From Ralph Lauren's palatial new store on the Upper East Side in Manhattan to H&M's new flagship boutique on the Champs-Elysées in Paris: here are the latest additions to your international shopping destinations.
Ralph Lauren has opened the doors to a palatial 22,000-square-foot (2043 square meters) store, built as an extension of the Polo flagship across the street at the Rhinelander Mansion. The boutique offers a made-to-measure department for bespoke tailored pieces, an on-site custom monogramming department and a fine jewelry boutique.
H&M has launched its 11th store in Paris, a three-storey flagship on the Champs-Elysées. Designed by famed French architect Jean Nouvel, the 2,800-square-meter building houses collections for women, men and teens.
Also in Paris, Yves Saint Laurent opens its first pop-up. The temporary shop in the luxe Saint-Germain area is dedicated to the label's new ready-to-wear collection, Edition 24, designed by Stephano Pilati.
