Here's the latest on Walnut Street's new Vince store: Reps for the LA-based contemporary fashion label tell us that the 1701 Walnut Street location is scheduled to open early August, but the exact date is yet to be determined.
Measuring in at 2,000 square feet, Vince will retain the wrap-around windows from former tenant Juicy Couture, but it's what's on the inside that counts. Namely, Vince's full line of "everyday luxury essentials" for both women and men. Better still, we're told the Walnut Street location will be one of the few stores selected to debut a brand-new offering from the brand: men's footwear. Per WWD, the collection ($225—$550) will include an "embossed leather sneaker, shearling-lined boots, and a selection of sport-inspired styles." The Walnut Street store will also carry the brand's collection of women's footwear, which launched in 2012.
