New Retail for City Center DC

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.

  • 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.
  • Burberry: Whenever I hear Burberry, I think of their awesome, Burberry-beige trench coats. $2,000 trench coats. I mean, the main point of this post is that I will be exclusively window shopping at all of these stores.
