It was announced that Barney’s New York is saying goodbye to former mainstay– Prada.
Azzedine Alaia will be assuming the second floor space in the Flagship Boutique and Valextra will expand into the ground floor space where Prada’s bags were sold.
Apparently Prada had desired to lease concession space within the store and this was not a ‘concession’ (pardon the pun) that Barneys was prepared to make at this time.
However, Barneys does intend to continue to vend Prada footwear. What a relief.
