At last, shoe designer Pierre Hardy is treading triumphantly on the cobblestones of New York with his first U.S. standalone store in the heart of the West Village (30 Jane Street). Architecturally minded, he envisioned the boutique unfolds as a series of spaces within spaces, including smoked mirrored partitions to create semi-translucent dressing areas. The entire space is finished with Hardy’s exacting modernism, down to concrete pedestals that feature his latest wares. And what wares they are. In addition to the full range of women’s and men’s shoes (including those Velcro sneakers that sell out season after season), the store also offers the ever-expanding range of bags and accessories. In addition, expect a very special treat for New Yorkers, a limited-edition women’s sandal inspired by the Manhattan skyline, perched on a gold platform. Did we mention he’s architecturally minded?
