Nicholas Kirkwood is set to open its first US store in New York City at the start of 2012. According to WWD, the 1,500-square-foot flagship store will live at 807 Washington Street.
“We [have] some very loyal New York-based customers, and a presence of a retail location in New York will help continue build the brand awareness in the US market…” the designer told Vogue UK.
The NYC locale will be the brit-bred footwear designer’s second standalone shopping destination after making his debut in London in May of this year. Kirkwood’s celebrity following includes Beyonce, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sienna Miller and Rihanna.
