Following the success of their Tokyo store, Juicy Couture is opening its first store on Manhattan ‘s Upper East Side. The store encompasses 2,000 square foot over two stories, with a â€œMadison Avenue meets Alice in Wonderlandâ€ feel to it, according to co-founders Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor.
The design concept will provide a blueprint for other Juicy Couture boutiques.â€œPam and Gela ‘s influence is stronger than ever in this store,â€ said Philip Johnson, Juicy Couture’s visual director. â€œWe are really starting to infuse their taste level into the design of the stores, and we will begin to update the existing Juicy stores accordingly.â€ By the end of this year, the company will have 19 stores worldwide and 20 more are planned for 2007. These will include locations in Milan , Hong Kong , Chicago , Malibu and Palm Beach .
