Looks like Balmain is opening up Texas first boutique store at ROD. Balmain seems to be getting more popular in America now. Seeing their stuff pop up all over the country.

Nice. I assumed there would be a Texas store soon enough. They are having their 2nd big pop-up at the NorthPark Neimans, so I figure a Dallas store will come along before too long.

I notice it too. Been seeing Balmain a lot while in Florida. Also see Beyonce is launching a line under Balmain.

Almost reminds me of when Versace randomly exploded in popularity. I hated that trend though.

Old but I agree completely. For what we’re talking about here, they’re each others equivalent. City limit or not, they’re the elite community in the inner city. And especially as shopping is concerned, they are the absolute equivilent.

I wonder if we’ll ever get a third major shopping destination in Texas. Austin is finally starting to get high end tenants. But even the ones that that they do have, their store footprints are much smaller than those in Houston & Dallas. Hermes on S Congress for example has a much smaller sq ft space.

You have to think that Austin will continue to emerge as a shopping destination just from high-income population growth. That said, its metro area population is far far smaller still compared to Houston and DFW.

The other factor is foreign shoppers. I don't have data, but have the anecdotal impression that the big metros draw in a significant number of foreign shoppers from Latin America and the Middle East. Austin just isn't as big a draw for those kinds of international visitors. Granted, a large number of northern Mexican shoppers visit San Marcos, but I doubt that those folks have the same kind of profile of the folks that spend lots of $ at luxury stores in The Galleria, Northpark, HPV, ROD, etc.

I would think the Austin airport doesn’t help lure foreign travelers…

Probably not, but it's more the nature of the local economy. After all, NYC and LA airports weren't exactly well-liked either...

Permits have been filed for one to open in Highland Park Village this Fall.

Miami is also up there with NYC and LA as far as shopping. And its airport is notorious among visitors. I just got back from there after staying a couple of months in the Miami area. You have no idea how often I heard people complain about how unorganized the airport is.
