Retailers are trickling in to the much-talked-about CityCenterDC—and, following this week’s announcement, it seems the shopping portion of the development is leaning increasingly accessories-heavy. A spokesperson for Longchamp tells us the luxe French label, best known for its signature Le Pliage totes, is locked down and is currently building out a space at the corner of Tenth and I streets, Northwest. The spokesperson says it’s too early in the game to project an opening date, but we’ll keep an eye on the store and update you as we collect more info.
While a selection of Longchamp products is sold locally at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, and Neiman Marcus, the new location will be the Paris-based brand’s only standalone boutique for hundreds of miles. The closest existing store is in Pennsylvania’s King of Prussia Mall.
Longchamp is also the fourth confirmed retailer at CityCenter: luxury luggage brand Tumi, the first to open in the development, debuted in December; a Kate Spade boutique is currently under construction; and men’s shoe store Allen Edmonds opened Wednesday. There’s no word yet on the rumored Burberry boutique.
