Under the helm of creative director Sarah Burton, this rebellious British label relocates its flagship uptown to a larger space. Interior-design agency David Collins Studio (davidcollins.com) worked with Burton to create the opulent 3,500-square-foot store, featuring dark marble flooring and furniture with bronze animal feet and monster claws. Look closely at the walls and you’ll see shapes of feathers, wings, sea-horse tails and the famous “armadillo” shoe within the plaster molding. Glass shelves hold accessories ($350–$4,500), such as structured leather bags ($1,995–$4,500), skull-clasped minaudières ($1,400–$3,100) and ladies’ embroidered velvet shoes ($500–$1,000). You’ll also find the runway and ready-to-wear collections for both women ($1,200–$5,000) and men ($635–$2,500), including floral jersey dresses ($1,195) and stained-glass–print men’s sweaters ($995). Those with slightly less padded wallets can check out enamel bangles ($285–$345), skull-print scarves ($295–$595) and crystal cufflinks ($175–$215).
