Tory Burch Is A Baller, Opening Gigantic Global Flagship On Madison

If your Reva ballet flats have been gathering dust in a forgotten corner of your apartment, you may wanna polish 'em up and check out 797 Madison Avenue, the future site of Tory Burch's 8135-square-foot "global flagship." Instead of another boring construction pit, Burch is already garnering interest with hoarding by street artist James De La Vega, who has created a gigantic mural that represents "creative dialogue of sayings and drawings," between De La Vega and Tory herself (the two will collaborate on a project launching during FNO). Opening during Fashion Week, Burch's third NYC location—and her first uptown—will be influenced by the 19th Century townhouse it inhabits, and indeed, you may feel like you're stepping into a more palatial version (or maybe not?) of Burch's own home; Think a Madeleine Castaing-inspired library, gold leaf detailing, French side chairs, gilt chandeliers, rich plum velvet drapes, and a marble and mirror foyer. The boutique will also feature the Tory Burch signature orange lacquer doors throughout, plus exclusive touches like a third floor outdoor terrace with boxwood hedges and an espresso bar, and a fifth floor salon for private trunk shows and personal shopping. To celebrate the newest addition to the TB family, Burch is showcasing limited-edition collections sold only at this location, including shoes and handbags in exotic fabrications, eyewear, and eveningwear. Clearly, it's Tory's world, we're just living in it.
