This is the second store for the Italian fashion house’s sportswear collection (the other is in Soho)—a brand that serves as a midway point between the original Giorgio Armani collection and the lower-priced Armani Exchange line. The space is adorned with gray stone floors, black crystal-studded walls and giant LED screens in the window looping the latest runway shows. You’ll find investment pieces such as shift dresses with fabric-petal details ($2,695), and knit turtlenecks ($345) and cotton-blend cuffed pants ($475) for men. Also look for items from Emporio Armani’s casual line EA7, such as velour track pants ($195), classic denim ($155–$385) and multistrand long beaded necklaces ($495). Accessories such as velvet ribbon-tied pumps ($535), snakeskin purses ($1,195) and men’s leather loafers ($595) are stylish add-ons.
