|Hugo Boss, Kate Spade, Zadig & Voltaire, and Burberry will open in City Center DC.|
City Center DC continues to rack up the high end retail options. Four more more stores have declared their presence with new signage in the windows of two of the newly constructed buildings.
- Zadig & Voltaire: The CEO of this French brand comes from quite a family; his father founded clothing company Lacoste. Zadig's Twittter tagline is "The original idea behind Zadig et Voltaire is to create a new luxury." That luxury comes in the form of $215 hoodies and 'is-that-skull-really-made-of-lace?' t-shirts.
- Kate Spade New York: If Kate Brosnahan Spade's life were made into a movie, she would be played by Téa Leoni, right? Uncanny resemblance. Kate Spade is mostly known for handbags, but has developed lines of clothing, shoes, and accessories for women, as well. Fun fact: They're partnering with Gap later this year to produce Spade-designed clothing for kids. Adjust your xmas lists accordingly, children.
- Hugo Boss: This popular company produces four distinctly branded lines of casual and business clothes for men, women, and children. They already operate a store in the District, in Georgetown. Not so fun fact: Hugo Boss vastly increased sales in the 1930s and 40s by doing robust business with the National Socialist Party including outfitting the SS and Hitler Youth.
