm of men’s wear, told WWD. “The redesign was executed by Los Angeles-based designers to ensure it has a local flair. Even though we’re a big national company, we pride ourselves on understanding and assorting for local markets.”
Architectural features include exposed ceilings, hand-distressed European white oak floors, furniture from Matter, Porro, Boffi NY and Julian Chichester, and custom fixtures designed with Amanueal, Van Stry and CBX.
