Uh-Oh Houston.....Closing luxury stores is normally a red flag to Brand Owners.......



Unless it's Dallas.....Brand owners are waiting for this to happen because they have more hope to GET IN.

Dallas couldn’t even support BULGARI. One of the biggest most essential brands had to close in Dallas.

Using 7 long paragraphs, explain why store closings in Dallas are actually a good thing

True. Bulgari is too weak for NorthPark. It’s more of a lower tier shopping district type brand like 5th Ave or Rodeo.

You are correct(not the sarcasm tho.).....This only says that people are more in-tune with Bvlgari in those places...DFW?..Not so much.

Well…Bulgari may have been an issue of lack of space. I could see them coming back.

When I get the time I’ll update it over the weekend with the actual luxury shopping list between the 2.

Jasonism is Dallas based, so his knowledge of Dallas’ fashion circa is greater (which is completely normal).


I have always encouraged and welcomed help on the Houston side because I am definitely not as familiar so please take a double look. I actually have not lived in Dallas for years now so I am playing catchup always haha.

Unless I missed the announcement, Balmain listed at the Galleria is only located inside Neiman Marcus not a stand alone store. I have noticed the Galleria is very deceiving in marketing and lists several luxury brands as such including others as Alexander McQueen (inside Saks) , Chloe (inside Saks), Chopard (inside Saks), Dolce & Gabanna (inside Saks), Etro (inside Saks), Giuseppe Zanotti (inside Neiman Marcus), Graff Diamonds (inside Saks), Kenzo (inside Neiman Marcus), Loewe (inside Saks).....etc

San Antonio has a Saks Fifth Avenue, so the Houston location although superior in selection is not a Texas exclusive.

Yeah there are some blurry lines I include Beretta (Dallas), Davidoff, (Houston) and Dr. Sturm (Dallas) as they are well known brands and notable openings. I try to be fair and not highlight several high end local independent boutiques from each city but still list them for significance. I do title the list upscale/luxury to allow some wiggle room too in the 'luxury' category haha

The list was never terms of winning or losing. It was to compare the cities and show the strength of the luxury sector in Texas. Stores come and stores go. Just exciting to see what is opening and such

I must've missed those announcements can anyone confirm/deny?

Shame if that is true Faberge was a unique concept. Would not be surprised about Intermix they have been struggling and closing stores for years.
