What’s In Stores

While Highland Park Village has always been a beloved Dallas shopping spot, lately, it has become a destination for fashion label lovers. We assume you’ve already stocked up on knuckle-dusters and Slimane-style motorcycle jackets, but here’s a reminder, just in case.
1. Alexander McQueen
It’s about time, yes? Almost every woman you know has slipped into one of those printed, cap-sleeve knit dresses, and so many of us own that iconic clutch. But there’s more, and you’ll soon be buying your TWOxTWO dresses and Art Ball ensembles from Sarah Burton’s warped little cave of eccentricities. Prepare for everyone to whisper knowingly, “I think it’s McQueen.” 44A Highland Park Village, 214.559.6140, alexandermcqueen.com
The label got a new designer—Raf Simons—and Dallas got a new store. See archival Dior staples reapproximated with a modern Belgian eye in the form of nipped waist bar dresses, appliqued blooms, crafty bits of trompe l’oeil and the kind of frothy pinks and blues that work with aplomb on a southern belle. 12 Highland Park Village, 214.520.6494, dior.com
3. Saint Laurent
Another one on the designer merry-go-round, Hedi Slimane’s re-brand came with a heavy hand of grunge nostalgia and a boutique to fit the bill. Don’t be turned off by the black marble, it’s perfectly cool to the touch, just like the mix of wispy schoolgirl slips and decadent leather. It doesn’t feel typically Dallas in style, and sometimes that’s a good thing. 28 Highland Park Village, 214.780.0184, saintlaurent.com
And, coming soon...
4. Brunello Cucinelli
Cashmere sweaters, silk crepe skirts, drawstring pants and buttery leather jackets—these are the Italian errand-running clothes dreams are made of. brunellocucinelli.com
5. Tom Ford
Welcome back to Texas, good sir. That “coming soon” sign can’t come down soon enough—there is no shortage of Dallas women looking for a shape-flattering silhouette from the man who made his name showcasing curves. tomford.com
6. James Perse
On an even more casual scale, you’ll have another spot to buy your perfect T-shirts (to tuck into your Saint Laurent leather pants, of course). You’ll be delighted with all the soft goodies at this Los Angeles outpost, but you’ll be especially pleased at how perfectly slubby it all gets after some washes. jamesperse.com
7. Ermenegildo Zegna
What better than a man in a Zegna suit? Our guys are no strangers to the classic Italian suit maker, but they sure appreciate their own boutique. We bet Ray Washburne and Stephen Summers were vying for this one. zegna.com
