Silvano Lattanzi crossed the line

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The Lattanzi's old store at 874 Madison was taken over by Ralph Lauren. The new store is now being renovated and set to open in June on the east side of Madison between 72 & 73.

72nd St. used to be the invisible line no carriage trades dared to cross. First, it was Berluti and now Lattanzi, it seems more and more high end stores are moving above 72 to escape the crushing rent, therefore, extending the shoping corridor further north. I think it's all good.

I think with the Mansion anchoring that corner there is enough draw to that area, that a half block north will neither harm nor hurt.

Well, SoHo wasn't always that expensive either.

I just hope that the mansion doesn't over take the St. James church. My mother used to be on the vestry and it would break her heart. I was always worried that the shoe shop wasn't doing well enough.

Listen, it happens all over the world, just take a look at what's happening to Savile Row.

For the price of their shoes, I'd hope they are doing well. I suspect they fit the economic definition of a "luxury" product - the pricier it is, the more people want it.

And don't forget Peter Elliot, PE Soles and Barbour are well established in Madison and 80's.
