Shop Alert: DVF to Open in Boston

Diane von Furstenberg has not only been busy designing groovy patterned wrap dresses; she’s been opening up boutiques worldwide; 28 internationally to be exact, though only five in the U.S. But business is booming and open she will.  Although she’s got a flagship is in the Meatpacking District, and she’s secured a lease for a 2,000 square foot Soho outpost, which, according to WWD, Furstenberg says, will be “a lab to funnel ideas through all our stores and our wholesale business.”

More importantly, DVF is coming to Boston!! WWD reports that a DVF boutique will open in Boston in July. Must do some recon to find out where. I’m guessing Newbury; there are plenty of storefronts from which to choose. Any thoughts?

My favorite DVF looks for fall:

Shop Alert: Second Time Around, Three Times on Newbury

Is consignment shop Second Time Around trying to taking over the world? It’s certainly aiming to dominate Newbury Street. Yesterday I spotted its third outpost, at #324, between Hereford and Mass Ave. True, that last block of Newbury is like its own little world, but seriously? If they have that much stuff, then we’re all buying too much and disposing of it too soon. Though they do take on extra stock from area boutiques too. I should probably clear my closet and see if I can get some extra cash. Everyone else is doing it.

Shop Alert: Suneri Opens on Newbury

Well that didn’t take long. Less than one month after Luna has vacated its spot at 205 Newbury (below International Poster Gallery), clothing boutique Suneri is open for business.   Everything is 20% off on Newbury (they also have a location in Davis Square). The boutique carries pieces by international emerging designers including Lina Rika, Mouska, Signette, and Ronan Chen, plus Kinross Cashmere and Genetic Denim.
