CH Carolina Herrera announces the relocation of its NorthPark Center store in Dallas. Taking over a portion of the previously neighboring Barney’s New York locale, the new space offers additional square footage and a new floor plan featuring custom design elements. The new boutique is scheduled to open at the end of January 2014 marking the brand’s 18th US location and 114th worldwide.
Unique to this 3,639 square foot space, the CH Carolina Herrera boutique features design components signature to the CH Carolina Herrera retail environment including noble woods, leather, silk, raw linen and aged brass. The furniture, custom designed in Oak, Madagascar Ebony, Mahogany and Amazonian teak, evokes a sense of comfort and warmth. The floors, altering from room to room, are constructed in travertine stone, dark ash wood and carpet paired with ceiling treatments in both wood and white plaster tiles molded with the CH monogram. The lighting is strategically designed for the space and ranges from bright, luminous lighting to darker, more tranquil illumination. The juxtaposition of texture and proportion achieves a modern yet effortless elegance atmosphere complementing the always colorful lifestyle collection for men, women and children.
“We wanted to do the CH Dallas boutique in a very cozy way – so people come in and feel at home. It is a universe of elegance, comfort and style all housed in a beautiful space.” – Carolina Herrera
Reflecting the chic and modern spirit associated with the brand, the new boutique speaks to the versatile CH Carolina Herrera woman, man and child providing a destination that embodies the CH lifestyle. The men’s environment is marked by a spectrum of grays, browns and blacks, accented by the checkered floor adding a subtle, masculine touch. For men, the collection offers a mix of casual wear and tailored suits all made of the finest fabrics with a classic style yet urban touch. Smart dress shirts, colorful neckties and luxurious knits in a range of hues complete the look. Herrera adds “The CH Carolina Herrera man lives life to the fullest; he is modern, secure and sophisticated. In my designs nothing is ostentatious, just simple details that reflect true elegance.” A change in décor is visible in the women’s area with its more refined minimalistic approach in which high gloss surfaces act as a leitmotiv against black rugs and maroon velvet curtains evoking a rich yet feminine feel. The women’s collection covers the entire range of possibilities from casual sportswear to impeccably tailored suits and elegant evening separates. When it comes to children’s wear, Carolina Herrera’s collection reflects the free, happy spirit and lifestyle of a child through its vibrant hues and soft fabrications. “CH Carolina Herrera reflects a spirit, an attitude towards life, independent of age. I have used pure lines, excellent fabrics and cuts” states Carolina Herrera.
