Kirna Zabête to Open New NYC Flagship
The fun and funky luxury boutique Kirna Zabête announced they have outgrown their current Soho location and are upgrading. The store owners Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini confirmed they will open their new store at 477 Broome Street this May. And their old 96 Greene St. location will be the new home of Rebecca Minkoff.
The new Kirna Zabête will be on one level, allowing "the clothes to breathe," Buccini said. "We'll buy deeper into the collections. We're adding Christian Dior and Nina Ricci. We're looking at tons of other designers." The retailer currently sells Celine, Givenchy, Azzedine Alaïa, Erdum, Joseph Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung and Charlotte Olympia.
"The new store will be a different experience for our loyal ladies," Hailes said. "We'll offer warm hospitality, but the design will reflect the 41-year-old ladies we've become." Steven Gambrel is designing 2.0 with Buccini and Hailes. "This is his first retail experience," said Buccini. "We mix so many vendors and moods into one store - whimsy, glamour, femme fatale - we let the merchandise be the star of the show."
