Coming Soon: Domenico Vacca’s Massive, Impressive Lifestore Complex
Domenico Vacca will soon be offering customers an even sweeter la dolce vita.
The luxury Italian designer announced today that he will be opening a so-called “branded luxury lifestyle destination” called The Domenico Vacca on 15 West 55th Street near Fifth Ave in New York sometime in mid-September. The 12-story space, which will have undergone a $20 million renovation when it opens, will house the designer’s new 8,000-sq.-foot retail flagship along with a café, barber shop, beauty parlor, a members-only club and luxury residences for long-term visitors.
“I have always wanted to express my creativity and sense of style in other lifestyle concepts,” the designer said in a statement. “This building is a mecca of extravagance and comfort, each aspect and detail a labor of love. For the new retail space, I wanted to create a place that is not just a storefront, but a destination that draws people in to connect, shop, and relax, reviving the in-store shopping experience.”
