Versace opens in Soho New York
The new Versace boutique in New York’s SoHo district serves as the downtown sister to the fabulous uptown Fifth Avenue flagship store. The new concept boutique, designed by English architect Jamie Fobert, fuses Gianni’s decadent opulence and downtown cool seamlessly. This is best reflected in the extravagant mosaic floor (modelled after 800 A.D Basilicas) with floating curved plexiglass panels above the floor. The boutique will also serve as a laboratory for regular collaborations between Donatella Versace and curators. The first curator will be long time collaborator Christopher Kane, whose limited edition line for Versace will be stocked in the store.
