Dolce & Gabbana
717 Fifth Ave., 212-897-9653
When Dolce & Gabbana announced plans for a Fifth Avenue flagship, shoppers expected a bold statement. The Italian luxury label more than delivered. Known for its overstated clothing, Dolce & Gabbana spared no expense when it came to this three-story emporium. Inspired by the energy and tradition of Italian life, the store's interior features Venetian glass chandeliers, white marble, gilded full-length mirrors and vintage baroque sofas. The 42-foot-tall glass facade shows off the grandiose window displays, filled with the brand's staples. The store features floors dedicated to men's and women's apparel, as well as to shoes and accessories. It also carries lace frocks, mini leopard dresses, sheer blouses and a vast range of clothing from the label's ready-to-wear collections.
