Domenico Vacca’s New Lifestyle Concept Is The ‘Casual Luxury’ We Wish We Could Afford
Fifth Avenue is widely known as New York City’s high-end shopping district. Opulent brands, including Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Armani, all have flagship stores that stretch along its corridor. And now Domenico Vacca is bringing what he calls “casual luxury” to this famous destination with a new lifestyle concept.
The Italian fashion designer, who has suited up stars like Jeremy Piven, Denzel Washington, Terrence Howard and Al Pacino, will open a 12-story space on 55th Street this September. This grandiose building will house Vacca’s new flagship retail store, a café, barber shop, hair salon, members-only club and luxury residences.
“I always thought of my brand not just as a label of clothes,” he told The Huffington Post. “It’s not just about selling clothes to [customers], it’s about designing their image, their look. And giving them confidence and developing a relationship.”
