Boutique openings roundup: Alexander Wang, Tom Ford, Lanvin

This month, Dior continued its series of store makeovers, New York fashion week brought new standalone stores (Alex Wang, A.P.C., Agent Provocateur) to the city, and Tom Ford and Lanvin landed on Rodeo Drive.

Following eight months of expansion and renovation, Dior has reopened its Hong Kong flagship store. Made by American architect Peter Marino to resemble a luxurious apartment (a trend in luxury stores right now, as any visitor to the new Louis Vuitton stores will find), it includes an entire floor of bags, another one for ready-to-wear, knitwear, and shoes, and dedicated areas for Dior Homme, VIP shopping and cocktails to unwind after the shopping spree.
