GUESS Opening North American Flagship Store on Fifth Avenue NYC

GUESS, the American lifestyle brand famous for its trend setting denim and unforgettable campaigns, will open the doors to its largest flagship location in the world on February 17, 2011.

The store is located at 575 Fifth Avenue at 47th Street in New York City.
Situated in the heart of Fifth Avenue, one of the world's premier shopping areas, the GUESS store will add to the ever-exclusive neighborhood. The 13,000 square foot, two story flagship retail location draws inspiration from the new global flagship concept launched in Milan last year. Unique and custom-design features are present throughout the store, including hand-applied Venetian plaster and silver leaf wall coverings, custom-made chandeliers and an elevator draped in faceted black chain mesh made by Hudson Furniture in New York City. The store proudly celebrates GUESS heritage through eye-catching commissioned artwork on the store's upper level, including a denim rug made from over 500 vintage jean patches, and a handcrafted installation of over 7,000 authentic denim buttons mounted on a black background and painted with the original GUESS triangle logo. High gloss black and white fixtures juxtaposed against distressed steel and black wood finishes complement the store's aesthetic.

The plan is set out in a star sha…
