Saks to open renovated in-store men’s store in Boca Raton, Fla.
New York — Saks Fifth Avenue is set to unveil a newly renovated men’s store at its Boca Raton, Fla., location in the Town Center at Boca Raton on Nov. 20.
The renovations focus on several enhancements, including six new dedicated vendor shops from Corneliani, Dolce & Gabbana, Ermenegildo Zegna, Armani Collezioni, Hugo Boss and Ralph Lauren Black Label, plus a denim shop and a new space for the exclusive Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s Collection.
Saks Fifth Avenue’s newly designed space is divided into sections focusing on different South Florida lifestyles. Design details include a handcrafted cerused oak floor from the Netherlands. A mix of found tables from Cliff Young, Julian Chichester and Lepere sit alongside accent chairs from Bright Furniture.
In a nod to menswear fabrics, linen and leather inspired wallcoverings are woven throughout the store. The accessories area will house inviting new display cases and sunglass walls with custom-made metal art screens. A hand-chiseled marble slab will serve as the focal point of the shoe space, with a sculptural Lindsey Adelman chandelier and custom banquettes for easily serviceable seating.
“Through these innovative renovations, Saks is thrilled to offer our customers exciting new lifestyle shopping experiences,” said Tom Ott, senior VP and general merchandising manager for men’s, home and gifts at Saks Fifth Avenue.
