Iconic luxury label Tom Ford will open boutiques at two of Simon's premier locations, The Galleria in Houston and Phipps Plaza in Atlanta. Stores will feature women's and men's ready-to-wear fashion and will open by the end of the year.
4,000 sq. ft. store in Houston will be placed in The Galleria's luxury wing, which includes Chanel, Valentino, Louis Vuitton, and Saint Laurent between others. At 4,500 sq. ft., the Tom Ford boutique at Phipps Plaza will follow the first-in-market Saint Laurent, the new Valentino boutique, newly-expanded Gucci and Jeffrey stores.
"We're very pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Simon through the addition of our two newest stores in Phipps Plaza and The Galleria," declared Tom Ford, the company's Chief Executive Officer, and Creative Director. "Houston and Atlanta continue to be firm markets for our business, and we look forward to serving our customers in these new stores."
"Simon and Tom Ford are a perfect fit combining one of fashion's most prestigious names with two of Simon's leading properties," stated Velda Turan, Simon's Senior Vice President of Luxury Leasing.
More than 30 million visitors every year enjoy visiting The Galleria, one of the country top ten shopping centers and the biggest in Texas. Spanning 2.4 million square feet of space, housing 400 stores and restaurants, two high-rise hotels, and three office towers, The Galleria is Houston's most attractive retail and tourist destination.
Phipps Plaza located in Atlanta's prestigious Buckhead district. It is the Southeast's premier upscale shopping, dining and entertainment purpose. Its mix of contemporary and luxury fashion is home to more than 50 market-exclusive brands. The ground was broken in 2018 on a mixed-use redevelopment which will include Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Atlanta, Life Time healthy living and entertainment destination, and a 13-story Class A office building. The redeveloped Phipps Plaza is set to open in phases beginning in 2020.
