Nestled between newly opened Prada and Moncler, the store interior is gorgeously laid out with a background of black and grey marble, lustrous chrome metal finishes and mirrors (including the staircase), creating the illusion of a store twice the size yet keeping the feel light and luxurious.

The two-level, 4,800 square foot space features women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections, as well as luxury accessories and footwear ranging from traditional, to sophisticated to modern.

Women’s fashions are on the main floor along with footwear, handbags, and accessories. Menswear is located on the second level along with accessories for both genders including casual pieces such as backpacks adorned with red stars on silver leather, on trend t-shirts and scented candles.

The upstairs level retained the soaring ceilings and large rounded skylight of the original Carlyle complex, and allows natural light to flood naturally showcase the collection.
