John Varvatos Enters Middle East With Dubai Mall Store

John Varvatos has made a move into the Middle East.
The New York-based men’s brand on Tuesday night opened a 2,937-square-foot store in the Fashion Avenue section of the Dubai Mall.
The store, which is the 31st retail unit for the label, is part of a geographical licensing deal with Casa Vida, which is part of Emaar Properties, a real estate firm that owns the Dubai Mall, according to Mark Brashear, chief executive officer of John Varvatos.
Under the terms of the deal, Brashear said, Casa Vida will open two additional stores in the Middle East over the next 18 months. The locations have not yet been identified, he said. “We’re looking at a couple of different options.”
Emaar operates over 6.7 million square feet of retail space in Dubai and also owns the Dubai Marina Mall, Souk Al Bahar and the Gold & Diamond Park, according to its web site.
The addition of Varvatos is part of the expansion of the fashion and lifestyle offerings at the Dubai Mall that involves adding another 1 million square feet and 150 new brands to the Fashion Avenue area of the mall. The company has a goal of attracting over 100 million visitors in the next three to

Dior Opens New Boutique in Dubai Mall

TRADING UP: Dior is the latest luxury brand to make a statement in Dubai Mall’s recently opened Fashion Avenue extension.
The French fashion house has opened a boutique in the exclusive section of the shopping mall, which is home to luxury brands including Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Hermès and Chanel. This replaces its previous unit in the mall.
The store, which offers women’s and men’s collections alongside jewelry and watches, is dotted with artworks and mirror-effect furniture, such as Guillaume Piechaud’s polished steel Galet table and Maria Pergay Gerbe’s console.
It features a herringbone-patterned parquet floor, nodding to house founder Christian Dior’s taste for 18th-century furnishings.
To mark the opening, Dior has created limited-edition products, including 30 pairs of J’Adior sunglasses and 16 pairs of crocodile-leather detailed sneakers.
There are also exclusive versions of Dio(r)evolution and Dior Addict bags; Dior Motion and Dior(r)evolution shoes; a Milieu du Siècle rose gold and diamond ring from the Archi Dior collection; a Dior Homme T-shirt with golden bee embroidery, as well as the BMX Serie 2 bike from the collaboration between Dior Homme and bike specialist Bogarde.

SHOPPING DEALS UPDATE:


This Woman Was Kicked Out Of A Mall For Wearing Shorts And A Tank Top

A woman in Grand Rapids, Mi. said she was recently kicked out of a shopping mall because another customer complained to mall security about her outfit.

The outfit in question? Shorts and a tank top. 

Hannah Pewee posted a photo of her outfit on Facebook after being kicked out of Grand Rapids’ Woodland Mall on Saturday. In the photo, she wears what any woman might wear on a 90-degree day in June: a “Finding Nemo” tank top, jean shorts, and ballet flats. 

“As many of you know, it is NINETY degrees outside today in West Michigan,” Pewee wrote in the Facebook post.

“So, of course, I decided to dress for the weather: shorts and a tank top. But apparently, how I was dressed … was too slutty for the public, as I was kicked out of the Woodland Mall today. Yup. Apparently some anonymous person reported me to MALL SECURITY for inappropriate dress and I was kicked out.”

Pewee’s post went viral over the weekend, with more than 4,000 likes and close to 9,000 shares. She said in the post that experience was so humiliating she “almost cried.” 

“I am so angry right now I’m shaking,” she wrote. “I felt so embarrassed I almost cried. All because a stranger didn’t like how I dressed.

Pewee wrote two follow-up Facebook posts after the initial incident. First, she thanked the Facebook community for their support and kind words, and in the second, she confirmed that a manager from Woodland Mall called her to apologize. 

“So I talked on the phone with the someone on the management team at Woodland and they apologized for what happened yesterday,” she wrote. “Apparently they’re going to revise their clothing policy on their website so it is clearer what is and isn’t acceptable. In addition, security will be discussing how to properly handle situations like this.”

The Woodland Mall website policy page currently has vague language about what clothing constitutes as “inappropriate.”  

“Appropriate attire, including shirts and shoes, is required,” the policy guidelines read. “Clothing with inappropriate words, phrases or graphics is not permitted and is subject to mall management approval.” 

HuffPost has reached out to both Pewee and representatives of Woodland Mall for comment and clarification, and will update this piece accordingly.

Tadashi Shoji To Open Store in San Jose’s Westfield Valley Fair Mall

Betting on maximum exposure to customers turning out to shop post-Thanksgiving, Tadashi Shoji will open his eighth boutique, at the Westfield Valley Fair Mall in San Jose, Calif., on Black Friday. The 3,000-square-foot space will carry the designer’s full array of eveningwear, day dresses, separates, accessories and girls’ dresses.

Taking inspiration from his nature-focused resort and spring 2017 collections, Shoji makes a departure from his sleek and shiny retail design to embrace a more organic and artistic concept. The new store includes a dramatic life-size arboretum; a glass house constructed from repurposed vintage windows; and a looking glass wall composed of mirrors and hidden video screen projecting runway shows and inspiration images from the collections.
“I felt this was an opportunity to show my customers something new and experiential,” said Shoji as he sifted through his store sketches and inspiration boards. “The innovative design allows customers to celebrate creativity and
