The menswear boutique boom continues to expand—both Ralph Lauren and J. Crew have opened high-profile men's-only fashion stores in recent months—with Dries Van Noten opening his first men's shop in Paris. The 1,076 square foot store is furnished with 18th, 19th, and 20th century objets and features the original 1970s rust-colored paneling, reports WWD.
To mark the occasion, Dries Van Noten unveiled his debut evening collection for guys. Sold exclusively at the Paris store, the collection boasts tuxedo jackets and trousers, silky tops and bottoms and a velvet dinner jacket (in a color resembling the shop’s fiery interior). A small one-of-a-kind accessories collection in a similar tone is also on sale.This is Van Noten's fourth standalone shop.
