FrontRunners: The Male Room

The Edwardian Room at New York’s Plaza Hotel is now home to a retail space by Angelo Galasso (www.angelogalasso.com). The room first opened as a men’s-only café in 1907 and later housed one of the city’s most romantic restaurants. Now it hosts the first U.S. outpost for the Italian menswear designer. The shop, which is accessible from Fifth Avenue or from the hotel lobby, is filled with display cases that showcase clothing, accessories, and shoes without obscuring the room’s original oak wainscoting and truss ceiling. Ready-made items such as $1,600 black-leather-and-gray-linen brogue shoes are available on the main floor, and the store is planning a mezzanine-level lounge where customers will order bespoke and made-to-measure items.
