FrontRunners: Park Avenue Palazzo

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2005

Like his clothing, Stefano Ricci’s new U.S. flagship store (212.371.3901, www.stefanoricci.com) is flush with extravagant detail. Designed by Ricci, the interior of the four-level structure in Midtown Manhattan includes large-grained New Guinea crocodile skin, travertine marble, and lacquered Italian radica wood with elaborate tortoiseshell-like grain that matches precisely from panel to panel. “It’s like a small Florentine villa in the middle of Park Avenue,” says director of sales Dario Donnini, who notes that the expansive space presents the complete Stefano Ricci ensemble: from cuff links and pleated ties to patterned shirts that change every season and trousers lined with Riva cotton.
