Boyds Clothing Store Celebrates New Concept Opens
Philadelphia luxury store Boyds, an iconic Philadelphia Clothier celebrated their newly unveiled women’s ready-to-wear, handbag and shoe department section
which is now located on the entire first floor and mezzanine level on April 12, 2018 at their Chestnut Street location.
In an interview with the Menswear Industry Magazine Boyds owner Kent Gushner said “We’re repositioning women’s on both the first floor (9,000 square-feet) and the mezzanine (4,000 square-feet). It will be a dramatic setting with all new cases, fixtures and lighting, juxtaposing old and new: light contemporary cases and fixtures will contrast beautifully with our classic architecture that we are retaining.” (Source)
Fashionable guests enjoyed lite bites and cocktails as they checked out the renovated modern, well lit space which now features a light and airy staircase in the middle of the room replacing the heavy looking marble one, which leads to the mezzanine level where you’ll find shoes and bags.
Gone is the heavy marble stairs, and columns. Now there’s a great open floor plan for shopping. This photo doesn’t do it justice, but the room was a glow in the most beautiful white lite making all the colors pop
Including these cool Judith Leiber purses.
The classic Boyds Men’s Department is now located on the 2nd, with all tailored clothing to the third floor, divided into two venues: luxury/classic and young/contemporary (suits in that section will open at $595, and the department will have a different vibe and its own music).
