I will need to see the link, please.

I will not be surprised that all the other high end stores you mentioned opens in the new Victory Park.
I really doubt that, Spade.

Quote:
Houston Texas exclusives- Bvlgari, Giorgio Armani, David Yurman, YSL, Fendi, Carolina Herrera, Bally, Feragamo

Dallas Texas exclusives- Faconable, Calvin Klein, Escada (2), Calypso, Anne Fontaine, Porthault, Robert Talbot, Custo Barcelona, Via Spiga, Celine, Hugo Boss,
Tod's (soon) Loro Piano


Again, Dallas hold it's own.
LOL. Sorry, but some of those Dallas "exclusives" are not high end. Those are grass-roots look-alikes. The exceptions are ESCADA (which in fact is found in Houston) and maybe Hugo Boss. Spiga makes Redbook shoes, please. Those Houston exclusives (which most are very very popular, by the way) I could have sworn might have been available in Dallas, but according to you they're not. Bvlgari and YSL are extremely important labels, so the fact that Houston has them and Dallas doesn't says a lot.

We don't need a Bloomingdale's. What we need is a Barney's.

I thought I hit the wrong thread, how did it become Houston vs Dallas?
I don't know about Dallas, but let me add that Houston's Galleria is really in need of an upgrade. It feels old, and I can see some 80s style decor in some areas, and area III smells musty all the time.


I think las vegas's malls are the best though, IMHOSNH

I could hate myself for doing this. This is what Dallas is getting...

Victory Park

I don't understand why if we have the better stores, why can't we get the better shopping center???

Not neccesarily, not everyone wears Yves Saint Laurent or Bvlgari...

Dallas is getting a Giorgio Armani and has a Carolina Herrera, Ferragamo, and a Barneys. You don't consider Tod's, Robert Talbot, or Loro Piana exclusive? I'm pretty sure they'd beg to differ...

The Valentino's link:

NorthPark Center - The Premier Shopping and Dining Center in Dallas

Easton in Columbus is awesome. It's got tons of flagship stores, from all the Les Wexner owned retailers that are headquartered nearby.

Lol, that's what makes them important because they're largely unattainable. The things that "everyone" wears can be found practically anywhere.

Barney's isn't a designer, it's a department store. Houston will get one soon enough.

Nope

They probably would. Too bad for them, it doesn't matter.

Thank you for the link showing that Dallas is getting a Valentino. Seems like since they're getting one around the same time as us, it's still a constant race. They do have us beat with that new shopping center under development, though. Another place for their ragdoll women to dress up in Dior for Red Lobster. Just kidding, lol.

Well Victory Park isn't a shopping center, though. It's an urban residential neighborhood with entertainment and shopping amenities.

from his link it says
Quote:
This will be the first and exclusive Valentino boutique in Texas.
So is this to assume that Houston does not yet have one or is that site wrong?
