Tommy Hilfiger to Open NYC Flagship

New York City Tommy Hilfiger Group reported Wednesday that it will open a global flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York City this fall. The store will fill the space formerly occupied by Fortunoff since the late 1970s. The 22,000-sq.-ft., four-floor store, will become the premiere flagship store in the company’s global retail portfolio. This portfolio currently consists of 545 stores worldwide.

When the store opens in November, it will join the newly opened Hilfiger Denim concept store and the women’s boutique on Bleecker Street in Manhattan, the Georgetown store in Washington, D.C., and the soon to be opened Miami Beach, Fla. store in May 2008. However, the new flagship location will be the first Tommy Hilfiger store worldwide to incorporate every product category of the Tommy Hilfiger lifestyle, including the runway collection, menswear, womenswear, childrenswear, tailored, footwear, accessories, home, as well as the complete Hilfiger Denim collection.
