Just when we thought The Galleria had it all — Houston’s grandest shopping mall adds six new boutiques to its ever-expanding retail fleet. Ted Baker, Loro Piana, Massimo Dutti, AG Adriano Goldschmied, Tadashi Shoji, and Robin’s Jeans stores are moving into the massive space that used to hold Saks Fifth Avenue in 2017.
The new additions are part of Simon’s (The Galleria’s parent company) multi-million dollar expansion and renovation plan, which has showered the mall with updated interiors, new upscale restaurants (coming soon: Fig & Olive, Nobu, and more), and expanded retail — which most recently includes the opening of Houston’s first Céline and Christian Louboutin boutiques.
“There is significant demand to be a part of The Galleria’s retail mix. Through this transformational moment at The Galleria, we are able to deliver a vibrant multi-level mall extension anchored end-to-end by Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus featuring approximately 110,000 square feet of space for 35 new and unique retailers and several new restaurants, all opening in 2017,” says Chris Lane, the mall’s director of marketing and business development. “We are extremely committed to providing our shoppers with an unrivaled shopping experience that includes preeminent retail stores and restaurants.”
The new stores, which will border the future Nobu and Fig & Olive restaurants, encompass diverse styles. Loro Piana‘s Galleria location, which offers fine textiles and luxe goods crafted from the world’s rarest raw materials, marks the brand’s second Texas location. United Kingdom-based Ted Baker brings its signature contemporary men’s and women’s ready-to-wear.
Spain’s own Massimo Dutti features men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, shoes and expert tailoring. Both AG Adriano Goldschmied and Robin’s Jeans introduce their signature refined denim. Sophisticated evening wear comes courtesy of designer Tadashi Soji.
The new wing will also encompass existing Galleria retailers including St. John, Cole Haan, Tumi, Coach and Kate Spade New York.
