SEC­OND NA­TURE Stella Mccart­ney’s sec­ond New York store car­ries over the de­signer’s em­brace of sus­tain­abil­ity with dé­cor in hand­made and or­ganic ma­te­ri­als— fluted ceramic tiles, re­claimed tim­ber, and tex­tu­ral cast con­crete. The ex­pan­sive 4,340square-foot space fea­tures a sky-lit lounge and grand stair­case, as well as Mccart­ney’s women’s ready-to-wear, ac­ces­sories, lin­gerie, and swimwear. 929 Madi­son Ave., 212-320-8350; stel­lam­c­cart­ney.com NEW DIGS The sparseness of Ba­len­ci­aga’s new out­post, the first US lo­ca­tion opened un­der Cre­ative Di­rec­tor Demna Gvasalia, con­trasts deeply with the brand’s two Soho lo­ca­tions. Car­ry­ing Ba­len­ci­aga’s women’s and men’s col­lec­tions and ac­ces­sories, the 1,800-square-foot shop is done up in con­crete, glass, alu­minum, and leather and fea­tures the logo-pat­terned car­pet that made such a splash at the 2017 Fall/win­ter show. Three stat­ues by artist Mark Jenk­ins wear pieces from the col­lec­tion. 840 Madi­son Ave., 212-3281671; ba­len­ci­aga.com A HOME FOR LUXURY Re­plac­ing Tom Ford’s for­mer flag­ship is a new space on Madi­son at 61st Street, on the ground floor of the famed Carl­ton House. Ar­chi­tect Wil­liam Sofield worked with Ford to cre­ate the luxe, twos­tory space that in­cludes ev­ery­thing from ready-towear and shoes to lug­gage and a men’s per­fumery. A dis­creet sec­ond-floor VIP sa­lon caters to clients look­ing for made-to-mea­sure ser­vice and a more per­son­al­ized ex­pe­ri­ence. 672 Madi­son Ave., 212-359-0300; tom­ford.com
