Valentino expands in Dallas as it dumps NYC flagship

What does Dallas have that Fifth Avenue doesn’t? A Valentino, for one. While the Italian luxury brand tries to escape its prestigious post in New York, it is expanding its presence in Dallas. The ritzy retailer will add 690 square feet to its 2,505-square-foot boutique in Highland Park Village, a shopping center where it has had a presence since 2017. The Highland Park Village shopping center is also home to luxe standbys Chanel, Christian Louboutin and Cartier.

Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli and David Chipperfield Architects developed the store concept, which will include grey Venetian terrazzo, black metal, carrara marble and green velvet panels. Shoppers can spend their federal CARES Act relief checks on a fanny pack for $1,195 — or carry away two pairs of low-top sneakers for $595 each.
