I’ve heard that rumor too and they have wanted to close for awhile now
The space is now listed as "Coming Soon" on HP Village website.

I just wish that brands that don't do well there would try to open in another Dallas location like NorthPark that has higher foot traffic. We've lost DVF, Giuseppe Zanotti and now Stella McCartney. All of which could have possibly done well in another spot in the city.
I think Billy Reid will be opening in another part of the city from what I've heard.

Luxury rental pop up coming to HPV for 2 weeks.

It has been open a few years in the space that was previously PLAY Comme des Garçons at the Joule. Great little space downtown, wonder what will open next...

Dallasretail wrote:DNM got the official scoop - Goyard opens in November in the former Stella McCartney space. That should make it a pretty decent sized store. Certainly bigger than the tiny footprint Chicago got inside of Neimans. This is huge for Dallas and will certainly put us on the radar for more very exclusive retailers. I’m sure Prada, Miu , Moncler and others will be entering the market soon with some of the empty spaces at HPV and NorthPark Center

Clearly in the South Central US, only Houston has a similar shopping center concentration of luxury brands, but how does HPV stack up against concentrated luxury brand in other metros? Since the great recession, HPV has undergone a significant retooling, and my impression is that the shopping center may carry a moxy closer to what can be found in New York, Los Angeles than Atlanta, Houston, Miami or Chicago.
Is that accurate at all? Dallas has been making the list of emerging global fashion places since Lagerfield put on a show in the Fair Park pig barn, but is Highland Park Village ready for the bigger cat walk? I also think NorthPark Center has experienced a similar elevation in stature since the great recession, and with those two shopping centers advancing in the fashion scene, perhaps Dallas is finally approaching a new era.
If that's the case, maybe there's something to HPV co-owner Washburn making a play in the CBD with the purchase of the former DMN building. Putting the CBD back into play as a regional retail destination will only strengthen the case for even more exclusive luxury shopping in Highland Park. Putting a middle & higher end shopping center, hotel, residence and office complex next to the high volume revolving door of disposable income churning through the Convention Center is such a smart play I'm the Hunts might be kicking themselves about now....
Dallasretail wrote:I agree with your rankings for the most part. I was just in Chicago and I must say that DFW has quite a few stores that Chicago does not. Michigan Ave and Oak St are certainly lined with some amazing flagship locations of the big boys. But when you look at some of the more emerging and hip youthful brands Chicago just doesn’t have them. I feel like the West Coast brands are in particular looking at Texas before other non coastal cities.
hjkll wrote:In general I think Dallas is moving from a B city and metro into an A city and metro, we are expanding yet densifying, more and more people are moving here from the coasts, and many parts of Dallas are rapidly gentrifying or just becoming more and more expensive. Brands like Glossier and Thinx have tested the waters here, clearly from the huge demand. I agree with "Dallasretail" that cities like Chicago have a better positioning of the big names, but more people like Reformation actually try their hand with us. After NY, LA, & Miami I would say we are stop #4 in everyone's mind, along with SF and Chicago. (Everyone except Uniqlo who will soon be in virtually all of America besides Texas...)
Getting Goyard is a huge win for us. Highland Park Village is truly fantastic and a huge asset for the city. I wish they would do some work on their parking lot area in the village and decrease the number of spaces by 20-30%, there are just too many cars in there. On their HPVillage website I count 5 "Coming Soon" spaces, (one of which we know is Goyard) and another by soon to be vacated Saint Laurent.
On my dream list for HPV I would want Prada and Maison Martin Margiela, as well as maybe a few less "ultra big names" like APC or Acne Studios which would also be huge wins. In reference to tamtagon's earlier post, HPV is going past just being an amazing place in Dallas but a top tier NY/LA/Miami level player. I wonder when they'll get rid of Anthropologie. It just seems so random now for it to be there. That space could be divided in 2 for 2 amazing brands like Prada and someone else. Northpark has also been getting better and better since the recession and them getting Isabel Marant means they aren't playing any games. The problem with NP is they are so massive, change does take time. I wish they would get rid of the Expresses, Gaps, and Bath and Body Works of the world and just fill them with newer, fresher retailers.
Also, Dallas could and should be the top tier city of the Southern US. I don't know why but even though Houston is bigger, they are more forgotten about in my opinion. Part of it is we have Neimans, 4510, Stanley Korshak, etc, but even though Houston spends a ton of clothes, there is something about Dallas that we have this front row spot in business' minds to expand here right after they plan stores in NY and LA. I hope NP and HPV continue to get better and better, they're run by amazing teams so I don't doubt it.

I’ve always said this. They could incorporate parallel parking along the curbs of the sidewalks, but that’s it. The parking lot is just too much as it is now.
Robert Talbott locked out for not paying rent.
Sounds like another open space coming soon. We know Goyard is taking Stella McCartney. Any word on former Saint Laurent, former William Noble (2 spaces), former Molto Formaggio, former Hadleighs once they move, former Dior Beauty?
