…I know it is not new news that Céline has opened on Madison (we posted a little tidbit here along with many other of our blogger friends a few months back). But last week when I was in New York, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to check it out and get some good pics for you to see inside!
Opening on January 26th, the store is just a few months old, yet one of the most highly anticipated boutiques to land on Madison Ave. This is the second retail shop for the French design house – the first being in Miami’s luxury Bal Harbour Shops. The décor is clean, crisp, and very bright – putting all the gems front and center to be admired…
On the first floor, you have small leather accessories, handbags, sunglasses, a petite shoe boutique, and an assortment of the Spring collection (right down the middle of the store) in which there were a few peplum pieces that were calling my name. As you make your way up the modern, honey wood, spiral staircase, you enter into Heaven, level 2. On this floor, there are plenty more handbags to choose from along with the Resort collection, and a runway worthy iPad case that puts all others to shame. Again – I need.
With two stories full of all your favorite Phoebe Philo pieces, it takes the strongest will power one can conjure up to walk out of here empty handed.
