Fans of this high-end footwear brand won’t have to settle for the Gap line any longer with the opening of the French designer’s first boutique outside of Paris. Behind the black garage door lies a sleek space, with Cubist block sculptures holding a bevy of shoes for men and women. In the middle of the store, darkened glass panels create mini try-on stations, so you can slip your feet into classic styles such as suede wedge heels ($630) and more sassed-up shoes, including architectural metallic pumps created exclusively for this location ($1,540). Men can find high-top leather sneakers ($575), plus Hardy’s line of dress shoes (like dapper brogues; $785), which aren’t carried anywhere else in the U.S.
